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.Continue reading “Getting Blender to use CUDA in a render farm”
Late last year I got a couple of ASUS 2U server’s off eBay which are now racked in my home lab. They came with some Nvidia Tesla K10 GPU compute cards in them, 4 in each, and I wanted to get them setup so that I could use CUDA & potentially rendering with either Blender or Davinci Resolve as a render farm.
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.Continue reading “Installing CUDA 10.1 on Ubuntu 20.04 to support older GPU cards”
Weather webcams are always popular and it is easy and free to set one up yourself. This article will show how to setup a simple USB webcam to produce still images and serve them on a local apache webserver.
