I saw other answers but it didn't help much. Here is how I did it.

You need to download all three files from Nvidia Developer site. https://developer.nvidia.com/rdp/cudnn-download

image showing files that you need to download

but problem is that you need to wget this files. Well, you can do it from here: http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/machine-learning/repos/ubuntu1604/x86_64/

Use Ctrl+F to search for exact file names which you can get from links from Nvidia Developer site.

That ftp site doesn't have DOC .deb file (last one - libcudnn7-doc_7.1.3.16-1+cuda9.1_amd64.deb). You can download it from here: http://apt.cs.uchicago.edu/pool/main/ c/cudnn/ libcudnn7-doc_7.1.3.16-1+cuda9.1_amd64.deb

Thank you University of Chicago :).

After that it's just matter of following installation guide from https://docs.nvidia.com/deeplearning/sdk/cudnn-install/index.html:

From directory where you just downloaded those 3 files containing cuDNN install the runtime libraries, for example:

sudo dpkg -i libcudnn7_7.0.3.11-1+cuda9.0_amd64.deb

Install the developer library, for example:

sudo dpkg -i libcudnn7-dev_7.0.3.11-1+cuda9.0_amd64.deb

Install the code samples and the cuDNN Library User Guide, for example:

sudo dpkg -i libcudnn7-doc_7.0.3.11-1+cuda9.0_amd64.deb

Use your own main, dev and doc files instead of those in examples.

  • If you saw other answers, why didn't you add your answer to the corresponding question? Instead you posted this as a question, which does not make much sense unfortunately. May 2, 2018 at 17:30
  • This is for Ubuntu server, you need to wget files. My rep is 1 - I cannot do anything there.. :)

  • I don't mind if you copy it there. That would make more sense, I agree.

  • You could copy your text and post it as an answer to a question about installing cudnn. It would help more people this way. May 2, 2018 at 17:39
  • I wanted to do that. I have reputation 1 - I'm not allowed.
