kmod-nvidia, Bumblebee, CUDA

Post by parxos » 2018/07/20 09:34:27

Hi all,

I have an NVIDIA Optimus notebook with an integrated and a dedicated GPU. I installed the kmod-nvidia drivers from ELRepo together with Bumblebee from ElRepo which works great. However, I also would like to use CUDA. When I tried installing CUDA using the official Runfile from Nvidia, it told me that my graphics driver is not compatible with CUDA.

When I installed the NVIDIA graphics driver and CUDA together directly from Nvidia, cuda worked flawlessly, but then I couldn't boot into Gnome because Bumblebee from ELRepo apparently didn't work with the drivers directly from Nvidia.

Do you have any suggestions on how I could make this work?
