Nvidia freeze or downgrade driver version

Hi. I want to downgrade nvidia driver version or at least freeze it because now I have CUDA 12.0 but I need to run pytorch which only supports 11.7 and 11.8. I tried to find how to do this in wiki but I couldn’t find how to do it.

Hi @samoed,

Please note that this will result in a partially updated, unsupported state and isn’t really recommended, so continue at own risk.

Please see


Are you sure that it doesn’t work? Since a few versions, Cuda is supposed to be backwards-compatible.

Now it seems to work, but I tried a week ago, there was error. In pytorch have some issues with cuda 12, that I thought they might be critical. and I didn’t want to compile from sources, as the forum advised.
