"Failed to get convolution algorithm" problem

Hi,

I was trying to run a DL program using cuDNN 7.4.2, tensorflow 1.13.1 and CUDA 10.0. It used to work, but today I got the following error.

2019-03-13 11:33:41.129307: I tensorflow/stream_executor/dso_loader.cc:152] successfully opened CUDA library libcublas.so.10.0 locally

How can I resolve this issue? Thank you!

This fixed my same problem.
https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1021858/jetson-tx2/tensorflow-memory-error/
config = tf.ConfigProto()
config.gpu_options.allow_growth = True
sess = tf.Session(config=config)

I have tried these codes,it worked.Thanks~
But the i found that the pool layer’s relu function of the convolution algorithm didn’t work in gpu,how to solve it?

The suggested solution did not work for me :(

Many others are reporting the same problem.

So…
after some more experimentation. a reboot and the following sequence made the 1D convolution work.

import tensorflow as tf
config = tf.ConfigProto()
config.gpu_options.allow_growth = True
tf.keras.backend.set_session(tf.Session(config=config))

The thing to highlight is that this required a full reboot, and was the first sequence executed.

This did not work previously when I tried without a reboot. Even shutting down and restarting jupyter notebook did not help.

Here’s what I have installed for reference, with a GTX 1660 Ti on an ASUS ROG Strix laptop under Ubuntu 18.04.

sudo dpkg -i libcudnn7_7.4.1.5-1+cuda10.0_amd64.deb libcudnn7-dev_7.4.1.5-1+cuda10.0_amd64.deb libcudnn7-doc_7.4.1.5-1+cuda10.0_amd64.deb pip3 install --upgrade tensorflow-gpu==1.13.1
