Best Procedure for Installing Newer Nvidia Drivers?


Sep 9, 2020
Does anyone have a documented best practice procedure for installing newer nvidia drivers in Proxmox (7.4)? If I understand correctly, running the following command will only install the latest "supported" driver which is 470.129.06.

apt install nvidia-driver

Previously I've installed the drivers via the NVIDIA*.run but that's preventing me from using tools like nvtop.

what you want to do?

1. direct passthrough 1physical gpu to 1vm?
2. use gpu on pve host?
3. separate gpu to vgpu and then pass to vm?
