Flash Jetpack3.1 from Ubuntu 16

Hi, I am trying to Flash Jetpack 3.1 to my TX2 from a desktop with Ubuntu 16.0. I need Jetpack 3.1 instead of Jetpack 3.2 because the project I am going to work on TX2 requires cuda 8.0.

When I installed Jetpack 3.1 on my desktop, I got the following error:


Installing VisionWorks 1.6.0 failed.

Return Code: 1
Error installing libvisionworks libvisionworks-dev libvisionworks-docs libvisionworks-samples to host, please check /home/xxx/Downloads/_installer/logs/64_TX2/visionworks_host.log for more details


Did any one know how to fix this? I did some search, and it seemed that to install Jetpack 3.1, I have to use Ubuntu 14.0 on the desktop. Is that true?

Thank you very much.

Jetpack 3.1 should work with Ubuntu 16.04.

Did you read the log file /home/xxx/Downloads/_installer/logs/64_TX2/visionworks_host.log that the error message described? What did it say?

I checked the log, it said:

Ign:47 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-backports/main arm64 Packages
Ign:50 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-backports/universe arm64 Packages

How can I fix it?

There are multiple repositories with mirrors and it is normal for some of them to not have what you are looking for…you will probably need to post the whole log (some of those URL issues might not actually be a bug or failure). You can attach it to an existing post. To do so if you hover your mouse over the upper right of your post where there is the quote icon you will see a paper clip icon show up…this should allow attaching to a post (you can’t attach at the time of creating a new post, you can only do this after a post already exists).
