And after so long, here I’m…
I got this bank holidays to start learning about Machine Learning (but this will be another topic).
This post is mainly to show my massive failure of installing cuda drivers and cudnn libraries in my Linux Mint. I mainly failed and broke all my video configurations with that :( Meanwhile, looking on the internet I saw that Ubuntu was recommended for this, as it has many drivers available. So after I screwed up everything, I decided to install Ubuntu, and here we go formatting the system and installing everything again. When trying to install the NVIDIA Driver 375
apt show nvidia-375, it failed miserably, screwing up my windows manager. After fighting with
lightdm and trying
gdm I gave up and decided to come back to Mint, and take the opportunity to install the newest version, 18.01 Cinnamon.
And here we go again, installing all the programs. So I got tired of it and I decided to create a script to do it, just in case I screw it up again, what I might do next time I try to install those drivers again. Obviously it’s still a simple script, but the idea is to add everything I still in my computer, so I will try to keep it as up to date as possible. You can find the repo here. To install everything you just need to run the following line in your terminal (it will ask the root password)
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/diegoluiz/mint-setup/master/script.sh | bash -E -
So, I hope soon I will be posting about my machine learning thoughts…
