Getting Blender to use CUDA in a render farm

In an earlier article I covered how I got the NVIDIA Tesla K10 GPU cards working under Ubuntu 20.04 with CUDA. In this article I will cover how I got Blender working to allow me to use them.

As I installed Ubuntu 20.04 in them, I thought it was going to be as simple as just installing CUDA – which it was with a minor setback. The current version of CUDA is 11 which Nvidia decided to remove support for compute level 3.0 devices including the K10’s I have, so I had to install the earlier version.

Right now I’ve stopped looking at it & will come back to it later, but I’m writing this just in case someone else knows what’s causing it to fail.
