Hello. We ordered two Vector workstations that have windows pre-installed. However, we would like to have a linux distribution installed instead. We are leaning toward RHEL, but Ubuntu would work for us too. Is there a procedure to do something such as this?
It is pretty straight forward on Ubuntu.
- For workstations, go to https://ubuntu.com/tutorials/install-ubuntu-desktop#1-overview this takes you step-by-step through downloading, creating a USB image and installing Ubuntu.
- Then install Lambda Stack:
wget -nv -O- https://lambdalabs.com/install-lambda-stack.sh | sh - sudo reboot
If you are running RHEL, just follow RedHats instructions to install RHEL
(or using Rocky or Springdale for free alternatives). And install the NVIDIA Driver, etc.
It will depend on what version of RHEL:
# As root or with sudo yum install podman-docker gcc make kernel-devel yum-utils bash-completion yum-config-manager --add-repo http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/rhel8/x86_64/cuda-rhel8.repo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://nvidia.github.io/nvidia-docker/centos8/nvidia-docker.repo yum install -y epel-release yum install -y dkms yum module install -y nvidia-driver:latest-dkms yum install -y nvidia-container-toolkit reboot
