I have followed the guide on GCP below with Ubuntu 18 and 20 ( have also tried Ubuntu Lite , Debian and Centos 7 ):
Unfortunately, after completing the lengthy install I get this:
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running
Have tried installing via the script and via the direct downloads from Nvidia site for Cuda 10. Ready to pull my hair out if that helps! I don't understand how a company that builds a bazillion gpu's can't make the installation process robust?
