This is how I set up my headless home server with a Jupyter Lab Docker container with an Nvidia GPU runtime. Login is handled by a GitHub OAuth application.
Nvidia drivers and the container runtime permalink First, check here (replacing the CUDA version in the URL with your own) to see which Nvidia drivers you need for the CUDA toolkit version you want. I’m using CUDA 11.4.2, which means I need at least driver version 470.Read more
