Jetson Nano and Julia?

Is it possible to implement and run the Julia programming language on a Jetson Nano? Has anyone gained any experience with it?

And because I have a lot of fantasy, is it possible to install JuliaPro on the Nano?

There are Linux versions for both applications, but no reasonable reaction from the Nano. I admit, I also have almost no Linux (Ubuntu) experience…!

I’m glad about every little hint! Thank you!

Hi Student_DE,

We haven’t try Julia on Nano yet, not sure if any specific environment configuration requirement or issue there. You may try and share your finding to forum.

  1. go to
  2. download the Generic Linux Binaries for ARM aarch64
  3. follow platform instructions for Linux:

Hi dkreutz,
this is what I was trying to do. Unfortunately, as written, I don’t get a reasonable reaction. The Julia symbol shows a kind of “heartbeat” for 5 seconds and then literally nothing more. I would be happy about a message like "Sorry, Julia is not designed for my system …! Then I would have clarity!

Hi kayccc,
thanks for your answer! I’m working my way deeper into Ubuntu to avoid a mishandling by myself. But I think that Julia is not running on the Nano (but would be a great thing if Julia was suitable for the Nano)!

I continue my research and report…!

Hi Student_DE,

I tried it and it works on my Jetson Nano with Jetpack 4.2.1 [L4T 32.2.0]
My download is:

Hello dkreutz,

thanks for the link! Exactly this link I had already used. I read myself a little deeper into the handling of tar.gz files and installed it without " pressure ". Still a few challenges with the path variable had, but finally I can say “it runs”! :)

Hi kayccc,

from my point of view I can say that Julia is running on the Jetson Nano!

i have use jetson nano 2GB kit. It’s simply install julia 1.5.3.
just remember download linux-Arm version. that’s all. thank you.

I am interested in Julia v0 and not v1.
I tried to download on my Jetson Nano the git repository and make it (from GitHub - JuliaLang/julia: The Julia Programming Language).
But i have an architecture problem : “unknown world size for arch aarch64”
Any ideas how to solve that ?
