I think Debian is already doing a good job with CUDA, at least as it pertains to my work with Python+GPU. My thanks and please keep it up! One recent example for me is installing "cupy" from PyPI via pip. On Debian testing/sid it Just Works(tm)! On Ubuntu 18.04 it caused me to enter "CUDA install hell". The CUDA version provided by the OS is apparently not supported by "cupy" on PyPI. My attempts to build cupy from source against Ubuntu CUDA or to install more recent CUDA from non-Ubuntu to satisfy PyPI's cupy both were utter failures. For this and other reasons, my solution is actually to migrate my Ubuntu 18.04 systems to Debian. BTW, there is a HN thread formed this morning on Python/GPU things that may be usefully related here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=27205586 https://discuss.python.org/t/what-to-do-about-gpus-and-the-built-distributions-that-support-them/7125 -Brett.
