I have a server with 3 GPU NVIDIA P100 with Centos 7 installed with gnome desktop environment.
I tried installing the driver for P100 boards, latest version being 375.20 (downloaded from nvidia.com)
First error encountered was: "Failed to run /usr/sbin/dkms build -m nvidia -v 375.20 -k 3.10.0-862.14.4.el7.x86_64
Second error: Failed to install the kernel module through DKMS
Then I tried to install the driver without DKMS support but I get another error:
An error occurred while performing the step “Building kernel modules” and the installation is aborted.
Now, the gnome desktop isn’t working/logging in, saying it encountered an error and I need to log out, but it tries again to log in and I am in a loop there.
IMPORTANT: my VGA monitor is connected on the mainboard of the server, the GPU are to be used only for computing (bitcoin mining for example).
I am able to access the command line (single user boot option), but don’t know what else to do from this point.
