How To: Update the NVIDIA graphics drivers after a kernel update


If the Linux kernel is updated, this will break the Nvidia drivers on your AWS G2 instance which will require them to be recompiled. The easiest way to work-around this is to force a driver update in the bootstrap script of the cluster.

How To:

Add the following line to the bootstrap script of your cluster:

  • cd /usr/bin && nvidia-installer --force-update --silent

NOTE: This only works on G2 instance types.
