Nvidia GTX-970 and cuda



nvidia driver

Installing: ubuntu nvidia install using repo launchpad
To remove a ppa repo

Beware: before an upgrade

  sudo ppa-purge xorg-edgers

is required!! I.e. remove xorg-edgers completely and afterwards add it again:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install nvidia-364
  sudo apt-get install ppa-purge

Installing: cuda install or here.
The first page (somewhat down) gives:

  sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1404_6.5-14_amd64.deb
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install cuda
  echo 'export PATH=/usr/local/cuda-6.5/bin:$PATH #CUDA' >> ~/.bashrc

Also with cuda it seems best to uninstall before an update or upgrade

For GTX-970 the packages are here

Post Install instructions.
