I am trying to install Jetson inference in my tensorbook, I am getting error with command make -j$(nproc)

I looked at the TensorBook and really like that! However, you reached the part of the forums which are for Jetsons. However, if you are using your TensorBook with a Jetson, then the install of the correct software would be via JetPack/SDK Manager in most cases (this would find a compatible release). Are you running Linux on the TensorBook to develop for an NVIDIA Jetson?

If you are, then see:
https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/jetpack-archive
(pick the most recent one if you can, or one that matches the release on your Jetson)

If not, then you should not install with the above. For non-Jetson use I’m thinking you would want to post in one of the sub-forums of this, although someone here might know the answer to your question for installation to your laptop TensorBook:

Those laptops do look really nice. jetson-inference is only supported on Jetson though, hence you are seeing that cannot find -lnvbuf_utils error (which is a Jetson-specific library)

DeepStream SDK can be run on both x86 and Jetson if you prefer to use the same code across platforms - or deep learning frameworks like PyTorch/TensorFlow/ect can run on both.
