Hi

What’s the NVIDIA driver you want to install?
Here is the forum for Jetson Nano product, is your issue related with Jetson Nano?

Hi Kayccc,

I want to install nvidia-smi, so I follow this link and run some command line.

sudo apt purge nvidia-*
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install nvidia-381

I got error “E: Unable to locate package nvidia-381”. So I want to revert.

Yes, I run on Jetson Nano

Thanks.

Hi

The nvidia-smi is only available for Desktop GPUs, it can’t work on Jetson platform, please refer to below topic: Command nvidia-smi on Jetson Nano not working?

Hi kayccc,

Thanks you.
