Depending on the GPU you have, you may want to downgrade to driver 384.x, which will allow the containers to use “compatibility mode”.

Release 384.xx if your hardware is Tesla V100, Tesla P4, Tesla P40, or Tesla P100.

But, in the long term, highly recommend you to update to latest driver.

@NVES thanks for your reply, but I can not find the official documents about how to turn on the compatibility mode.
Besides, I successfully install Nvidia driver 410 in my server Centos7.4, so I modify my question.


compatibility mode is automatically detected and entered by the container entry script. It is not something you can manually trigger.

@NVES Wow, I got it. Thank you very much~
