Nvidia-smi showing different cuda version after installation

I have installed cuda-9-2 but after installation once I run nvidia-smi it is showing cuda 11. Please check below screenshot. I have verified cuda-9-2 in /usr/local and its present there. Also, nvcc is confirming the same.

/usr/local/cuda-9.2/bin/nvcc --version

I have only one CUDA installed, so not sure if that stack answers my question or not…
Will check, Thanks!

Nobody is suggesting you have more than one CUDA installed and the answer there does not assume that.

You have a GPU driver installed that supports driver API activity up through CUDA 11.4
You have a CUDA toolkit installed that supports CUDA 9.2.

The answer on SO explains how that is possible. And why it is probably OK.

In any event, I don’t see that you have asked a question here or on SO.

It is simply a fact that nvidia-smi can show a “different CUDA version” from the one that is reported by nvcc. They are reporting two different things.

Thanks Robert. I was Just acknowledging your last comment there. I had read that and I am clear now. Thank you for the support.
