I recently got a Jetson TK1 board for use in school. This is the first time I have worked with a board before and upon looking for startup guides, many say to install the Linux Driver Binary. However, after following the instructions to install the Linux Driver Binary and rebooted it, instead of going to the desktop UI, all that appears is a black screen. Is this a common issue and is there a way to fix it?
Do also make sure you are running the latest version (21.4). You can use the “JetPack” to erase and install everything from your Ubuntu PC conveniently.
One more additional note on video: The older VGA 9-pin connectors do not work, as they lack the DDC channel used to query the monitor. Even an adapter to 9-pin VGA will not work. DVI to HDMI and most others work fine.
As kulve told you, you can use Jetpack.
You can use the JetPack installer. Download and instructions located here: https://developer.nvidia.com/jetson-tk1-development-pack
