Assistance Required for CUDA Initialization Error in TensorFlow

I am reaching out to seek assistance with an issue I am encountering while using TensorFlow with CUDA in my project. I have configured my environment to utilize CUDA for GPU acceleration, but I am facing a CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED error during the initialization process.

Issue Description
The specific error message I am encountering is as follows:

failed call to cuInit: CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED: initialization error
hostname: aindra-MS-7D99
libcuda reported version is: NOT_FOUND: was unable to find DSO loaded into this program
kernel reported version is: 470.239.6

Despite setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable correctly, TensorFlow seems unable to locate Here is the relevant portion of my Python script:

def register(data_queue, triplet_files, horizontal_files, vertical_files, batch_size, pause_lock):
ld_library_path = os.getenv(“LD_LIBRARY_PATH”)
print(“LD_LIBRARY_PATH:”, ld_library_path)

tx_graph = reg.tx_est_graph(batch_size=batch_size)

gpu_options = tf.compat.v1.GPUOptions(per_process_gpu_memory_fraction=0.6)
with tf.compat.v1.Session(graph=tx_graph, config=tf.compat.v1.ConfigProto(gpu_options=gpu_options)) as sess:
    ld_library_path = os.getenv("LD_LIBRARY_PATH")
    print("LD_LIBRARY_PATH:", ld_library_path)
    init = tx_graph.get_collection("init")

    triplet_txs = reg.compute_triplet_txs(triplet_files, tx_graph, sess, pause_lock)
    horizontal_txs = reg.compute_horizontal_txs(horizontal_files, tx_graph, sess, pause_lock)
    vertical_txs = reg.compute_vertical_txs(vertical_files, tx_graph, sess, pause_lock)

    pair_translations = horizontal_txs + vertical_txs + triplet_txs
    with open('/tmp/pair_tx.pkl', 'wb') as f:
        pickle.dump(pair_translations, f)


Environment Details:
CUDA Version: 11.4
TensorFlow Version: 2.9.0
Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04
CUDA Libraries Path: /usr/local/cuda-11.4/lib64

When we started seeing the issue:
we implimented an process in cpp where we link python and cpp we created a cmakelist.txt to create the file which can be used by python file to call the cpp functions

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.10)

Enable C++17


find_package(OpenCV REQUIRED)

If you use CUDA, uncomment the following line



Create a shared library from add.cpp

add_library(add SHARED add.cpp)

Set the output directory for the shared library

set_target_properties(add PROPERTIES

target_link_libraries(add ${OpenCV_LIBS})

Steps Taken

  1. Verified that LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set correctly: which is correctly set
  2. checked the working reverting back without the cpp implementation: It is working normally

Despite these efforts, the initialization error persists. I would greatly appreciate any guidance or suggestions you could provide to help resolve this issue. Specifically, any insights into correctly configuring TensorFlow to locate or any additional debugging steps would be highly valuable.

Thank you for your time and assistance.
