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


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:

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).
Are such custom installations possible? How would one figure them out.
