Important Note

Following items are pending to be released (we will update this announcement when they are made live):

  • Jetson containers for JetPack 5.1.1 on NGC

Hi I have upgraded my Jetson Agx Xavier dev kit, with boot from SSD, from version 35.2.1 to version 35.3, with sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. And now it doesn’t boot, the screen stays black and the cursor blinks, I can access the boot device selector, but once the boot starts, the screen stays black with the white cursor blinking, what can I do?

@jairo.ramirez would you be able to create a seperate forum topic on this. The apt upgrades we support is with the devkit configuration and for Jetson AGX Xavier devkit, it would be emmc storage. But our team can help out here on this. We will also work on making apt upgrades support other non default storages (like SSD and Nvme).

Does this version not have NVIDIA Deepstream?

@jairo.ramirez DeepStream 6.2 supports Jetpack 5.1.1 as well.

When I use SDK Manager to install it, I don’t get the option to install Deepstream 6.2.

@jairo.ramirez we added the DeepStream 6.2 for JetPack 5.1.1 in the SDK manager now. Install the latest SDKM and you should be able to see DeepStream now.
