I am using Ubuntu 16 and my nvidia-smi stopped working suddenly which was working absolutely fine for months. I have tried so many commands but I am unable to install.
Can you reboot the machine? If so, what do you get from nvidia-smi after rebooting?
Yes, I reboot 2,3 times but I have the same error.
It showing following error
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
I resolved the issue with following commands and reboot
sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get autoclean sudo rm -rf /usr/local/cuda*
Thank you so much!
Glad to hear your problem is solved.
