Hi, I was able to work successfully with Orin 6.0.3 OS. This time i upgraded successfully to 6.0.4 OS as the instructions specified in “NVIDIA DRIVE OS Debian Package Installation Guide.pdf” file.
After successful flashing using the command: tools/flashtools/bootburn/ -b p3710-10-a03 -B qspi
i was able to login into Orin machine using putty & ssh but not getting Display on monitor.
I then tried to run our camera driver AR0823 or AR0233 via nvsiple_camera command with display option “-d 1” which opens the camera display on monitor.
But why i cant see the login screen or Nvidia Desktop screen on monitor. As i have also installed “nv-driveos-linux-driveos-oobe-desktop-ubuntu-20.04-rfs-” desktop package on my host machine and then reflashed the image to Orin machine. But no Nvidia desktop screen (or blank screen) is coming on monitor. Only while running the camera with -d 1 option camera display is turned on.
However, when i was working with Orin 6.0.3, the Nvidia desktop screen is coming and i can also run driveworks camera applications. And for Nvsipl_camera application with display option “-d 1”, i have to to run some insmod commands like:

systemctl stop gdm
sudo insmod /lib/modules/5.10.104-rt63-tegra/extra/opensrc-disp/nvidia-drm.ko modeset=1
sudo insmod /lib/modules/5.10.104-rt63-tegra/extra/opensrc-disp/nvidia.ko rm_firmware_active=“all”
sudo insmod /lib/modules/5.10.104-rt63-tegra/extra/opensrc-disp/nvidia-modeset.ko

After this when i m running the nvsipl_camera with display option then i m seeing display on monitor. But with 6.0.4 these commands are not mandatory to run and simply running nvsipl_camera with -d 1 will start streaming the preview on monitor.

But how to see or enable Nvidia GUI desktop screen now?
Please help…

My nvidia Orin machine conf:
nvidia@tegra-ubuntu:/$ uname -a
Linux tegra-ubuntu 5.10.104-rt63-tegra #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Tue Jul 19 18:39:06 PDT 2022 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Thanks & Regards

DriveWorks 5.6 needs rev 1. Please see below note from DRIVE OS 6.0.4 Linux Release Notes.

Please follow DRIVE OS 6.0 Installation Guide for NVIDIA Developers to install DRIVE OS 6.0.4 rev 1 with sdkmanager method or docker container method and see if your issue is also addressed. Thanks.

Hi VickNV,

I was having 6.0.3 version earlier and i used pdf installation guide that time so this time also i referred same pdf guide "NVIDIA DRIVE OS Debian Package Installation Guide.pdf” file.
As per the instructions given there i followed all steps for ubuntu system (section 4 in that file)
You mean to say that Installation/ or upgradation from 6.0.3 to 6.0.4 using sdk manager is compulsory?


Dear @mayur.verma,
Are you using DRIVE OS 6.4.0 downloaded via devzone(NVIDIA DRIVE Downloads | NVIDIA Developer). We recommend to use either sdkmanager with devzone credentials or docker container to flash the board as suggested by Vick.
