Hi, I downloaded cuda 7.5 release candidate from nvidia’s page, after installing I can’t start graphic mode anymore. Using the rescue mode I tried:
My architecture is x86_64, gcc 4.9.2, Intel Core i7-3770 3.40 GHz, Linux kernel 3.19.0-26-generic
apt-get remove --purge nvidia
After executing this as root nvidia directories where still there but no unninstal binary.
sudo apt-get autoremove
as a normal user I manager to start the system in text only mode.
Then I tried installing the release version of 7.5 but now I only get a message of
Starting version 219
Again only the rescue mode works.
As I installed I remember a message suggesting to change something in grub to load a different kernel in case the drive didn’t load, however, since I was using the text mode I couldn’t go back to see what it said. In grub in “advanced options” I can see options to load previous versions of the kernel, but any of them works, I assume they are all using the new driver now.
So, how do I go to a working version or even better… is there a way to make cuda 7.5 and everything else work with this system?
Thanks a lot in advance
