Recently after typing ‘nvidia-smi’ into my terminal I receive ‘NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running’.
From looking at the log files I did notice the following
/bin/systemctl status nvidia-suspend.service nvidia-hibernate.service nvidia-resume.service ● nvidia-suspend.service - NVIDIA system suspend actions Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/nvidia-suspend.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: inactive (dead) ● nvidia-hibernate.service - NVIDIA system hibernate actions Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/nvidia-hibernate.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: inactive (dead) ● nvidia-resume.service - NVIDIA system resume actions Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/nvidia-resume.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: inactive (dead)
I attempted to fix this with a few solutions I found online, but didn’t have much luck. I am currently thinking of purging the current drivers and installing the 510 drivers (currently using 470). However, I just wanted to check that this would make sense and this issue isn’t something else.
