Llvmpipe is used as OpenGL render instead of NVIDIA. Cannot switch to NVIDIA GPU

I’m encountering an issue with my Linux server, which boasts 2 * A10 GPUs and runs on Redhat 8.7. I’ve already disabled nouveau. However, despite having the NVIDIA GPU drivers installed (version 460.73.01), the system defaults to using llvmpipe for graphics rendering, completely overlooking the available NVIDIA GPUs.

I’ve attempted various troubleshooting steps, including running nvidia-xconfig and upgrading the drivers to version 550.54.14. Unfortunately, neither of these attempts yielded a solution.

Attached is the nvidia-bug-report file for your reference.

I’m reaching out for assistance after struggling with this issue for a week. Any guidance or insights you can offer would be immensely appreciated. Thank you sincerely for your help and support in advance.

It looks like you have two X servers running: :0, which is running on one of the A10s, and :1 which is using an ASPEED graphics device, which is typically a BMC on server systems.

How are you connecting to this system? Do you get NVIDIA OpenGL if you use DISPLAY=:0 rather than DISPLAY=:1?
