Thank you for this.

Can it be installed inside a virtualenv ?
which version of tensorflow is it?
I have installed the version 1.10 with whl should i uninstall before install that one?

Thank you

We only have TX2 package currently.
Sorry for the inconvenience.


Are we able to call the python conversion for tensorrt to make a plan from the jetson now?


TensorRT python API for Jetson is still not available.
But you can use the TF-TRT instead.

wrong comment please ignore


i try to install in python 3, in clear deploy.

after install pip in Tx2 using this:

but to install i want add --user in parameters

pip3 install --user --extra-index-url=https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/redist/jp33 tensorflow-gpu

if i don’t add this parameters receive any erros in permission to install numpy using this command.

I have installed tf for python 2.7 and i did had to use --user parameter to install it. So you should use --user parameter
PS: if you are planning to do training on tx2 i wouldn’t recommend it since Ram is a huge bottleneck and usually your training gets killed after a while
Good luck


Thanks so much, i didn’t no about this problem with the Ram, i will work with the cloud.

I am getting a File does not exist error.

Fresh install of jetpack 3.3 and pip. Python 2.7

Any thoughts, please?

Problem solved. Typo in command string copied from elsewhere.

[b]Invalid requirement: ‘–extra-index-url=https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/redist/jp33’

It looks like a path. File ‘–extra-index-url=https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/redist/jp33’ does not exist.[/b]



The path link is https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/redist/jp33/tensorflow-gpu/.

Please make sure you use the entire command in the comment#1.

pip install --extra-index-url=https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/redist/jp33 <b>tensorflow-gpu</b>


Hi, I received error message “TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for -=: ‘Retry’ and ‘int’”, when running above command. Is it something related to the package?

Thank you in advance.

Hi, mk.ikhwan88

Type error is caused by the pip and proxy on your environment.
You can check this topic for more information:

You can solve it by simply up-grating the pip version or unsetting the proxy.


yeah thanks a lot. But after install it how to I use tensorflow. In command tool, where I must director to use it.
