Intel for display, NVIDIA for computing

This guide will show you how to use Intel graphics for rendering display and NVIDIA graphics for CUDA computing on Ubuntu 18.04 / 20.04 desktop.

I made this work on an ordinary gaming PC with two graphics devices, an Intel UHD Graphics 630 plus an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Both of them can be shown via lspci | grep VGA.

Compile and run Caffe on Ubuntu 15.10

Ubuntu 15.10 have been released for a couple of days. It is a bleeding-edge system coming with Linux kernel 4.2 and GCC 5. However, compiling and running Caffe on this new system is no longer as smooth as on earlier versions. I have done some research related to this issue and finally find a way out. I summarize it here in this short tutorial and I hope more people and enjoy this new system without breaking their works.

Install NVIDIA Driver

The latest NVIDIA driver is officially included in Ubuntu 15.10 repositories. One can install it directly via apt-get.

sudo apt-get install nvidia-352-updates nvidia-modprobe

The nvidia-modprobe utility is used to load NVIDIA kernel modules and create NVIDIA character device files automatically everytime your machine boots up.

Reboot your machine and verify everything works by issuing nvidia-smi or running deviceQuery in CUDA samples.
