CUDA 7.0 SLES11 Driver for Quadro K6000 to run X11 ?

OS Linux x86_64 LSES11 SP3

The included driver in CUDA 7.0 = 346.46 lacks support for X11 on Quadro K6000.

“Ignoring unsupported device” in Xorg.0.log

Is there a workaround so I can run X11 and CUDA 7.0 at the same time ?

OK to install latest long lived driver (352.21) for K6000 after CUDA install ?

I’m pretty sure 346.46 supports Quadro K6000.

I suspect you might be misinterpreting that error message.

Anyway, yes, you can use any driver that is 346.46 or newer with CUDA 7. If you install another driver, be sure to match the installation method. If you installed previously using runfile, then install the newer driver with runfile.

I downloaded the local rpm repo (1GB)
when I try to install with the NVi*.run it warns about previous
rpm version.

If I try to “zypper remove” the gfxG03 rpm it wants to remove lots of other stuff at the
same time.

Any advice on how to resolve this ?

Here is a small part of the Xorg log, X11 refuses to start,
I was previously on CUDA 6.5 with no problems, X11 working OK.
I have removed all traces of cuda 6.5 (rpm)

nvidia-smi is happy, reporting 346.46 version an all values seems resonable.

I can build and run the command line tools in cuda 7.0 samples,
like deviceQuery and bandwidthTest, they work OK.

I have extracted only the Quadro lines from the Xorg0.log file
look at the end …

Look at the begining of the logout output:
(II) NVIDIA GLX Module [u]346.46[/u] Tue Feb 17 17:46:53 PST 2015

346.46 is the version shipping with the CUDA 7.0,
repo downloaded 2 days ago.

And “modinfo nvidia” also returns 346.46

Had CUDA 6.5 running ok on this boxen,
only removed it and installed 7.0 per the documentaion,
and now its foobar.

Do not understand what the diffrence is,
I uninstalled all the CUDA + Nvidia rpm’s again.

This time installed with the RUN version, now X works !

Driver is still 346.46

Will try to upgrade to latest long time driver
