APP Partition configuration Orin NX 16GB

Hi, I am trying to find out how to configure APP partition config flash, and separate partition for file under the / directory such as /var /var/log.

I have no idea what you are talking about.
Can you please elaborate it more?

I am trying to separate /var from / such that /var exist as a separate partition.

From my understanding, the APP Partition, refers to the ROOTFS; I can only specify the size of APP partition…

then you may just do something like this:

  1. Shrink the APP partition with tools like GNOME Disks
  2. Create a new partition behind it
  3. Copy stuff in /var into the newly created partition
  4. Modify /etc/fstab so that your partition will be mounted at /var upon boot.

Is there anyway for the APP partition to be at the end. I understand that Flashing Support — Jetson Linux Developer Guide documentation stated that root partition is at the end of the storage.

Yes, the APP partition is at the end of the storage.
What exactly are you asking about?

I attempted to install 35.2.1 using manual flashing, but when I am installing packages, I face the below issues. I had not touched the APP partition.

An unknown error occurred while installing dtoverlays.
dpkg: error processing package arducam-nvidia-l4t-kernel (--configure):
 installed arducam-nvidia-l4t-kernel package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 255

Then please file a new topic if it’s not related to your original issue.
