Systemd multitarget target with TTY login

I have a Jetson Orin Nano devkit. with L4T 35.5.0. I want to set it up as a server, without running X, but having the ability to plug in a screen and log in in text mode for emergencies.

Running systemct set-default multitarget does almost everything I want, except for I can only log in through SSH. The connected screen is blank.

According to this post, an earlier board would only display the text over HDMI, but not over DP. The Orin Nano only has DP.

Is it not possible to do what I want to do?

All the hardware is in working order, the screen works under But then, switching to a different virtual console (ctrl+alt+F3) sends the screen to sleep.

  1. You need to understand the difference between Orin Nano and Nano… One is the latest SoC and another one is a SoC from 6 years ago.
    Your post is for Jetson Nano. Not Jetson Orin Nano.

  2. Orin on rel-35 does not support console mode. Thus, this behavior is expected.
