CUDA 9.1 installation for GeForce GTX 1080 Ti fails on Ubuntu 17.10.

Hi,

I have installed the driver version 384.111 for the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti. I have gone through the documentation and installed CUDA 9.1. After building the samples and running the deviceQuery executable, I get the following error:

aditya@AID:~/NVIDIA_CUDA-9.1_Samples/bin/x86_64/linux/release$ ./deviceQuery
./deviceQuery Starting…

CUDA Device Query (Runtime API) version (CUDART static linking)

cudaGetDeviceCount returned 35
-> CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version
Result = FAIL

What do I do?

384.111 is not compatible/usable with CUDA 9.1
Ubuntu 17.10 is not officially supported by CUDA 9.1

You haven’t followed the instructions in the linux install guide carefully.

Read the linux install guide carefully: http://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-installation-guide-linux/index.html

Thank you for your prompt response. Any idea as to when driver and Cuda support will be extended to Ubuntu 17.10??

Also, the internet has a few articles that show you custom installations of Nvidia drivers(384.111 for Geforce GTX 1080 Ti on ubuntu 17.10) and CUDA toolkits(9.1).
eg. https://zhuanlan.zhihu.com/p/30781460
Are such custom installations possible? How would one figure them out.
