I have the following configuration:

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP3 (x86_64)
  • CUDA Toolkit: CUDA 9.2 (9.2.148 Update 1)
  • CUDA Driver Version: 396.37

According to NVIDIA just right (https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-toolkit-release-notes/index.html#major-components).

I set up a new environment with Anaconda and installed tensorflow-gpu in it:

conda create -n keras python=3.6.8 anaconda
conda install -c anaconda tensorflow-gpu

But if I then want to check the installation via python console:

import tensorflow as tf
sess = tf.Session(config=tf.ConfigProto(log_device_placement=True))

I get the following error:

Status: CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version

I've been looking for solutions from others with this problem, but for most of them it was because the CUDA Toolkit and Driver version didn't match. Which is not the case with me.

I'd really appreciate the help.


I'm sorry, I've already found the solution myself. My mistake was that I created the Anaconda environment with a python version >3.5. Under these circumstances tensorflow-gpu=1.13 will be installed, if you execute the following command:

conda install -c anaconda tensorflow-gpu

However, if you create an environment with python=3.5, tensorflow-gpu=1.10 will be installed, which works for this CUDA version.
