Nvidia-smi - no devices were found - p620 - ubuntu 22.04

Thanks for the tip, I used apt install nvidia-driver-515 on baremetal ubuntu desktop 22.04 and I got nvidia-smi to actually work! This is great, first time I feel like I got somewhere, and at least I feel like my card isn’t dead.

So I tried to go back to the actual application I needed which was passthrough to esxi, tried installing the exact same distro, used the exact same install command and no devices were found

device is detected.

$ sudo lshw -C display

I realize there seems to be an issue with passthrough for virtualization and I got it working a few years ago, but recently i updated something and it broke and I’ve just been trying to to get it working again.

I’ve tried going through this thread but still get stuck with the same issue
