I am super frustrated with NVIDIA right now. Let me explain.
- While I was in the USAF, I wanted to develop my robots with the Isaac SDK. The main road block was that I could not buy a high end PC with the NVIDIA GPU installed due to policy.
Now I am working for a private company and was able to purchase a computer with an RTX 3060 installed but they shipped it in 20.04 and I need 18.04 to use the SDK!
Guess what? I can’t install 18.04 because of how new the graphics card is. Of course, I understand we are to be left in the dark about the hopes of using 20.04 someday due to Kernel compatibilities and such. But this is absolutely frustrating!
- I have been reading these guides over and over. I found a link where a developer was able to run a “ping” tutorial through LXC. I succeed with that. Later I find something about running in Docker. So I tried and example as shown in the NVIDIA documentation. It Does Not Work!
I feel like the combination of not understanding enough about linux, docker, LXC and the endless rabbit holes make using this SDK a mountain of a task when it is being sold as a “super easy” way to develop cutting edge robotics.
