Adafruit board PCA9685, installation of drivers on Jetson Nano

Using Adafruit board PCA9685, during installation of drivers on Jetson Nano:

something goes wrong with

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-servokit

This is the log:

Is it possibl to fix it ?
Thank you very much.

Try to install blinka first: sudo pip3 install Adafruit-Blinka, maybe helps. Also this one talks about how to get the blinka working on a jetson nano: Initial Setup | CircuitPython Libraries on Linux and the NVIDIA Jetson Nano | Adafruit Learning System

Hi Rubberazer,
first of all thank you for your answer.

Here is the log of the Jetson ( JetPack version: 4.6.1)

teocrito@teocrito-desktop:~$ sudo pip3 install Adafruit-Blinka

Command “python setup.py egg_info” failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-fikj0xbc/Adafruit-Blinka/

Can I ignore this error?

Hi Antonio,

thank you also for the link to Adafruit setup page for jetson nano.
I will read it in order to solve my problem

No you can’t, it failed to install, you can have a go with sudo -H pip3 install Adafruit-Blinka but also yes it’s a good idea to follow the instructions on that link, they do the whole process from scratch and maybe there is some step that is needed before getting to this point

Hi Antonio,
I think that the instruction of Adafruit at

are very well done and well detailed but probably obsolete in some parts .
I write so because after a fresh image of Jetson Nano I have received some errors during installation (for example with

ls /dev/i2c* /dev/spi*
cannot access ‘/dev/spi*’: No such file or directory

or

sudo usermod -a -G gpio pi
usermod: user ‘pi’ does not exist

and many other)
