Tomorrow I have to setup my DRIVE Xavier for the first time.
I have watched the video in https://developer.nvidia.com/drive/drive-agx and it seems I can do it.

However the video seems a bit old. I have been told that lately when flashing DRIVE, that is not enough to have a desktop system running and that I have to install it manually by doing

sudo apt-get install gdm3 ubuntu-unity-desktop

Is this necessary? Or is this only to install the ubuntu desktop (meaning I have the green desktop installed by default)?

I have also been told that ssh is unable by default and that I have to remove the stamp file to unblock the ssh server.

Also I have to install Driveworks 3.5 separatedly.

A clarification on this will be greatly appreciated

Hi, @kansai

Why don’t you install the latest release (DRIVE OS 5.2.6)?
Here is the installation guide for it.
https://docs.nvidia.com/drive/drive-os-5.2.6.0L/drive-qsg-dz/index.html

ubuntu desktop isn’t installed by default. It is mentioned in below section of the guide.

Finalize DRIVE AGX System Setup (Linux)

Yes, DriveWorks needs to be installed manually (not done by SDK Manager).

I have been recommended by our provider to install 5.2.0.
The reason for this is that 5.2.6 is compatible with DriveWorks 4.0 and apparently DriveWorks 4.0 has not been released yet

I am sorry to say I don’t quite recall the reason they gave us for that.
I will read the link and come back probably with some questions

Just FYI. DriveWorks 4.0 was released last week. You may consider starting with it and DRIVE OS 5.2.6.

Thanks for the great tip!
One question, is it possible to install DRIVE 5.2.6 on DRIVE B, keeping DRIVE A with 5.2.0?
