Failure to build Deepspeech on AGX Xavier?

Am trying to install mozilla deepspeech, failing pretty quickly. I installed tensorflow per the directions here

But… then executing:

pip3 install deepspeech-gpu

gave me:

Collecting deepspeech-gpu
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement deepspeech-gpu (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for deepspeech-gpu

How can I install this successfully? I would hate to have to not use Nvidia’s tensorflow build… unless I have to in order to make this work.

There are some documentation for old versions that flat out just dont work and the versions are just too old for the TX2:


The DeepSpeech official package doesn’t support Jetson platform.
You will need to build it from source.

There is a user has successfully built DeepSpeech on Xavier.
Maybe you can get the wheel file from him:
