Python jetson module on yocto image


I would like to integrate the python modules jetson.utils and jetson.inference on my Yocto image for Jetson nano devkit 2gb before compiling but I don’t know how to add them. I can’t find any “recipe” containing them in the meta-tegra layer.


Hi @dadalen, I haven’t used Yocto before and and unfamiliar with how it works with installing stuff. Can you just build it from source?

Normally some scripts get called during the build process which install some dependencies from apt - my guess is you would need to change these as I don’t think Yocto has apt.

Hello @dusty_nv.
Yes, that’s what I’m trying to do, but I have different errors, especially on the dependencies present or not. That’s why I was wondering if there was a recipe to facilitate the installation of these modules.


Unfortunately there isn’t, support for Yocto isn’t something that has been on my radar before. FWIW, I would skip some of the dependencies like PyTorch, because those aren’t actually required for running the inference (just the training examples). Hopefully that makes it a bit easier.

Okay thanks I’ll do that and keep looking.

Thanks @dusty_nv
