Just as an additional note. I’ve tried following Kyles steps with no Graphics card plugged in.
I have the Kernel version 5.10.65 on a Jetson Xavier with no external GPU.
And when I get to the step of running the
.run file I’m greeted with warnings:
WARNING: You do not appear to have an NVIDIA GPU supported by the 470.74 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver installed in this system. For
further details, please see the appendix SUPPORTED NVIDIA GRAPHICS CHIPS in the README available on the Linux driver download
page at www.nvidia.com.
Continuing along I’m told there are other drivers available, but I’ll Ignore those in favour of Kyles version.
An alternate method of installing the NVIDIA driver was detected. (This is usually a package provided by your distributor.) A driver
installed via that method may integrate better with your system than a driver installed by nvidia-installer.
Please review the message provided by the maintainer of this alternate installation method and decide how to proceed:
Continue installation Abort installation
The NVIDIA driver provided by Ubuntu can be installed by launching the "Software & Updates" application, and by selecting the NVIDIA
driver from the "Additional Drivers" tab.
This then runs into a wall where I need a different CC version. I’ll continue with the version mismatch for now.
The CC version check failed:
The kernel was built with aarch64-buildroot-linux-gnu-gcc.br_real (Buildroot 2020.08) 9.3.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.33.1, but the
current compiler version is cc (Ubuntu 9.4.0-1ubuntu1~20.04.1) 9.4.0.
This may lead to subtle problems; if you are not certain whether the mismatched compiler will be compatible with your kernel, you may
wish to abort installation, set the CC environment variable to the name of the compiler used to compile your kernel, and restart
Ignore CC version check Abort installation
Selecting Ignore results in a warning
WARNING: Ignoring CC version mismatch:
The kernel was built with aarch64-buildroot-linux-gnu-gcc.br_real (Buildroot 2020.08) 9.3.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.33.1, but
the current compiler version is cc (Ubuntu 9.4.0-1ubuntu1~20.04.1) 9.4.0.
And then an all out failure:
ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong
or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if
another driver, such as nouveau, is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA GPU(s),
or no NVIDIA GPU installed in this system is supported by this NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release.
Please see the log entries 'Kernel module load error' and 'Kernel messages' at the end of the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for more information.
I guess I’ll need to change my CC version and give an update on my progress.
