I'm installing Nvidia driver 450 on a 20.04 brand new server with no desktop environment (which I do not want to have).
(Context: final goal is to install cuda toolkit via Tensorflow Docker, and drivers are the only thing outta container).
When it comes to
apt install, turns out that both
nvidia-driver-450-server packages will carry a huge load of gnome-related stuff.
So I'm wondering if
nvidia-headless-450-server will suffice. Asking for both brokes apt, so my questions are
- what's the
-serversuffixed variant supposed to do? Official guide doesn't clarify much.
- is the headless metapackage containing the actual driver?
