Cuda install failure on Ubuntu VM

On a Ubuntu 18.04 VM running under Windows 11, I attempted install of CUDA toolkit 11.6
Installation failed. It says driver did not install, but doesn’t say why.
What do I do now?

antonio@VM2:~$ sudo sh
[sudo] password for antonio:
Installation failed. See log at /var/log/cuda-installer.log for details.

antonio@VM2:~$ cat /var/log/cuda-installer.log

What GPU are you using?

I’m using RTX A4000 GPU.

Just checking it wasn’t too old for the toolkit, (it’s not).

I know it is not a hardware issue, because I have CUDA installed on the Windows 11 OS, where it works just fine, working of course with the very same one-and-only GPU.

It is the Ubuntu VM running under windows where CUDA will not install, so it has to be something associated with the VM.

Is there perhaps something I need to do differently when installing in a VM? I have not found anything in the NVDIA docs that mentions anything different for a VM.

Would like to hear whether others have installed on a VM.

I have resolved this issue!

It turns out that Microsoft hyper-v on windows 11 does not yet support GPU use by a cuda program.

However, WSL (windows subsystem for Linux) does. So I moved from a hyper-v VM to WSL, and now I’m able to build Linux cuda executables, and run them, on my windows machine.
