Hi Everyone,I am about to loose my mind !
I installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. My computer has an integrated Intel VGA and a GPU which is Nvidia GTX 1070. As you can predict, I installed the latest Nvidia GPU driver (390.48) and CUDA 9.1 respectively. I also did vice versa. However both sequences ended up with problem. (I applied almost 10 methods from the internet, especially NVIDIA CUDA installation guide for Linux) Here are the steps that I applied:
1) I installed Nvidia GPU driver version of 390.48 from nvidia.com. According to https://gist.github.com/wangruohui/df039f0dc434d6486f5d4d098aa52d07?_pjax=%23gist-pjax-container (via run file). That installation was completed without any problem and I was able to use my GPU. Afterwards, I installed CUDA 9.1 regarding https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-installation-guide-linux/index.html. However, after installation of CUDA, I got a few problems which are;
By the way, I applied this installation sequence a few times.So, the problems that I indicated below are the result of trials. (for each trial, I always formatted the disk and reinstalled Ubuntu)
- System installation failed because of nvidia driver version of 387 although I installed version of 390.
- After Installation of Cuda 9.1 after installing gpu driver, driver version of 390.48 reverted to 388.11.
- and so on…
Again, I reinstalled Ubuntu by formatting and deleting everything in it.
2) I installed Cuda 9.1 and GPU driver version of 390.48 respectively (vice versa of above). This time, again, during the installation of CUDA 9.1, I got the error of fail of nvidia driver installation. So, I installed Nvidia driver version of 390.48 by removing pre-installed nvidia files and things. Still I got nothing except fails.
Please give some advices or solution for this problem. I need to install GPU driver 390.48 and CUDA 9.1. By the way, I have almost tried every solution on the internet, including Nvidia Guides. Where am i doing wrong ?
