Fixing a versioning problem with CUDA 2.3

In an earlier posting, I observed that CUDA 2.3 wants to use GCC 4.3, which is a problem for Fedora 11 and Ubuntu 9.10. I've been itching to upgrade my distribution on my NVIDIA Linux box, and particularly itching to move to Ubuntu. I found some help on Thomas Moelhave's blog. Thanks, Thomas!

In addition to his instructions, I needed to install some stuff.
sudo aptitude install freeglut3 \
   freeglut3-dev libXmu-dev libXi-dev
Once I did that and completed his instructions, everything worked great. The rest of my Ubuntu 9.10 installation is completely intact and happy.
