I tried to flash my brand-new Orin Nano Dev Kit using SDK Manager UI from Ubuntu 18.04 x86 host, with a 500 GB NVMe installed but no SD Card. Unfortunately, it failed with the following, which doesn’t seem to be related to the NVMe:

No. And this time, it’s getting much farther along than it did before. It seems to have flashed an OS and rebooted. Then SDK Manager popped up a dialog saying it was about to start copying components onto the target.
Then it popped up a thing saying it couldn’t ssh into the system, and that I should check to make sure ssh was running. But there seems to be no video output (unfortunately the display was disconnected during the process), so I was about to come here to report I was stuck, when I saw that SDK Manager had dismissed that dialog and had resumed installing content.
I don’t know if it’s copying over USB or Ethernet. It seems quite slow (2-3 seconds per 0.01%). Would be nice if it showed a data transfer rate.
I guess you solved this, but some of it is a mystery. For the sake of posterity…
Slow or not, this seems to function correctly. I don’t see any kind of error/drop/overrun:
What confuses me though is that there is neither IPv4 nor IPv6 address on usb0. If the USB virtual address is assigned, then the host PC should see IPv4 192.168.55.1 (the Jetson would have 192.168.55.1). Note that some of the traffic can in fact be DHCP without any address.
Is the wired ethernet of the Jetson attached? If the wired ethernet were used, then the USB ethernet would not matter, but then you’d need the wired ethernet address.
Note that flash has no requirement for ethernet. Only the install of optional content cares. After flash it automatically reboots. You are free to uncheck flash though and run sdkmanager for just optional packages and not flash if the Jetson is fully booted. The wired ethernet is likely faster than the USB ethernet in some cases.
So far as debugging goes, any echo to “/proc” files is reset if you reboot. Only settings in “/etc/sysctl.conf” would remain after reboot.
Hmm. It seems to have installed successfully, but I couldn’t get the display to turn on, and I don’t see it on my network. I don’t know what the default mDNS name is. I tried reconnecting to it with SDK Manager, and that said there was a new version of JetPack (5.1.1), and offered to update it. Odd, unless that came out in the last 24 hours.
I decided to just power cycle the device, but it still won’t output anything to the display.
At least power cycling it made it appear in my DHCP server list, so I’m able to ssh into it. Any ideas on getting the display up?
Since you can ssh in, what do you see from “dmesg”? Also, find the log file listed from: ls -ltr /var/log/Xorg.*.log | tail -n 1
…and post that log.
I’d note the IP address too since at a later date this will usually remain constant if you stick to the same router (though it could change). It might be useful to ping that at another time if it fails.
You’ll need to be careful. JetPack encompasses the NVIDIA compute libraries. They are probably be correct. On the other hand, the lower level board support may be incorrect. The board is a little bit different than previous carrier boards. If you encounter issues with hardware features not working, take that into account.
