Run the Jetpack program from your host PC, ensure that you FLASH Filesystem to Jetson.

It is important to know that when a Jetson first arrives, the nVidia-specific files are not yet installed. Those files sometimes help with setting up video…there are cases where the system boots up and is running, but you can’t tell because of the video not working (ping of the network address seen from the router could verify life). Completing the install of those nVidia-specific files on a freshly arrived Jetson can be difficult without video, yet those files may be what is needed for video to work…a bit of a dilemma.

Using the serial console (the preferred way if you have the right cable) gets around this. See:

Using ssh will do the job as well. Probably you would need to have access to the machine to initially set up wireless, but wired should work if you have a router to respond to DHCP requests.

Via serial console or ssh, the final install step is:

sudo ./

Flash also does the job. There is a step in the flash process equivalent to the script which applies those files to the sample rootfs.

There are other ways as well, as the files being applied are available and can be directly copied to a Jetson (such as via ssh…but in that case it is simpler to either just run the script on the Jetson, or flash).

Flash can be done manually, or via JetPack. I do not have an Ubuntu host, so I can’t help on the JetPack error you ran into. Manual flash without JetPack is not difficult if nobody is able to help out on the JetPack issue.
