In the past, installing CUDA onto Ubuntu Servers, used in mining, was a large undertaking. With the latest release of Ubuntu, everything has changed. Thankfully. Now we are able to easily go through the steps of installing cuda on ubuntu server 20.04. The steps below outline what you will need to do to make this work. I have had success installing either before, or after, I already have the 1080ti drivers on the system. It may not be the same in the future, but as of this writing today, all you have to do are the few steps below.
Open a Terminal
apt install nvidia-cuda-toolkit
Cuda will now run the installation. It will take a while, so sit tight. Once it is done installing cuda on ubuntu server 20.04…you are done. Enjoy!
