Nvidia-smi no recognize driver in rhel8 ppc64le



NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

follow the instructions carefully in the CUDA linux install guide. Note the sections especially where there are power9-specific setup instructions such as here.

I’m not suggesting that is the only relevant section. Start at the beginning of the guide, read the entire guide, and follow the instructions carefully.

I’ve hit what I believe to be a similar issue (but on CentOS Stream 8) which is documented at: Nvidia driver (545.23.08) core dump on CentOS 8 Stream ppc64le - #3 by samu_gabor

Not sure if this is because I’m on Stream rather than RHEL 8. I’ve provided as much information as I could collect in the above.
