Frequently Asked Questions

Administrators of on-premises (on-prem) deployments of Deepgram products sometimes encounter the following issues.

Problems installing the NVIDIA drivers

Sometimes loaded kernel modules can interfere with the installation of the NVIDIA drivers. To correct this issue, try unloading nouveau drivers:

sudo rmmod nouveau

Failed to find any CUDA devices

  1. Ensure that NVIDIA drivers are installed:


    If not, install them before proceeding.

  2. Ensure that nvidia-docker is installed:

    docker run --runtime=nvidia --rm nvidia/cuda:9.0-base nvidia-smi

    If not, install it before proceeding.

  3. If you have made changes to NVIDIA drivers, restart Docker:

    sudo systemctl restart docker
