R32.3.1 tx2-4g deepstream install

This is in the README from deepstream_sdk_v4.0.2_jetson.tbz2. But trying to load cuda will fail with disk space problems.

df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mmcblk0p1 14G 9.4G 3.7G 73% /
none 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev

How can I get deepstream to work on the tx2-4g

Additional components required on the target

To successfully use the DeepStream SDK, the following additional
components must be installed and set up on the target system:

  • CUDA (10.0)
  • TensorRT (6.0+)
  • OpenCV (3.3.1)
  • VisionWorks (1.6)
    Install these packages using JetPack SDK Manager.


Please refer to this wiki for how to reduce disk usage on Jetson platform
Jetson/FAQ/BSP/RootFS Reduction - eLinux.org

Remember this is a tx2-4g, I can’t even get the packages on the machine to use the FAQ.

THE FAQ only addresses how to free up space after you have the packages installed, MY problem the packages won’t install.


But your problem is space usage, am i right or not?

My problem is that cuda needs more disk space to install than I have on my tx2-4g

That’s why i suggest you refer the FAQ to deduce the space usage.
