SDK Manager Flashing is failing with libvisionworks

Hi,

I am trying to install L4T image on Xavier SDK. I have the SDK manager v4.3 on my host machine. The procedure fails due to libvisionworks. I have chosen the Download and Install paths on a external drive, hopefully that should
not create any problems.

The log is below:

Any help to debug the issue is much appreciated.

If you don’t use visionworks, it won’t cause any problem.

If you want to target why it happens, you can:
Check whether libvisionworks deb exist.
ls /media/imperiumdrive/MyPassport/vortex/Downloads/libvisionworks*

Thanks. I do see the libvisionworks deb packages:

/media/imperiumdrive/MyPassport/vortex/Downloads/libvisionworks-repo_1.6.0.500n_amd64.deb
/media/imperiumdrive/MyPassport/vortex/Downloads/libvisionworks-repo_1.6.0.500n_arm64.deb
/media/imperiumdrive/MyPassport/vortex/Downloads/libvisionworks-sfm-repo_0.90.4_amd64.deb
/media/imperiumdrive/MyPassport/vortex/Downloads/libvisionworks-sfm-repo_0.90.4_arm64.deb
/media/imperiumdrive/MyPassport/vortex/Downloads/libvisionworks-tracking-repo_0.88.2_amd64.deb
/media/imperiumdrive/MyPassport/vortex/Downloads/libvisionworks-tracking-repo_0.88.2_arm64.deb

Unfortunately this visionworks error is stalling the complete installation procedure. Is there a way to bypass this?

Thanks again.

Hi,

Could you try to manually run these command to see if works?

sudo apt-get update;
sudo apt-get -y install libvisionworks=1.6.0.500n* libvisionworks-dev=1.6.0.500n* libvisionworks-samples=1.6.0.500n*

Thanks.

Thanks.

Hello,

Unfortunately not. The deb files are not found when I run the below commands:
sudo apt-get update;
sudo apt-get -y install libvisionworks=1.6.0.500n* libvisionworks-dev=1.6.0.500n* libvisionworks-samples=1.6.0.500n*

The output of these commands is what I posted above.

I am on Ubuntu 18,04. Everything worked fine earlier on the same setup.

Are you execute these commands on your X86 host?
Your ‘ls’ result shows libvisionworks for Jetson is there, but no libvisionworks for X86.

If you want to solve the problem on Jetson, you can scp these deb to Jetson and dpkg -i them.
But if you don’t use libvisionworks*, you can just ignore them.
It will not cause side effects.

Yes the problem is on the Host. Anyway, I am ok to ignore the Visionworks install on the Host, but the Flashing procedure to the Jetson also fails:

Is the account you are using with sdkmanager able to run in root?

I have the same problem as the OP on SDK Manager 1.1.0.6343, when trying to install JetPack 4.3 on a target. My account is able to sudo on my host, and the account on the target is able to sudo on the target. My VisionWorks downloads on the host show that I have 500n and 501 for both amd64 and arm64 (below).

In order to get apt-cache showpkg libvisionworks-dev on the host to show both version 500n and 501 entries, I had to rebuild the apt cache using the instructions here. However, even after that, I got an error that:

10:30:04 ERROR : VisionWorks on Host : E: Packages were downgraded and -y was used without --allow-downgrades.

In order to work around that, I had to do sudo apt remove -y libvisionworks\* on the host. I was then able to install some of VisionWorks, but still got several errors:

10:35:52 ERROR : VisionWorks on Host : E: The repository 'file:/var/visionworks-sfm-repo Release' no longer has a Release file.
10:36:33 ERROR : VisionWorks on Host : E: The repository 'file:/var/visionworks-tracking-repo Release' no longer has a Release file.

The installation of VisionWorks still reports an error.

Also, I do not have a checkbox to skip just VisionWorks for some reason:

Any ideas? Is this perhaps an sdkmanager bug? Has sdkmanager perhaps gotten out of sync with the package repositories?

Thanks for your help!

(Note: I also see failures when trying to install packages on the target, but I am keeping this post to VisionWorks to stay on-topic.)

I was able to install visionworks on the host! I ran:

$ sudo apt purge libvisionworks 'libvisionworks-*'

and then re-ran sdkmanager. The installation succeeded.

Edit On the target, CUDA failed installation. I ran

$ sudo apt --fix-broken install

and then manually ran the ~/tmp_NV_L4T_CUDA_TARGET_POST_INSTALL_COMP.sh script, which succesfully completed the CUDA installation.

Thanks to Michael Herrmann for this post, which gave me the idea of using apt purge.

Thanks a ton!

If this problem occurs, configure your host machine
to use a static IPv4 address of 192.168.55.100 with netmask 255.255.255.0 and
no gateway or DNS servers.

cd ~/Download/nvidia/sdkm_downloads/
ar -x libvisionworks-repo_1.6.0.500n_amd64.deb

cd var/visionworks-repo
sudo apt install ./libvisionworks_1.6.0.500n_amd64.deb
