Installing and Updating the Software

Installing the Software

To install the software on a fresh DGX system, see the DGX Software for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 - Installation Guide or the DGX Software for CentOS - Installation Guide.

Updating the Software

To update your DGX system to the latest version from a previous version, do the following.

  1. Enable the R450 repository to install the R450 related packages.

    The step is required for DGX A100 and DGX Station A100 but optional for other DGX platforms. If you have already enabled the R450 respository in a previous update, then you do not need to do it again.

    When performing the update in step 3, the package manager picks up the R450 related packages provided in the R450 repository along with any other updated packages in the R418 repository.
    • 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. (Optional) Enable the R470 repository to install the R470 related packages.

    If you have already enabled the R470 respository in a previous update, then you do not need to do it again.

    When performing the update in step 3, the package manager picks up the R470 related packages provided in the R470 repository along with any other updated packages in the R418 repository.
    • 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
      baseurl=https://international.download.nvidia.com/dgx/repos/rhel7-r470-cuda11-4/
      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-r470-cuda11-4
  3. Perform the update.
    sudo yum update
