Hello, i have a whole zoo of problems when trying to install and flash with SDK Manger DriveOS 6.0.4 Linux. Precondition with /usr/bin/python is satisfied.

PROBLEM 1: Login to developer.nvidia.com does not work behind corporate proxy

The login via browser works flawlessly, in SDK manager it shows “Login credentials retrieved successfully”, but then it takes long time and finally give the error message “Unable to connect to proxy server” although the proxy configuration is fine.

Therefore i downloaded the relevant files on a different PC (not behind proxy) and copied the files to the target PC which is connected to the orin eval board to continue in offline mode. All following issues are when proceeding in offline mode.

PROBLEM 2: installation of cuda and vulkan packages fails

SDK Manager recognizes the files placed in the download folder (see above) but then installation of some of them fails.

CUDA fails:

PROBLEM 4: installation of some packages requires interactive user-input for NV_WORKSPACE

I tried to export NV_WORKSPACE in .bashrc and .profile, but still the interactive request comes up (and of course in SDK manager i cannot type in anything to make it happy).

SDK manager lets a apt-get install producedure hanging waiting for user-input

tje2abt@ABTZ0O1F:~$ ps -aux | grep apt
root      832928  0.0  0.0  37108  5908 ?        S    10:13   0:00 sudo -E apt-get install -y --allow-downgrades /home/tje2abt/workspace/nvidia-driveos-6.0.4-linux-download/cuda-repo-ubuntu2004-11-4-local_11.4.17-470.129.06-1_amd64.deb

And when i kill this one and run

sudo dpkg --configure -a

It lets me input NV_WORKSPACE interactively and i can continue, but still CUDA is shown as not installed successfully.

SUMMARY:
I tried to cleanup everything with.

#!/bin/bash
sudo rm -rf $NV_WORKSPACE
mkdir $NV_WORKSPACE
rm -rf ~/nvidia/
rm -rf ~/.nvsdkm/
sudo -E apt-get -y --purge remove nv-driveos*

But again, i get in the same situation with problems above.

Attached you find the .nvsdkm folder after several attempts …

Hi @janosch.steinhoff
It seems a few environment problems on your host systems.
Please try if DRIVE OS Docker Containers installation method mentioned in DRIVE OS 6.0 Installation Guide for NVIDIA Developers will be easier for your situation.

@janosch.steinhoff may I know if you are able to access the DRIVE AGX SDK Program files (e.g. locked documentation) from “behind your corporate proxy”? e.g. those with the locked symbol in NVIDIA DRIVE Documentation | NVIDIA Developer as below.

@janosch.steinhoff
The reflash issue was fixed in SDK Manager 1.8.3.
Please download the latest NVIDIA SDK Manager and try it. Thanks.

Hi @VickNV thanks a lot for your replies!

Regarding docker:
access to the containers in NGC was not working for me, but i now got response and workaround from our key-account manager, i will try asap

PROBLEM 1: Login to developer.nvidia.com does not work behind corporate proxy
I can access also documents with lock symbol from the documentation page. But i found that my browser uses a different proxy setting, so i need to further check on my end regarding this.

Problem 3: OS image ready but flashing fails with “file not found”
I tried the new version SDK Manager 1.8.3, thanks for the hint. This proceeds a little further but then gets stuck interactively asking for the sudo password (which it asked for already before). From the log i could see that it actually just wants to run /tmp/tmp_NV_DRIVE_FLASH_DRIVE_COMP.sh , so i did this manually.

Next it failed getting the board revision, this i was able to overcome by setting the board in recovery manually via the Aurix console.

Now i fail with
grafik

Any proposal how to continue with that? (Other than docker, which i plan to try anyhow)

We will check the logs. In the meantime, please help see if DRIVE Orin DevKit SDK manager flashing failed to version DRIVE OS 6.0.4 - #24 by VickNV helps with this.

From the log, we could see that sudo password was provided automatically. However, we could not tell why it hang there. Does this issue always reproduce?

11:52:33.630 - info: NV_CUDA_HOST_COMP@host - download is paused

@janosch.steinhoff may I know the status of this?
