I tried installing a virtual display on my Jeston (Not working on Nvidia · Issue #9 · dianariyanto/virtual-display-linux · GitHub), which has prevented it from booting up correctly. It gets stuck on a voltage operation error that I know is related to what I just installed.
Now, I understand which files I need to alter to get it back up and running, however I do not know how to get access to those files. This is what I’ve tried so far:
- Starting in recovery mode by holding the shift key. I continue to get stuck, but usually far enough along where I will see “Started User Manager for UID 1000”, or “Started session 1 of user”, or “Started resolvconf-pull-resolve.service. Changes…” This tells me Linux is running, but I just can’t see it.
- I’ve tried pressing the recovery button on the Jetson when starting the board. However, I will only get indication that the board has turned on (green lights), but no output to the monitor. I’m also not sure this is really what I want.
- I’ve tried starting a live session off a USB, but I don’t know how to access the boot menu. I thought that holding the shift key would bring up the boot menu, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. I’ve also tried other key combinations, but nothing seems to make a difference.
I hope it’s pretty clear, I don’t know what I’m doing. I have some past experience with dual booting Linux on laptops, but the fact that I can’t access the boot menu on this Jetson is giving me a headache.
In the shortest form possible, how do I get into my system so I can modify the files necessary?
