This refers to a file added by the apply_binaries.sh step when preparing a sample rootfs for flash (or in the case of a freshly arrived Jetson, activation of the nVidia-specific files from the “sudo ~/NVIDIA-INSTALLER/installer.sh” step…they do the same thing). If this is a brand new Jetson, just complete the installer.sh step. If not, continue reading.
Sometimes there are package updates on the Jetson which may overwrite or change the nVidia-specific files (“mostly” this doesn’t happen anymore). You can just manually unpack the archive of files directly onto the Jetson and it would repair this.
On your host PC, within the driver package is subdirectory “nv_tegra”. The file “nvidia_drivers.tgz2” has what you need. Copy this to your Jetson’s “/” directory. cd to “/”, and then do this:
bunzip2 < nvidia_drivers.tbz2 | tar xv
Reboot. Files should be in place. You can remove “/nvidia_drivers.tbz2” now if you want, or leave it for future unpack if the issue hits again.
