NX DevKit Boot Process: First Impressions

PCIe/NVMe - we’re also working on getting a NVMe driver up for XNX, and we’re updating U-Boot to a recent upstream release (v2020.04) to bring in NVMe support on Nano, too. So you should be able to boot from NVMe in a future release on both Nano and XNX.

Are there any plans for AGX nvme boot? I copied my /usr /home /var/lib/docker/ and /tmp over to an ssd and it was working for a few months but this latest update left my system in an unbootable state with:

bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device

Official, tested, support for this would be very nice. A SD card or even emmc is very very slow in comparison.

Edit: the error seems unrelated to NVMe and my system boots now.

You can always put just the devtree, kernel and initrd to APP partition of sdcard and have rootfs on nvme. That’s what I’m doing and it works fine (initrd needs a small patch to honor rootwait for nvme).
