I am trying to get CUDAFunctionLoad to work with Mathematica 9.0. I installed the latest clang and the Nvidia Tools 6.0. but I keep getting the error message:

CUDAFunctionLoad::cmperr: "-- Message text not found -- 
                             "clang: error: unsupported option -dumpspecs" "

I note that others have the same problem. i asked NVIDIA and Wolfram Reaserch for help and they have not come up with any solution so far, although they suspect the problem is that clang in latest version is not compatible with Mathematica 9.0.

Any help, insights or leads would be very much appreciated.

    $\begingroup$ Please provide all the commands that you used to load CudaLink. $\endgroup$ – fcpenha May 7 '14 at 18:45

Try using the following, so you update CudaLink in the process:

     CUDAResourcesInstall[Update -> True]
     CUDAQ[] (* This might take long *)
