So I am currently trying to set up the Nvidia Drive AGX Devkit for development/benchmark purposes. Right now I have all the pieces connected and the board is connected to a ubuntu host computer. However, for some reason, the sdkmanager on the host computer cannot detect the target Drive AGX devkit. But if I use “lsusb” command it does show the board is connected via USB. Can I get some advice to troubleshoot this? My Host machine is Ubuntu 20.04.2


Dear @shenyichen105,
You need to use ubuntu 18.04 to flash DRIVE OS 5.2.0. Please check system requirements at Getting Started: DRIVE OS 5.2.0 :: DRIVE Platform Installation Guide with NVIDIA SDK Manager
