Can someone tell me is sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall the same as three following commands? Do they do the same job?

sudo apt install libnvidia-common-470
sudo apt install libnvidia-gl-470
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-470

After installing this I was getting the following (non-fatal) warning

>>> import tensorflow as tf
>>> print("Num GPUs Available: ", len(tf.config.list_physical_devices('GPU')))

I resolved it by following tensorflow/tensorflow#53184
for a in /sys/bus/pci/devices/*; do echo 0 | sudo tee -a $a/numa_node; done

Thanks for nice repo
I have installed using your instruction. but when type nvidia-smi it shows 11.5. Why, how can I install 11.2?

Works great up till cuDNN, and then I get the following

I want to install CUDA 11.3 or higher version on Ubuntu 18.04 (which is installed using a Virtual Machine). Which instructions should I follow?

Thanks for nice repo I have installed using your instruction. but when type nvidia-smi it shows 11.5. Why, how can I install 11.2?

I had to implement the end of this tutorial:
https://towardsdatascience.com/installing-multiple-cuda-cudnn-versions-in-ubuntu-fcb6aa5194e2

I used his edit of bash so tensorflow (in my case) can choose what cuda toolkit use, and it worked.

Thank you very much @Mahedi-61, much appreciated

RTX 3090 requires driver version of 515 (not 470).

# install nvidia driver with dependencies
sudo apt install libnvidia-common-515
sudo apt install libnvidia-gl-515
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-515

I am wondering whether these work for installing cuda 11.3 on ubuntu 22.04 also?

Will it work for nvidia-server on ubuntu 20.04 server ?

install nvidia driver with dependencies

sudo apt install libnvidia-common-470-server
sudo apt install libnvidia-gl-470-server
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-470-server

@saravananpsg It's works for server. I tested. I also changed 470 to 515 to support 3090.

I also had to change the version from 470 to 515 for a 1070 TI.

sudo apt install libnvidia-common-515
sudo apt install libnvidia-gl-515
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-515

After installing, if nvidia-smi gives a kernel/client version mismatch error, reboot.

Thank you verry much you just forgotten a star character after cudnn here :
sudo cp -P cuda/include/cudnn*.h /usr/local/cuda-11.3/include

Verry important because else an error can be encountered while compiling for example pytorch "cudnn_version.h" not found.
