New 5.17 kernel build for NVDEC


It looks like nvidia has chosen to insert NVDEC support in the linux 5.17 kernel. Is there a way to build a new kernel or is there a new image for the jetson nano coming soon?

We will check this with teams and update. But if your use-case is targeting for production, we would suggest use Jetpack releases. The releases are well verified and have stable software quality.

Please refer to our roadmap:
Jetson Software Roadmap for 2H-2021 and 2022

For Jetson Nano, it is supported in Jetpack 4 and stays in Kernel 4.9.
