I have Titan X in my system and recently updated my NVIDIA drivers using NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-352.79.run and cuda_7.5.7_rc_linux.run. I want to use my GPU for research purpose so I installed it without opengl:
sudo service lightdm stop sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-352.79.run --no-opengl-files sudo ./cuda_7.5.18_linux.run
But now whenever I try to use my GPU either through Torch7 (say: require ‘cunn’) or for any other system related application (say: nvidia-smi); my terminal freezes. I tried to uninstall and reinstall but now when I try to run the same above script, I get the error “Unable to load kernel module”
I performed the following steps for uninstalling and reinstalling.
sudo /usr/local/cuda-7.5/bin/uninstall_cuda_7.5.pl sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-* && apt-get autoremove
sudo service lightdm stop sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-352.79.run --no-opengl-files
So now I am not even able to complete my installation. Can anyone help me in finding a solution to this?
