Failed to install & flash the Jetson OS from the Docker image of the Nvidia SDK Manager

Hello,

I followed the steps to download & use docker image built by NVidia to run sdkmanager:
https://docs.nvidia.com/sdk-manager/docker-containers/index.html

So I downloaded sdkmanager-1.6.0.8170_docker.tar.gz.
I ran :
docker run -it --privileged -v /dev/bus/usb:/dev/bus/usb/ --name JetPack_NX_Devkit sdkmanager --cli install --logintype devzone --product Jetson --target JETSON_XAVIER_NX_TARGETS --targetos Linux --version 4.6 --select 'Jetson OS' --deselect 'Jetson SDK Components' --flash all --license accept --staylogin true --datacollection enable --exitonfinish

and

docker run -it --privileged -v /dev/bus/usb:/dev/bus/usb/ --name JetPack_NX_Devkit sdkmanager --cli install --logintype devzone --product Jetson --target P3668-0001 --targetos Linux --version 4.6 --select 'Jetson OS' --deselect 'Jetson SDK Components' --flash all --license accept --staylogin true --datacollection enable

The process failed.

Is there any way to flash my board from my host (ubuntu 20.04) or from my container ?

Best regards

Hello Richard,

Can you please try the steps in this post?

Hi,

qemu-user-static is already installed on my host machine. JetPack is not installed.

Please note sdkmanager run from NVidia’s container.

Hi,

I changed the β€œtarget” option.
The docker container is too small (?) for JETSON_XAVIER_NX_TARGETS.
P3668-0001 was probably an incompatible target (sdkmanager do not tell me that in a cristal clear way).
Interactive cli does not guess the right target.
Graphical sdkmanager allow me to guess the right target (executed on host but cannot flash with it. See https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/sdkmanager-incompatible-with-ubuntu-20-04/187977/2.)

So :

  • Error messages from sdkmanager are cryptic.
  • Graphical sdkmanager allow me to guess the right target.
  • CLI from docker allow me to flash.

Problem solved.
