Problem installing CUDA on Fedora

I have in the past installed successfully CUDA 8 on Fedora 23 on a PC with Tesla K20c.

Now I am trying to do this again on another PC Tesla C2050 but I am running into problems during installation.

I am using the Tesla not as a graphics card (the Display is not connected to it) but for computation acceleration purposes.

I followed the instructions in

I remove the nouvea driver, install CUDA, and in the end I do:
[b]systemctl set-default


Then after reboot, the Fedora starts but gets stuck. It does not proceed into the graphical mode.

I can connect to the PC via ssh from another PC.

Here is the output from the command nvidia-installer -v |grep version:

nvidia-installer: version 367.48 (buildmeister@swio-display-x86-rhel47-05)

here is output from command uname -a:
6_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

here is the output of the command lspci |grep -E “VGA|3D”:
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF110GL [Tesla C2050 / C2075] (rev a1)
04:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV370 [Radeon X300]

Can anyone advise what is wrong?

Start over with a clean install of Fedora, where the GUI is working as you wish.
Use the runfile install method.
When you run the installer, pass the switch --no-opengl-libs

the necessity for this is documented in the linux install guide:

The quick start guide does not cover every possible situation.


that solved the problem
