Can I install CUDA without X?

I know I can use the card from the console without X enabled but can I install the drivers without even having X?

Sorry for the newbie question, couldn’t find an answer with the search.

Yeah you can. The driver installer will try and install the X11 driver and OpenGL libraries, but it won’t hurt anything if you let it. Alternatively, you can use the installer advanced options to just install the kernel driver and kernel support libraries. That is enough for CUDA (and OpenCL if you have a driver with OpenCL support). We have a bunch of cluster nodes that run like that.

Thanks a bunch!
