Nvidia Runtime Library

Recommended Posts

This is really interesting work.  I have a Quadro P620 passed through to a Plex container on my Unraid box and works great - but I would much prefer to use Xpenology.


I followed this guide to get it working on Unraid where a lot of the hard work is done in one of their plugins.


Fingers crossed for us on the Xpenology side!



..although looks like the plugin has been pulled as Unraid now supports Nvidia directly.. [ link ]

Hey All, 


Very intresting topic. I have installed a GT 1030 in a microserver gen 8, with DSM 6.2.3. I have compiled a custom version of ffmpeg, and still have the same error, cuda initialization failed. 

Driver is ok (I think) :




Trying to install NVIDIA Driver : 


GT1030 does not support NVENC.




I have a Quadro P400 rev 1.0 (HP). Can test, if someone can say how. 

nvidia-smi shows P400. How to test ffmpeg?

if i change the spk info with an editor like Notepad++ i get errors with unkown fileformat 

has any one got a working spk file for the DS3617xs 


I see that the 3617xs has an broadwell arch and not the denverton

The 3617xs  has an Xeon D cpu and the dva3219 has an atom based cpu 

i geus this wont even happen

i got teh package to install but now when i start nvidia-smi it states 
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
and i cant get it to do it 

installed the NVIDIARuntimeLibrary-dva3219-1.0.1-0014.spk with the INFO file edited to show no model 

Copied the .ko files from the nvidia_440.44_3615_623.zip that was given in a previous post to the /usr/lib/modules/ and ran the 
insmod on all the .ko files but it gave back errors 

 insmod /usr/lib/modules/nvidia.ko
insmod: ERROR: could not insert module /usr/lib/modules/nvidia.ko: Unknown symbol in module
ash-4.3# insmod /usr/lib/modules/nvidia*.ko
insmod: ERROR: could not insert module /usr/lib/modules/nvidia-drm.ko: Invalid parameters

After switching back to the 0011 spk smi started working and the insmod worked as well 
for some reason after a reboot the .ko files arent loaded and smi goes back to cant communicate with driver until i rerun insmod for the .ko files

but now its says 
Unable to determine the device handle for GPU 0000:13:00.0: Unknown Error
Have and GTX690 to test with and in a newer amd build a RTX2070 in bouth i get this error 

quadro P2000 is underway 


any sugestions

after changeing a VM value hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = FALSE the nvdia-smi workend and showed 


ash-4.3# nvidia-smi
