My name, for this forum, is Ferone Raspian. I want to apologize in advance for the slew of questions i am going to ask, and i understand the developers on this forum won’t want to waste their time and i am just here to see what i can learn from this community.
INFO ( NO NEED TO READ)
I am new to all this, and i want some suggestions on what to do with a new Nvidia Jetson TK1 Board. I built a case out of cheap painting canvas and nylon stand-offs. I plan on using this system as a full desktop environment. I also LOVE arduino controllers, so i really want to mess with the GPIOs on this board. Is there a “blinking led” first program tutorial for this board?
So, i found this Nvidia Jetson on ebay for $80 and free shipping and in new condition, and i decided to purchase it. After getting the embedded OS run, i decided to test out the system with some software, and so far i am loving it!
I have a decent amount of experience with Arduino micro controllers and some experience with the Raspberry Pi 2. I am not completely lost when dealing with this Nvidia Board; however, i would love some direction or suggestions as what to do from here.
I have ran across a few problems with the embedded os;
FireFox videos are black, chromium runs fine. How can i fix FireFox?
Bluetooth/ wireless dongles dnt work ( i read i need to compile and install another kernel. is this the only way?)
Can i install and run an OS from the SATA port? using an SSD?
Would raspberry pi OS systems run on the Nvidia board? seeing how both are ARMHF
Is there a way to ensure i have the latest OS updates/Distro for this board? i already tried the apt-get update/upgrade but there is still a “Install Release” icon, meaning there is a new Distro?
