Have Cuda and Vulkan co-exist in Ubuntu 16.04

Hi guys,

I installed CUDA 7.5 a while ago to be able to work on a work project from home.

But, I would like to also to play with Vulkan a bit and get familiar with it. So I install the driver we can all easily find on NVidia’s website.

The problem is that it breaks the CUDA installation. When I tried cuda after, it was not working. The current version of the driver with CUDA is 361.77, but 364.* or more is required for Vulkan.

Is there a way to have both of them installed without interfering with each other?

You can certainly use newer drivers with CUDA 7.5

If you install drivers incorrectly (e.g. mixing package manager and runfile installer methods) that will break things.
