1st Part :
I’m trying to install L4T R16.5 on the SoC provided by Toradex, the Apalis T30.
However, I am running into some troubles.
The Apalis is initially shipped with a BSP and Angstrom… which is no good for me, I need Ubuntu!
I am following the release notes from here : https://developer.nvidia.com/linux-tegra-rel-16
I can’t manage to flash the system image onto my Apalis… maybe there are some differences with the Cardhu ? To be more precise, I can create the system.img but I can’t manage to flash it into the board.
I set my module in Recovery mode, and from the “lsusb” command I can see a NVida Device connected.
---------- If you have any ideas on this, please help :) ----------------------
2nd Part :
Then, I started trying many different things.
I downloaded the stock Apalis Linux image from here :
I also downloaded the drivers, codecs and Sample File Sytem from L4T R16.5, and I replaced the rootfs of the Apalis from the rootfs from L4T.
I can flash this image onto my Apalis from the update.sh script provided by Toradex.
I have a running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, that seems to be the right L4T release.
After installing ubuntu-desktop, I have a working graphical desktop !
HOWEVER, I don’t have any hardware acceleration. The Tegra 3 GPU is not detected.
The nvidia-detector utility gives me “none”…
Desktop feels a bit laggy, and my video decoding capabilities are very low.
From a simple webcam, I have a 2sec lag and low fps.
Xorg.conf seems ok, the tegra drivers are still in the folder /usr/lib/x11/modules/drivers
The ABI Xserver version is 11.
I have tried literaly a hundred things to get a working Ubuntu on the Apalis T30, and now I am seeking for help.
Thanks for your time,
