Issue running deepstream-app

Please provide complete information as applicable to your setup.

• Hardware Platform (Jetson / GPU): RTX 2070
• DeepStream Version: 5.1
• JetPack Version (valid for Jetson only)
• TensorRT Version: 7.2
• NVIDIA GPU Driver Version (valid for GPU only): 470.63.01


I run into this error when I try to run the deepstream app from the sample configs (deepstream-app -c source4_1080p_dec_infer-resnet_tracker_sgie_tiled_display_int8.txt). Am I missing something?

I followed all the install instructions for Ubuntu system given in the quickstart guide (Quickstart Guide — DeepStream 5.1 Release documentation)

nvbufsurftransform:cuInit failed : 100
nvbufsurftransform:cuInit failed : 100

How about remove the cache and run again?
rm ~/.cache/gstreamer-1.0/ -rf

Hi @amycao ,

Thanks for your reply. I tried this and got an extra warning. But still can’t get past the intial error.

Can you find these modules:
gst-inspect-1.0 nvdsgst_jpegdec
gst-inspect-1.0 nvstreammux

also can you find this file

Hi @amycao , I don’t have any of these. Should I try re-installing tensorrt or cuda?

Yes. you also can try with docker which have the dependency software installed.

Hi @amycao,

I’ve tried 3 different docker versions (5.0, 5.1, 6.0) and get different errors each time.

When I used deepstream 5.0, I get this error:

When I used deepstream 5.1, I get this error:

When I used deepstream 6.0, I get this error:

I make sure that my folder has all the necessary files.

I’m also using the following nvidia driver:
Driver Version: 460.91.03 CUDA Version: 11.2

I’ve attached my config files as well. Thanksdeepstream_basic.txt (1.5 KB)
model_basic.txt (767 Bytes)

For version 6.0, can you find nxstreammux?
gst-inspect-1.0 nxstreammux

Hi @amycao,

No, I can’t find this in the docker. Did I miss something?

Sorry for the wrong typo, it’s nvstreammux not nxstreammux.

Hi @amycao,

I don’t have that either.

Please try to remove the cache and run again
rm ~/.cache/gstreamer-1.0/ -rf


I think it’s exactly the same.

Hi @amycao,

I think I succeeded with deepstream5.1. Maybe since the nvidia driver is not the most recent one, there is some mismatch with the latest Deepstream6.0?

Also, since I’m relatively new to using dockers, I didn’t realise that I had to transfer the folders (config and data) with the configs and video file to the docker container folder.

Thanks for your help!

Which nvidia driver version you are using?
