I have been trying to get an S870 up and running for a few hours now. I installed the drivers from the CD and the display/video card work fine. When I connect the Tesla, I can’t start X. I just get a blank screen.
Also, the output from “ls /dev/nv*” is just “/dev/nvram” which doesn’t look right.
The Xorg output and the nvidia bug report output are dense. What should I be looking for? Also, whenever I startx, the computer locks up and I have to do a hard reset. This makes me not really want to guess-and-check. nvidia_bug_report.txt (168 KB)
If the system has locking up when starting X, then this is likely not a CUDA bug.
According to your bug report, you’re using the ‘nv’ X driver, and not the nvidia X driver, and I don’t see any indication that X was configured to use the nvidia X driver (or to use the cards you installed in the system). Is that the actual configuration that you’re using when the system hangs?
Other than installing the drivers from the CD, what have you done to configure this system to use CUDA and/or the nvidia X driver?
