Jetson TK1 set up

I am setting up my TK1 dev. kit, I connected my monitor to TK1 through HDMI to VGA converter and powered up the kit. I got the USB serial console then I ran the script and rebooted the board. now I am getting serial console on putty but serial console is getting hanged with message-
‘vgaarb: this pci device is not a vga device’. can anyone guide me?


I assume you are not seeing anything on the monitor even though you didn’t say anything about that?

The simple HDMI to VGA adapters just take the analog VGA pins from the HDMI connector and pass them to the VGA connector. Jetson doesn’t provide those analog signals (IIRC), so if VGA is the only option for you, you need to use a more expensive active adapter that creates those VGA signals from the HDMI signal.

The message "vgaarb: this pci device is not a vga device’ is common and should be harmless.

Also if you didn’t flash the latest release yet, you may want to start with that. And use the -S 14GiB option for the flash script to get 14GB rootfs.
