I couldn’t find any of this online. Most tutorials are about how to use discrete or integrated grahpic card, not how to choose it per application.
I have installed latest drivers for Linux Mint 18.2 following this link https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads and choosing x86_64 -> Ubuntu -> 16.04 -> local deb
I followed all the instructions. I didn’t install the patch because there are no instructions.
Then I read and followed this:
I did add required directory to path and it worked, but after restart it doesn’t.
Prime has the most confusing settings I’ve ever seen.
I need to be able to work on this computer while it’s mining ethereum, so what I need to accomplish is for entire system to use integrated graphic card and apps to use the nvidia card.
I really do not understand what’s required to do so in NVIDIA X Server Settings.
When I click on Rules tab and + I get add new rule dialog.
It asks for:
- Process Name - matches this string.
- Profile Name
I guess process name is just file name right which is ethdcrminer64?
But how to create a profile? Profile has all kinds of fields I don’t understand.
I thought profile is going to allow me to just choose the grahpic card I want. But instead it asks for all of this: Key, Expected Type, Current Type, Value.
I just want to tell mining apps to use nvidia card. How to accomplish that?
