Problem with NGC and Docker


I am trying to use TLT. I am following the official instructions.

I tried 2 options to install CLI: AMD64 and ARM64

  1. when I try AMD 64, I got error

$ wget && unzip && chmod u+x ngc
$ echo “export PATH="$PATH:$(pwd)"” >> ~/.bash_profile && source ~/.bash_profile
suryadi@nonaku:~/cli$ ./ngc
bash: ./ngc: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

  1. When I try ARM64, I successfully install CLI, generate API key, login and even successfully download the image using docker followng the procedure metioned here Transfer Learning Toolkit for Video Streaming Analytics | NVIDIA NGC

So I used “docker pull” to pull the image and then I used

sudo docker run --gpus all -it -v /home/robodel1/tlt-experiments:/workspace/tlt-experiments -p 8888:8888 /bin/bash

Here I get eror: "docker standard_init_linux.go:211: exec user process caused “exec format error”

Please advise smth.

I meet the same problem.

If you are getting the following error:
“cannot execute binary file: Exec format error”

You are downloading the wrong zip file which is not compatible with your OS.
get the AMD64 copy it should work and prompt you to put in the API key.

Hope it helps.
