I've been working on installing CUDA for TensorFlow usage.
I realized that cuda-9.0 has been just released today, and I accidentally downloaded and dpkged it, and installed it on my machine.
I realized that cuda-9.0 is not yet compatible with TensorFlow so I had to uninstall it with:
sudo apt autoremove cuda
Which did remove everything, but now whenever I try to install cuda-8.0, after downloading and
dpkging, it prompts me to install cuda-9.0 instead.
Now I know I can work around this with:
sudo apt-get install cuda-8-0
But I also need to install the patch, which can't be done this way.
I've been trying many methods to resolve this issue:
sudo apt-get remove cuda-9-0-blablal
- Removing the apt-key of cuda-9 with:
apt-key del [KEY]
But none of these really worked.
Can someone help me out?
Right after posting this, I figured out the answer, which turned out to be simple.
I'm leaving it for others:
I was able to solve it simply, by removing cuda-9 stuff from
And now I have another problem which is after
sudo dpkg -i cuda-8-0-blabla
none of it appears on
