Fedora 33

In wiki- documentation, in section "Cuda", I read this:
You will also need to disable SELinux:
su -c 'setenforce 0'


How can I use my GPU- card without disabling SELinux?

That particular line was added by a user called 'RustyBSD' in 2012. I don't recognise the handle, and no explanation is given. It's also likely that the CUDA driver situation has changed, even since the page as a whole was last updated (2017).

I'd just give it a try - ignore that line, and report back with your experiences. Please post any error messages your receive.

What GPU (or GPUs) do you have in the machine? Please post your BOINC startup messages for the GPU detection and advise what kernel version you are running.

I suspect you've been caught by the "GPL condom" as the kernel developers called it.
