We recently bought HP Proliant DL385 v2 server with NVIDIA A40 Graphic Card installed.
We are using Ubuntu 18.04, but we are not able to use DisplayPort of A40 Graphics card.
Solutions tried & insights :
- Tried different versions of Nvidia drivers.
- Changed the mode of graphic card to 256 MB Display Mode with Display Mode Selector Tool.
- Default graphics of Ubuntu in “about section” is llvmpipe and is not changing to Nvidia’s, despite using Nvidia proprietary driver from Additional Drivers settings.
- PRIME Settings or Profiles not showing in nvidia-settings.
Would be glad to provide more info as needed.
