Is it possible to install CUDA 9 on the TX2 without flashing the OS? Flashing is not currently an option for me due to extensive setup that would be difficult to reproduce.
I was able to use the repository .deb files that Jetpack 3.2 downloaded to manually install the CUDA 9.0 toolkit without connecting directly to the device, using the instructions found in ~/jetson/_installer/cuda-l4t.sh. I can build the samples, however when running them, I get an error message stating that “CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version”. Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH appropriately does not fix the problem.
Is there any way to update the drivers on the device without wiping the root filesystem? I can blow away /usr and /var if necessary, but not /etc. I am comfortable with the configuration, compilation, and installation of the linux kernel as well as kernel modules. I can gain access to the machine to program via USB, though it is much easier to upgrade remotely via an ssh connection. Thanks!
