Updating the Software and Moving to a Later Driver Release Package

To install a later driver release package, enable the appropriate repository before issuing sudo yum update as follows.

  1. To install the R450-related packages, enable the R450 repository as follows.
    Note: If you have already enabled the R450 respository in a previous update, then you do not need to do it again.
    • Either edit /etc/yum.repos.d/nvidia-dgx-7.repo and set enabled=1,
      [nvidia-dgx-7-r450-cuda11-0] 
      name=NVIDIA DGX EL7 R450-CUDA11-0
      baseurl=https://international.download.nvidia.com/dgx/repos/rhel7-r450-cuda11-0/
      enabled=1
      gpgcheck=1
      gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-dgx-cosmos-support
       
    • Or, (if you have the yum-utils package installed), issue the following.
      sudo yum-config-manager --enable nvidia-dgx-7-r450-cuda11-0
  2. To install the R470-related packages, follow the instructions in Step 1 if the R450 repository has not aleady been enabled, then enable the R470 repository as follows.
    Note: If you have already enabled the R470 respository in a previous update, then you do not need to do it again.
    • Either edit /etc/yum.repos.d/nvidia-dgx-7.repo and set enabled=1,
      [nvidia-dgx-7-r470-cuda11-4]
      name=NVIDIA DGX EL7 R470-CUDA11-4
