I’m trying to install the Tesla K40c in a HP Proliant DL380g9. HP confirmed it’s supported. I also have an onboard graphics card.
lspci |grep VGA 01:00.1 VGA compatible controller: Matrox Electronics Systems Ltd. MGA G200EH (rev 01)
When I perform a fresh clean install of ubuntu 14.04.3, X works fine. I’m installing the server and then running apt-get install ubuntu-desktop. All is fine after that( I can login via the gui) as soon as I install the driver for the tesla k40C, it breaks X. I get a login prompt but it just keeps taking me to the login prompt(The GUI is not fully loaded.) I’m also wondering why linux is reporting my Matrox card as unclaimed. when running lshw -C display , that’s before and after tesla driver install, yet X works ( I’m pretty certain UNCLAIMED means that a driver has not claimed it yet.)

I’m also a bit confused on what the difference is between the cuda__linux.run
file and the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-346.89.run file. Ultimately , want to use the onboard for X gui and the Tesla for Computing. Can someone kindly point me in the right direction.
I’ve tried the run method and the repo method
I’m also not seeing the /dev/Nvidia* in section 4.4. Device Node Verification
I do see them after going through the installation. I’ve ran the samples so I know cudo is working but it’s breaking my Xorg server
