My code is having problems with the latest CUDA release (10.1.243) and I therefore want to downgrade back to 10.1.168. The problem I am having doing this is indeed similar to a a previous post (https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1030495/install-a-specific-cuda-version-for-ubuntu-16-04/), yet does not seem to work here.
What I am generally trying to do is uninstall all existing packages, then download the old deb file and reinstall the old version. The problem is that even after the following steps (especially line 10), Ubuntu keeps installing the 10.1.243 version instead of 10.1.168.
My steps are the follwing:
sudo apt-get --purge -y remove 'cuda*' sudo apt-get --purge -y remove 'nvidia*' sudo apt autoremove -y sudo apt-get clean reboot sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1804_10.1.168-1_amd64.deb sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1804/x86_64/7fa2af80.pub sudo apt-get install cuda-10-1=10.1.168-1
Is there something else I have to do to make Ubuntu install that specific version or am I missing something else? Thanks for your help!
