No HDMI signal output

Software Version
[*] DRIVE OS Linux 5.2.0

Target Operating System
[*] Linux

Hardware Platform
[*] NVIDIA DRIVE™ AGX Xavier DevKit (E3550)

Host Machine Version
[*] native Ubuntu 18.04

Hi! I have downloaded, created and flashed DRIVE AGX with DRIVE OS 5.2 based on the SDK manager.

Everything goes fine during the whole process and I did verify the installation by checking the “Repair/Uninstall” page and nothing abnormal.

However, my monitor received nothing from the XA-1 HDMI interface of DRIVE AGX after rebooting. I have tried:


(2)Check the system power and there is no problem about it, the fans and the LED indicators all work fine.

(3)Switch to XA-2, XA-3,XA-4, XB

(4)Check the cable and there is no problem about it because it works fine when connecting my host machine and my monitor.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @shaozhenlei,

Please refer to Finalize DRIVE AGX System Setup part in Install DRIVE with SDK Manager :: DRIVE Platform Installation Guide with NVIDIA SDK Manager for this topic. Thanks.

Thank you for replying @SteveNV .

I checked the “Enable Display” section and tried the first solution which is “sudo -b X -ac -noreset -nolisten tcp” and still no HDMI signal.

I can’t try the second solution because the target machine cannot access the internet, check my another issue: NetworkManager.service not found

Hi @shaozhenlei ,
After manually starting X server with this command, you should able to follow Building and Running the NvMedia Samples, run the sample applications on the target system, and see the display. Thanks.

Thank you for this answer, I believe this is the right solution.
However, I have already solved my network issue and applied the second way mentioned by the document, i.e., “apt-get install gdm3 ubuntu-unity-desktop”.
