Trying to download latest long lived branch of Linux 86_64 driver, where does download save it to? Can't find it after download to Windows system connected to the net.

Please advise, trying to download latest long lived branch for Linux x86_64, but clicking save button seems to not do much. Don’t know where it downloads to, nothing in my Downloads folder on the Windows system I am using to connect to the NVIDIA website.

Is there a “wget” command string to download the latest long lived branch directly to a Linux system connected to the net?

I also need to download the compatible CUDA for Linux x86_64.

Thanks.

Hi Bruce,

There are direct links to the .run packages in the driver release announcement posts. You can find links to the latest ones from https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/533434/linux/current-graphics-driver-releases/

Someone mentioned a file, NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-440.64.run does anyone have a “wget” command string to pull that down to my Linux workstation?

Also need help getting CUDA installable.

Thanks.

wget https://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/440.64/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-440.64.run

Edit: Found it, there are instructions on how to download the CUDA installer using wget from here, once you select the platform and format you want it in: https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads

Thanks Aaron, that worked fine after I supplied --no-certificate-check.

May I ask for another wget to obtain the compatible CUDA package for that latest long lived branch for X86_64 ?

Much obliged,
Bruce Cook

Thanks, I have installed NVIDIA driver.

Also downloaded the run script for CUDA, got this error when running, please advise:

Tried changing to non-graphics mode and running the CUDA script again, got this:
