Error run docker image nvcr.io/nvidia/l4t-base:r32.6.1 on jetson AGX

I have a Jetson AGX, and I want to run docker image nvcr.io/nvidia/l4t-base:r32.6.1. I referenced many tutorials they told me that I need to install nvidia-container-runtime.

  • All commands I used to install nvidia-container-runtime listed below:
curl -s -L https://nvidia.github.io/nvidia-docker/gpgkey | sudo apt-key add -
distribution=$(. /etc/os-release;echo $ID$VERSION_ID)
curl -s -L https://nvidia.github.io/nvidia-docker/$distribution/nvidia-docker.list | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-docker.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-docker2 -y
  • In addition, I modified the /etc/docker/daemon.json with content:
{
    "runtimes": {
        "nvidia": {
            "path": "/usr/bin/nvidia-container-runtime",
            "runtimeArgs": []
         } 
    },
    "default-runtime": "nvidia" 
}
  • After all, I restart docker daemon:
sudo systemctl restart docker

All above steps I did on other Jetson NX and docker work fine, but when i run docker image l4t-base:r32.6.1 on my Jetson AGX with interactive mode

sudo docker run -it --rm --net=host --runtime nvidia -e DISPLAY=$DISPLAY -v /tmp/.X11-unix/:/tmp/.X11-unix nvcr.io/nvidia/l4t-base:r32.6.1

I received error:

docker: Error response from daemon: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:380: starting container process caused: process_linux.go:545: container init caused: Running hook #0:: error running hook: exit status 1, stdout: , stderr: nvidia-container-cli: initialization error: driver error: failed to process request: unknown.

Hi,

The container requires r32.6.1 OS but you are using r32.5.0 which is incompatible.
Please upgrade your Xavier with JetPack4.6 or use nvcr.io/nvidia/l4t-base:r32.5.0 instead.

Thanks.

I downloaded nvcr.io/nvidia/l4t-base:r32.5.0 and run, but the same error with r32.6.1

Hi @AastaLLL thank you for your assistance so far. Can you urgently let us know your thoughts on why it still doesn’t work after changing to a compatible version?

@AastaLLL , I reinstall AGX with r32.6.1 OS, and no more error driver notification. But I ran sudo apt-get install nvidia-docker2 -y again, AGX error driver again. Do you have a way restore the original state of jetpack, because I cannot reinstall OS again?

@alanz do you have any thoughts on datlt’s last comment?

You don’t need to install the docker runtime, It’s already there when you flashed the Xavier with JP4.6.1. Here is the default components lists.
