Sdkmanager incompatible with ubuntu 20.04?

Hello,

I’m trying to use sdkmanager.

NVIDIA SDK Manager | NVIDIA Developer tell me:
ubuntu 20.04 is compatible to the host requirements.

I have a ubuntu 20.04. sdkmanager failed to flash anything on my TX2 NX because 20.04 is not supported.

Authenticating with NVIDIA server...
Login succeeded.
Loading user information...
User information loaded successfully.
Loading server data...
Server data loaded successfully.
Available options are:

 Jetson 4.6
sdkmanager --cli install --logintype devzone --product Jetson --version 4.6 --targetos Linux --host --target JETSON_AGX_XAVIER_TARGETS --flash all
 * Available on ubuntu1604, ubuntu1804
sdkmanager --cli install --logintype devzone --product Jetson --version 4.6 --targetos Linux --host --target JETSON_XAVIER_NX_TARGETS --flash all
 * Available on ubuntu1604, ubuntu1804
sdkmanager --cli install --logintype devzone --product Jetson --version 4.6 --targetos Linux --host --target JETSON_TX2_TARGETS --flash all
 * Available on ubuntu1604, ubuntu1804
sdkmanager --cli install --logintype devzone --product Jetson --version 4.6 --targetos Linux --host --target JETSON_TX1_TARGETS --flash all
 * Available on ubuntu1604, ubuntu1804
sdkmanager --cli install --logintype devzone --product Jetson --version 4.6 --targetos Linux --host --target JETSON_NANO_TARGETS --flash all
 * Available on ubuntu1604, ubuntu1804

Maybe sdkmanager is compatible but there is no SDK compatible for NX with ubuntu2004 host?

Is it possible to work with it on ubuntu2004 ?

Hello @richard.buchmann,

I haven’t test that same environment you have, but maybe if you can try to use a docker container for the sdk manager and see if it helps:

Thank you Roberto,

In the first place, I tried using docker but sdkmanager failed from docker. So I tried to use my host in ubuntu 20.04… :D

See:

In the mean time, I succeed to flash using docker. So… I have a workaround.

Thank you.
