Hi, I am not able to properly install the nvidia drivers 390.30 + cuda 9.1 on a machine with Titan V and Geforce 1080.
The machine is running Ubuntu 16.04 with kernel 4.4.0-116-generic.
I have attempted the installation many times now
before each installation, I ran
sudo apt purge nvidia*
sudo apt purge cuda*
however, the drivers were never installed correctly.
I am using the network .deb installer.
first, I install the package nvidia-390, then reboot.
then I install cuda-9-1
nvidia-smi reports: NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
sudo modprobe nvidia reports: modprobe: ERROR: could not insert ‘nvidia_390’: Exec format error
The linux headers are installed correctly: linux-headers-4.4.0-116-generic is already the newest version (4.4.0-116.140).
Could somebody tell me how to fix this?
