How to install tesla T4 drivres

Hello everyone,

I have a T4, the system is installed ubuntu 16.04 , I found the Ubuntu driver for T4 on the official website,Install according to the steps:

i) dpkg -i nvidia-diag-driver-local-repo-ubuntu1604-410.72_1.0-1_amd64.deb’ for Ubuntu ii) apt-get updateiii)apt-get install cuda-drivers iv) reboot`

When I reboot the machine , Input in the terminal ‘nvidia-smi’ , report an error ‘NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running’.

Please o(╥﹏╥)o

You should rather install the driver using the Ubuntu graphics ppa:

To install cuda:

  • Don’t use the .run installers, use --uninstall to uninstall them
  • purge anthing nvidia/cuda
  • add the ubuntu graphics ppa
  • install the driver from that
  • download the cuda .deb
  • add it to your system
  • don’t install cuda
  • instead, run sudo apt install cuda-toolkit-10-0

If you run into trouble, please run as root and attach the resulting .gz file to your post. Hovering the mouse over an existing post of yours will reveal a paperclip icon.
