I installed SDK Manager 18.104.22.16844 on WSL and it starts normally. But can not see Xavier NX development kit, despite J9-J10 jumper is set, and USB J15 connected. The message is “Could not detect a board”. ‘lsusb’ reports only:
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
So looks like an USB issue, but i can’t handle it.
Can someone provide an advise as common search can’t help?
SDK Manager 22.214.171.12444 x86-64 WSL could not detect Xavier NX board
VMs often fail USB and each needs its own USB configuration. You’d have to figure out that VM’s USB configuration. However, WSL2 won’t work even if you figure that out due to missing loopback support. Someone on the forums mentioned that loopback can be added to WSL2, but this is definitely not trivial and would require some expertise. You’d also have to make sure the disk space is formatted as
ext4. You are far better off with a native Ubuntu install (e.g., dual boot).
Most probably won’t work. You will need a bare metal Ubuntu on a physical PC hardware in order to have reliable operation. This can be an older and/or slower machine - something in the order of Atom J4125 is enough, but it must be amd64/x86-64.
Incidentally, when Jetsons first came out and did not have JetPack, I used Fedora. When Ubuntu became required, I added this to a dual core Atom laptop (10"). I think a mechanical calculator was faster, but it did work if I kept hitting the “ok to continue” button when a pop-up said it wasn’t responding and did I want to cancel :P
Thank you very much guys,
In the end i figured it out - bridging WSL to Xavier NX USB is needed.
It is well decribed on the link Windows Subsystem for Linux :: NVIDIA SDK Manager Documentation
