I just got my Jetson TX2 Developer Kit, which is doing a fine job of running what appears to be a very vanilla version of Ubuntu 16.04. I’d like to put JetPack 3 on it, but my main Deep Learning development system is an MSI laptop running Ubuntu 16.04 (plus some beefy servers at my company’s data centers, but I have no physical access to those). I’m not sure if it would run Ubuntu 14.04, even if I were to install it on an external hard drive (which is at least a possibility).
What are the prospects for supporting JetPack on Ubuntu 16.04? I really don’t want to have to buy another computer just to be able to run JetPack.
Am I missing something? I’m eager to play with my TX2, but currently stymied by this version issue.
