Couldn't run a test-app. Please Help me

I just installed JetPack 4.2.2. and DeepStream 4.0 for Jetson.

And run a deepstream-test1-app but didn’t work.

Here is error message.

What I missed?

Hi YodaPaPa,

Below is “deepstream-test1-app” usage:

Usage: deepstream-test1-app <H264 filename>

Please try to run below commands:

$ deepstream-test1-app /opt/nvidia/deepstream/deepstream-4.0/samples/streams/sample_720p.h264

I tried but failed.

Hi YodaPaPa,

From log error is show failed to load config file.
Please check below folder:
/opt/nvidia/deepstream/deepstream-4.0/samples/models/Primary_Detector/

The normal log should be:

I’m using the Deepstream 4.x

I had the same problem…
you must go to : “/opt/nvidia/deepstream-4.0/sources/apps/sample_apps/deepstream-test1”
over there u will see a bunch of files:

    c file dstest1_pgie_config.txt a Make file a readme file

you compile by just typing : make
normally you should see a new file.

then you run:
./deepstream-test1-app /opt/nvidia/deepstream/deepstream-4.0/samples/streams/sample_720p.h264
" et voilà!"
hope it helps - for me it did

Thanks a lot.

Ooo… thanks so much. That saved my day, too.
I wonder if that’s ever documented 🤔
