DeepStream python apps stopped working

• Hardware Platform (Jetson / GPU) Orin AGX
• DeepStream Version 6.1.1
• JetPack Version (valid for Jetson only) 5.0.2
• TensorRT Version

• How to reproduce the issue ? (This is for bugs. Including which sample app is using, the configuration files content, the command line used and other details for reproducing)

I have recently installed DeepStream 6.1.1 with python bindings. After install I tried several of the sample python apps and all worked well.

I have done a lot of tests, some with my own custom pipelines, without any issues until yesterday.

Today, out of the blue, DeepStream stopped working! For example, when I try to run deepstream-test1 app located in



$ python sample_720p.h264

I get the following error:

Did the tests include nveglglessink?

Yes, it was always there.

He had an Orin AGX dev kit, we installed JetPack 5.0.2. After a week or so DeepStream 6.1.1 was released, so we installed this as well along with python bindings.

I tested several python test apps, e.g. deepstream-test1, deepstream-test4, deepstream-imagedata-multistream, all of the worked with osd, egl plugins.

I am connecting remotely to the devkit using NoMachine.

All issues begun after we changed the IP of the devkit. We didn’t change anything else, just the IP.

Does deepstream-test4 still work with the --no-display option?

After connecting a normal display to the device the problem went away. Thank you all for your support!
