Anbox on Jetson Xavier NX

I was trying to install anbox on my Jetson and after most of the steps went smoothly running

sudo modprobe ashmem_linux

gave me this error:

modprobe: FATAL: Module ashmem_linux not found in directory /lib/modules/4.9.201-tegra

Any one know how to get past this error? (same error applies to binder_linux

Have a try this link.


So the info i provided was wrong. While its not possible to use dkms, we can still build the modules in-tree with a kernel build.

Just edit the file:
Linux_for_Tegra/source/public/kernel/kernel-4.9/arch/arm64/configs/tegra_defconfig file
and add these lines at the end

#Anbox Configuration

And do a kernel build with and install the modules and new kernel. And you now have the /dev/binder and /dev/ashmem!

Now I am built the anbox from sources following link here:

But figuring out how to get an android roofs image and run it !
Sadly not much documentation for arm64!

It does not work unfortunately because the kernel in jetson devices is 4.9.140. It looks like minimum kernel version needed is 4.15.
