I have installed
video-nvidia and it has provided me with nvidia drivers version 455.45.01 which I have found using
Now looking at table 2 in the official Nvidia CUDA compatibility table here in
https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-toolkit-release-notes/index.html (It said I cant include links - maybe because I am new to the forum?? so I just dropped the text of the link), it seems that I need to get
CUDA 11.1 which is not available in pacman or aur.
aur currently holds
11.0 as the highest version and pacman has already bumped up to
11.2 (Honestly, I dont understand why manjaro did this bump even - you are literally ending up with a incompatible driver configuration.)
I am just starting out with CUDA and I am setting this up for about a month now and this recent bump to
11.2 is just messing things up.
Can someone please tell me what is a configuration with the current available packages in manjaro - can I run a CUDA 11.0 alongwith the nvidia 455.45.01 drivers? (I do not understand the configuration table so, if my understanding that only the driver version ranges in between will work with a cuda version, please correct me)
I have been at this over a month and recent changes have complicated things way more - I request you all to help (Manjaro please help this poor soul)
