CUDA 9.0 INSTALATION INSTRUCTIONS

Hi everyone, can anyone provide instructions to install cuda 9.0 I used the page from the legacy releases:

https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-90-download-archive?target_os=Linux&target_arch=x86_64&target_distro=Ubuntu&target_version=1604&target_type=debnetwork

But everytime I follow the exact instructions I’m getting cuda 9-1. Any suggestions ?

once a new version of CUDA is released, if you are using the network deb install method, it will pick up the latest cuda if you install cuda package (sudo apt-get install cuda)

If you want to install a prior version, do

sudo apt-get install cuda-9-0

This is covered in the linux install guide.

I think that given the url, and that since the deb file specify the version of cuda, it will be much better to specify in the legacy URL.

It’s very confusing installing a deb repo with cuda-9.0 specification and getting cuda-9.1

I just trapped myself in same error. There is strong use case when users need to install Tensorflow binary package which currently (r1.6) requires CUDA 9.0.

step 5 in install guide is still misleading http://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-installation-guide-linux/index.html#ubuntu-installation

Please, reconsider updating ramdisk boot image without making BACKUP (rollback) image.
Nvidia may screw up other drivers in the way and may damage boot process. In fact you just did it to me. Kindly follow standard DEB package practice, if ramdisk is updated - keep the previous copy registered in grub.
