Jetson: on boot, dialogue: System program problem detected

would appreciate advice on locating issue:

can login via ssh fine, just afaict X11 and desktop never run.

dialogue was raised immediately after installing OpenCV4Tegra runtime and developer packages
I tried removing these and other CUDA packages, but same dialogue.

seems likely or at least possible there was a library conflict…

If you did an apt-get upgrade you may have this issue:

In general, try “sha1sum -c /etc/nv_tegra_release” and see if required files are ok.
