I am trying to install CUDA on an EC2 P3.8xlarge Ubuntu 18.04 LTS instance following the instructions Amazon has laid out and other guides around when those didn’t work.
I cannot get this to work and I’ve spent about 8 hours doing this so far.
Whenever I get to
nvidia-smi I get
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
Whenever I try and install the driver through a .run file with the 8-bit interface a warning comes up first giving
WARNING: You do not appear to have an NVIDIA GPU supported by the 410.79 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver installed in this system. For further details, please see the appendix SUPPORTED NVIDIA GRAPHICS CHIPS in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
How can I install CUDA? This is driving me mad.
