I have problem installing the nvidia drivers for my GPU, Nvidia Tesla C2050. I have tried to use both the drivers from Nvidia and the drivers from Ubuntu
I have been advised to use the drivers from ubuntu so the latest thing I tried is the following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
What happend is that if I after a fresh installation of Ubuntu 12.04 tries to do
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-current-dev
I first get the message that it cannot be installed because it says something like: missing dependencies xorg-video-abi-11 and xserver-xorg-core
so I install them using
sudo apt-get install xorg-video-abi-11 xserver-xorg-core
then I use
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-current-dev sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo reboot
and now when I press
CTRL-ALT-F1 it is just black and the screen goes in sleeping mode or it is just a black screen with white dots on it.
I have tried for three days now to install nvidia correctly so that I can install CUDA later for my research.
I basically want CUDA to work without any problems, maybe I should just install CUDA directly using the NVIDIA-drivers?
Any help would be appreciated! For instance what drivers to use, ubuntus or Nvidia's.
