Can Nsight be installed and directly used in TX2?

I have used SDK in the host computer to install Nsight Eclipse 10.0 and tested the remote debugging feature in TX2 successfully.

But when I installed the Nsight manually in the TX2 via (sudo apt install nvidia-nsight --fix-missing) and tried to test the nsight’s debugging feature in the same TX2. It reported the CUDA version incompatibility problem and stop the execution. I wonder whether I need to use another way to install Nsight in the TX2 device (not only installed in the host machine). One of posts disagreed to install nsight manually or in TX2. Is it true? Can it be fixed.

This is for course use. It would be convenient for students to use it even if host machine and TX2 devices are not in the same LAN.


Sorry for the late reply.

Nsight cannot be used on the Jetson platform. It’s required an x86 environment.
But you can remote access the TX2 with the Nsight.


I use root login, so I will not use sudo before any command

apt install aptitude

aptitude install install eclipse
or download

aptitude install synaptic
run synaptic
remove default-jre-*
remove default-jdk-*
remove openjdk-11-*

add-apt-repository ppa:openjdk-r/ppa
apt update
apt install openjdk-8-jdk

aptitude install libcanberra-gtk-module

run eclipse
