Pls help. Thank you

The nvidia driver doesn’t like your board.
NVRM: GPU 0000:01:00.0: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x26:0x56:1429)
Driver 460, 470.54-470.82 should work. Don’t know whether using the open source kernel modules of 515 work.

Hi Generix,

thank you for the hint, after some re-installation loops and solving version incompatibility, driver version 460 works finally.

However i am very interested. How can i find out which driver version is compatible with my board? Is there a matching table like for cuda/driver?

This is a known and recurring bug in the nvidia driver, the known working versions list is based on reports from other users.
