I’m working on a Dell Precision 7730 mobile workstation powered by a Quadro P5200. Company also has XPS 15 9560s. On the Precision, I’m having troubles with CUDA.
First, the installation from the CUDA 10.0.130 .deb isn’t working, because Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS stays blocked on launching GDM (I think) after a reboot. Hitting CTRL + ALT + F2/F3/F4, the tty terminal keeps flickering with the [OK] [OK] services screen. And it is impossible to login on the tty terminal until the flickering stops.
Second, it seems to work when installing only the toolkit and manually installing 410.93 from a .run file. Maybe it was just luck though, I’m still investigating.
Finally and this is the biggest problem, whatever version of CUDA and drivers I use (CUDA 10, 410.93, CUDA 9, 390.XX) our app that uses CUDA keeps freezing the whole OS in the CUDA part it seems. The only solution is to hard reset the computer.
We have no problems with same Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS and CUDA 10.0.130 .deb installed on the XPS 15 9560s.
