Is it possible that CUDNN is properly installed if I don't have mnistCUDA or anything else in the cuda_samples_v8 folder?

I do not have anything beside NVIDIA_SLA_cuDNN_Support.txt in the cudnn_samples_v8 folder. Given that the folder exists, I am willing to believe that cudnn is installed properly. If it is not, then why is the folder there? I have searched a lot for the standalone samples download, but i cannot find it anywhere on the internet. I am using Ubuntu 22.04,
cuda 11.7,
cudnn and I installed cudnn through the ubuntu network installation.
Could it be due to the fact that I only have cuda toolkit 11.7, but there is cuda11.8 in the version of cudnn I’m using?
Here’s the nvidia-smi:

Could removing everything cudnn related and installing it from the tar file help me?

Hi ,
There are multiple ways cudnn can be installed.
You may want to validate your installation steps and compatibility matrix for cudnn.
Please let us know if the issue still persist.



I am unfortunately unable to help, but I was wondering whether you were able to solve this issue. If you did, please post the solution.
