Failed to initialize NVML: Driver/library version mismatch


I’m having this problem in our machine:
Failed to initialize NVML: Driver/library version mismatch

Here’s our folder structure:

anie@arthur1:~$ ls /usr/local | grep cuda

Here’s the lib64 for cuda folder:

anie@arthur1:~$ ls /usr/local/cuda/lib64
libcublas_device.a       libnvgraph_static.a       libcusolver_static.a  libcufft_static.a
libcudadevrt.a      libcusparse_static.a        libcufftw_static.a   
libcudart_static.a     libnppc_static.a          libculibos.a       libnpps_static.a      stubs        libcurand_static.a          libnppi_static.a

I’m wondering if you guys have encountered this problem before, and what’s the best way to fix it…(there are many solutions all over the internet…)

OK, first step, can you perform a hard reboot on your machine?

sudo reboot

If that doesn’t work, see here: CUDA NVIDIA NVML Driver/Library version mismatch - update-initramfs -u not working - old kernel version - Technical Help - DeepTalk - Deep Learning Community

Hi Stephen, the simple solution worked! Thank you!
