I'm trying to install the nvidia driver on an AsRock with a ZOTAC GEFORCE GRAPHICS CARD.
Following these instructions:
Install CUDA 9.0 and cuDNN 7.0 for TensorFlow/PyTorch (GPU) on Ubuntu 16.04
I tried running this:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-384 nvidia-modprobe
The install goes smoothly but I am never able to login to the ubuntu desktop gui after doing so. It just keeps asking me for my password over and over again.
I've tried shutting down X with Ctrl+Alt+F1
sudo service lightdm stop sudo init 3 sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo apt-get install nvidia-384 nvidia-modprobe
to no avail. I am not able to login to the desktop gui after installing.
I tried installing NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-367.44.run instead, but get lots of error. I'd like to have that apt-get install work if possible.
