I work with Jetpack 3.2.1 on a Nvidia TX2 platform (Ubuntu 16.04, kernel 4.4).
I created a script using the file repository.json downloaded when starting the Jetpack process to optimize the flashing process of my units. This script is basically downloading Jetpack’s packages using URLs saved in this repository.json file and installing those on the target.
I noticed recently those URl addresses point now to empty pages (error 404: not found).
For example, one of those addresses is:
As a fix, I downloaded again Jetpack 3.2, got the new repository.json file and replaced it in my script. I also noticed this file changed a lot compared to the previous one even if it was also on Jetpack 3.2.1).
I was able to fix the script but I noticed some of the packages downloaded had been upgraded compared to my previous setup:
- libcudnn7 (version 188.8.131.52-1 to 184.108.40.206-1)
- Tegra186_Linux (version R28.2.0 to R28.2.1)
I wanted to know:
1/. What is included in this modification ? I need to validate all changes before being able to deploy again on a new unit.
2/. How often this type of modification will occur ? This is breaking a lot of automatic processes on my side without any notice and it can be embarrassing in the future.
