I want to compile OpenCV with CUDA support but first I need to install NVIDIA drivers. So my question is:
- Based on this thread, some people seem to have problems with disabling nouveau? And Ubuntu GUI might have weird problems? Is disabling nouveau safe/recommended?
- My laptop has an Intel integrated card with an NVIDIA GPU. Does disabling nouveau mean that it will use the GPU constantly, even to render the desktop?
- Is it possible to switch to NVIDIA drivers only when needed? Such as when using OpenCV with CUDA support?
