The OS is Ubuntu and I installed the cuda-9 driver which comes from
the toolkit package. The installation was successful and I can work
with the nvccc, and other things. For example, the Nvidia X server
setting window correctly shows the device, utilization, temperature
and other things.

Your sentence that the driver version must match smi version is not
clear for me. Can you explain more? In what situations they might be
