Paperspace gradient: NVIDIA driver warning


I just setup my notebook on Paperspace Gradient, and am seeing the following error msg:

# !pip install -Uqq fastbook
import fastbook

Warning msg:
/opt/conda/envs/fastai/lib/python3.8/site-packages/torch/cuda/ UserWarning: CUDA initialization: The NVIDIA driver on your system is too old (found version 10010). Please update your GPU driver by downloading and installing a new version from the URL: Alternatively, go to: to install a PyTorch version that has been compiled with your version of the CUDA driver. (Triggered internally at /opt/conda/conda-bld/pytorch_1603729096996/work/c10/cuda/CUDAFunctions.cpp:100.) return torch._C._cuda_getDeviceCount() > 0

Is there a way for me to update the driver, do I need to update it?

Same problem for me. It worked just fine a few days ago, but in the past 2 days I have been getting the same error message.

FYI, I deleted the Notebook from my Paperspace Gradient account and set up a new one which resolved the issue.

I solved it like this: Just choose another server. The paid ones (typically the expensive ones like 0.78$/hour, etc.) work for me, as they always have everything (correct GPU, drivers, etc.) installed.

I should try that, as I created this notebook just a day or two ago. I had an older notebook prior to that, but when I did a conda update on that, it has stopped working altogether and so I created this new notebook.

I have not given that a try yet. I will try to update the drivers on this machine and see if it helps.

I just started up my machine and ran the same notebook as yesterday and no warnings (I used free P5000 machine). Looks like the Paperspace notebook drivers have been updated. Thank you FastAI team!
