NVIDIA
GRID K2 for non-virtualized Linux server
Hi, I'm having trouble getting K2 and Xorg to communicate properly. The environment: - HP Proliant DL380 Gen9 server - Matrox G200EH onboard - Nvidia GRID K2 - No physical displays connected (only physical connection is to the Matrox, all configuration done through iLO) - Linux RHEL 6.7 (Linux RHEL 7 also tested with no luck) Steps done: 1) Blacklisted nouveau and successfully installed Nvidia proprietary driver (both 352.41 production and 358.09 beta tested, same result) 2) Allowed Nvidia installer to create xorg.conf 3) startx -> Error, no devices detected 4) Re-ran configuration utility with extra flag: nvidia-xconfig --enable-all-gpus 5) startx -> Error, no screens detected (no other errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, devices i.e. 2 GPUs properly detected now with the added BusID options) 6) Re-ran configuration utility with additional flag: nvidia-xconfig --enable-all-gpus --allow-empty-initial-configuration 7) startx -> No errors, but a black screen. /var/log/Xorg.0.log doesn't show any visible problems, Xorg seems to be happy But, "nvidia-settings" from command line still pops-up the NVIDIA X Server Settings window and tells me that "You do not appear to be uisng the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file and restart the X server". I can see the same if I createa a VNC server and connect to it using a VNC viewer. A desktop is shown fine, but running glxgears or nvidia-settings will result in errors telling me that the Nvidia driver is not loaded. Is GRID K2 supposed to work at all in a non-virtualized environment? I'm more than happy to provide all additional information needed. Best regards, PM
Hi,

I'm having trouble getting K2 and Xorg to communicate properly.

The environment:

- HP Proliant DL380 Gen9 server
- Matrox G200EH onboard
- Nvidia GRID K2
- No physical displays connected (only physical connection is to the Matrox, all configuration done through iLO)
- Linux RHEL 6.7 (Linux RHEL 7 also tested with no luck)

Steps done:

1) Blacklisted nouveau and successfully installed Nvidia proprietary driver (both 352.41 production and 358.09 beta tested, same result)
2) Allowed Nvidia installer to create xorg.conf
3) startx -> Error, no devices detected
4) Re-ran configuration utility with extra flag: nvidia-xconfig --enable-all-gpus
5) startx -> Error, no screens detected (no other errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, devices i.e. 2 GPUs properly detected now with the added BusID options)
6) Re-ran configuration utility with additional flag: nvidia-xconfig --enable-all-gpus --allow-empty-initial-configuration
7) startx -> No errors, but a black screen. /var/log/Xorg.0.log doesn't show any visible problems, Xorg seems to be happy

But, "nvidia-settings" from command line still pops-up the NVIDIA X Server Settings window and tells me that "You do not appear to be uisng the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file and restart the X server".

I can see the same if I createa a VNC server and connect to it using a VNC viewer. A desktop is shown fine, but running glxgears or nvidia-settings will result in errors telling me that the Nvidia driver is not loaded.

Is GRID K2 supposed to work at all in a non-virtualized environment? I'm more than happy to provide all additional information needed.

Best regards,
