I have a large and popular HP DL980 that currently runs CentOS 6. A while back we installed a K40c GPU and CUDA 7.5 and later 8.0.
We’ve recently gotten requests for software like TensorFlow, whose installation favors Ubuntu. I haven’t gotten TensorFlow working with CentOS 6.
Would it be reasonable to install things like TensorFlow inside an Ubuntu or debian virtual machine using KVM?
It’s not clear whether it’s a good idea to have the host OS be Ubuntu or debian.
Also, if I use debian instead of Ubuntu, should I expect Ubuntu GPU projects to work?
