Having problems updating CMake on Xavier NX!

Hi All,

I have tried upgrading CMake on my Xavier NX using methods explained in other threads on the site here and none have worked for me. I need it to be at least version 3.12. Does anyone know how this can be achieved?

I want to be able to connect a Raspberry Pi Pico to my Jetson and programme it with C. The Pico requires CMake 3.12 as a minimum.

Thank you for any help in advance.

Best wishes,


The latest stable version is 3.19.5 in CMake’s official site
You can install it with these commands:

wget https://github.com/Kitware/CMake/releases/download/v3.19.5/cmake-3.19.5-Linux-aarch64.tar.gz -q --show-progress 
tar -zxvf cmake-3.19.5-Linux-aarch64.tar.gz 
cd cmake-3.19.5-Linux-aarch64/
sudo cp -rf bin/ doc/ share/ /usr/local/
sudo cp -rf man/* /usr/local/man
cmake --version 

Hope it helps.


This worked a treat, incredibly grateful for your help.

Thank you!

All the best.
