I am attempting to install tensorflow-gpu onto the Jetson Nano. One of the dependencies for this is the hdf5 library which is required for the h5py dependency for tensorflow.
When I attempt to install libhdf5-dev onto the Nano, the library cannot be found:
Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package libhdf5-dev
I have tried ‘sudo apt-get install libhdf5-dev’ with just ‘apt install’ and have tried ‘libhdf5-serial-dev’ in the installation command as well. The result is always the above. There is nothing wrong with the ‘apt’ command, other libraries have no problem downloading. I have already run ‘apt update/upgrade’ multiple times.
‘universe, multiverse, main, restricted’ repositories for Ubuntu software are all active.
From looking at the website for hdf5 releases: https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/libhdf5-dev it seems there are no active links to download the library from source for arm-64, while there are many links for other structures e.g. for amd64.
Without this dependency the pip installation of tensorflow-gpu fails. I would like to know how to solve this, or whether there is a separate, documented route for installing tensorflow with gpu support for the Jetson Nano
