Trying to get headless setup working on Linux Mint 18.1 with GeForce 1060 GTX

Hi

I’m trying to get a GeForce 1060 GTX graphics card working (properly) on Linux Mint 18.1.

After (much effort!) I have installed the 375.26 driver and nvidia-modprobe utilities using debian and appear to have a system that is almost working: I want to use the motherboard onboard graphics for display and the GPU for compute purposes only.

Alomst everything seems to be working – I can compile and run code – unless that code attempts to probe the device e.g. using the function checkCudaErrors

However, I get the following

nvidia-smi
No devices were found

./deviceQuery
./deviceQuery Starting…

CUDA Device Query (Runtime API) version (CUDART static linking)

cudaGetDeviceCount returned 38
-> no CUDA-capable device is detected
Result = FAIL

I’ve done loads of research around this issue and can’t find anything that fixes it.

My xorg log file is below. In my BIOS (gigabyte Z170 skylake motherboard), I am initialising using integrated graphics. If I attempt to initialise via PCIE1 (the graphics card) - which was my initial idea, then I get a blank screen I only seem to be able to resolve by removing the graphics card and resetting the BIOS.

Any help would be VERY gratefully received!

Thanks!

Does this not indicate that the kernel module was not loaded? Does

lsmod | grep nvidia

return anything?

Hi Thanks for the reply. This is the really weird thing:

lsmod | grep nvidia

returns

nvidia_drm 53248 0
nvidia_modeset 790528 1 nvidia_drm
nvidia 12144640 1 nvidia_modeset
drm_kms_helper 155648 2 i915_bpo,nvidia_drm
drm 364544 6 i915_bpo,drm_kms_helper,nvidia_drm

and

lsmod | grep nouveau

returns nothing.

PS I also see

lspci | grep VGA

What about xorg.conf?

… and some additional information (do I need to worry about the last?):

I don’t understand how the nouveau driver gets involved. Could it perhaps be that the kernel module and the X module are out of sync? The Xorg.0.log does contain

[ 8.590] (EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)

Hattne, many thanks for your interest and time in looking at this issue, I have now solved it by replacing the graphics card. It appears to have been faulty.
