So I have an amd/nvidia build and I have trouble making the nvidia gpu to work. As I can see a lot of people face issues although none of the solutions proposed fix my problem. Right now I installed the nvidia drivers following this guide for Ubuntu 16.04 https://www.tensorflow.org/install/gpu
After installing the driver (418 currently) I am stuck in a login loop. I have tried many versions (430,440,450) from ppa and the same problem still occurs. I only have access to tty.
I only want to use the nvidia gpu I do not care about the embedded one so I did not download any drivers for it.
Some info that could be useful:
I have installed nvidia prime-select and selected nvidia. Tthe prime-select query output is nvidia.
From the solutions I found while browsing the forum I have changed the 10-amdgpu.conf file to :
I also tried the option Option “PrimaryGPU” “Yes” for the nvidia configuration file although that results in a black screen and a parsing error in the bug report so I removed it.
This is my current bug report I tried to look it and see if I can make sense out of it but this is beyond my knowledge.
Let me know if any additional info is required.
