DGX Station V100: Dual boot--Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04

I have just upgraded my DGX Station V100 to run under Ubuntu 20.04. However, I want to use Omniverse which runs under Ubuntu 18.04

I am wondering if I can (should) create dual boot for running ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 so that I can select OS version when during boot-up.

  • Would there be any issue with licenses?


The good workaround would be running Omniverse in a container with a compatible version of Ubuntu.

Nucleus is available in a containerized setup out of the box (please see Packages, Requirements, Planning, and Preparation ā€” Omniverse Nucleus documentation). If you set up proper X11 forwarding, you should be able to run Create in container as a GUI app as well.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Hi @wong.earth , Iā€™d discourage you from dual-booting, and just stick with DGX OS 5.x (aka Ubuntu 20.04 LTS), then use containers like @myurasov recommended.
