DeepStream 6.0 can't detect custom object that are trained with YOLOv3

• Hardware Platform (Jetson Nano/ GPU NVIDIA Maxwell architecture with 128 NVIDIA CUDA® cores)
• DeepStream Version - 6.0.0-1_arm64
• JetPack Version (valid for Jetson only) - 4.6-b199
• TensorRT Version - 8.2.1-1+cuda10.2

**• Not detecting custom objects with custom yolov3 weights and cfg.
**• So, I installed DeepStream 6.0 with this guide Quickstart Guide — DeepStream 6.0 Release documentation . After this I follow instructions from Custom YOLO Model in the DeepStream YOLO App — DeepStream 6.1 Release documentation and from /opt/nvidia/deepstream/deepstream-6.0/sources/objectDetector_Yolo/README.txt. When I test with original yolov3.cfg and yolov3.weights all is working good, detection done! But, when I try with my yolov3_custom.cfg and yolov3_custom.weights the detection not work and don’t understand why.
So, the first idea would be that the problem is in the configurations and weights that are not well done. But, when I run my yolov3_custom.cfg and yolov3_custom.weights with Darknet Framework the detection is working very good (but FPS very low). So, conclusion is that my configuration and weigths are well done.

What could be the problem with DeepStream SDK ? Thank you !

@vlad88 Which model do you test (then model of your own or in our demo)? Your model and config files may not match for DeepStream.
Maybe you can refer the link below to use custom Yolo models.

I test model from yours demo (yolov3.cfg, yolov3.weights, 80 classes) - and it is working
But my yolo.cgf and yolo.weights - not working.

Before, my models works good, the detection worked well. One time I enter in terminal something like this sudo apt-get remove --purge '^nvidia-.* (my bad) , and my board died. I reinstall image again on my SD-card, installed Python3, OpenCV 4.1.1, DeepStream 6.0, and after this my detection model didn’t work anymore.
It may somehow influence the driver delete command written above?

Yes, you may remove something important for DeepStream, or even worse, you may remove some driver for your computer. You can try to restart by refering the link below:
https://docs.nvidia.com/metropolis/deepstream/dev-guide/text/DS_Quickstart.html

I solved the problem.
I reinstall all again, but now with Method 2 : Using the DeepStream tar package:
And now detection is working.
Thank you !
