DIGITS (in container) keeps failing - cudaRuntimeGetVersion() #35 - Driver 390.48

Hi,

I’m trying to run DIGITS in a container on Ubuntu 16.04. I’ve done the usual steps - removed / blacklisted the nouveau display drivers etc, install latest drivers from the site. I’m still facing the dreaded error #35 though. Here are the versions that I’m using:

lsb_release -a

Release: 16.04

From what I understand, the only pre-requisite that the digits image has are the correct display drivers present. No cuda runtime / etc should be needed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe you can try the sample container and see if the error is gone. This post on github mentioned the problem similar to yours (https://github.com/NVIDIA/nvidia-docker/issues/656). Note you have to specify --runtime=nvidia as your docker run option.

A video walkthrough of natively installing NVIDIA DIGITS on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is available here:
