I have found some Linux software that uses CUDA to do calculations on the GPUs. The software is available as binaries and as source code.
I notice that the CUDA Toolkit is very fussy about which Ubuntu version and which kernel I would need, the first question I have is: Do I need the toolkit to run software that uses CUDA if I have the binaries?
If I DO need the toolkit software, is there an .iso installation file I can get that has everything setup already? Because the current Ubuntu server version 18.04.3 i think has kernel 5.0 but the toolkit says it needs kernel 4.15.0, so what am I meant to do, downgrade the kernel somehow? It’s all a pain. I need to run Ubuntu 18.04, that is my only requirement, the GPUs are 2080ti cards.
