Installing CUDA on Ubuntu 16.04 using the repo


I found that cuda toolkit is available on the 16.04 repo, and installed it using apt-get.

‘sudo apt-get install nvidia-cuda-toolkit nvidia-cuda-dev’

I didn’t go for the run file or the deb file because it was only listaed as compatible for ubuntu 15.04. My problem is in installing the cuda compatible driver. I cant find a way to download/install the correct driver. What is the best way to get the correct driver installed? Is it in the repo, and I cant just find it?


Ubuntu 16.04 should be an officially supported version of CUDA for CUDA 8 RC.
