TensorFlow-gpu installation in Xavier

I was trying to install tensorflow-gpu. My preinstalled jetpack version is 4.2 so the corresponding CUDA is 10.2. I was trying to find the right tensorflow version for CUDA 10.2, so I found the following table:

Therefore, I tried this command:

sudo pip3 install --extra-index-url https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/redist/jp/v42 tensorflow-gpu==1.15.0+nv19.11

I got the following error message:

I also found this post here and it looks like only tensorflow-gpu 1.14.0 is avaiable with Jetpack 4.2 but it’s compatiable with CUDA 10.0 only, not 10.2.

I try to avoid upgrading Jetpack itself. Is there any way to install the compatible tensorflow with Jetpack4.2 and CUDA 10.2?

Hi,

We can download the tensorflow_gpu-1.15.0%2Bnv19.11-cp36-cp36m-linux_aarch64.whl with below command:
Could you give it a try?

$ sudo pip3 install --extra-index-url https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/redist/jp/v42 'tensorflow-gpu<2'

Thanks.

Hi,

This command ran successfully. Then I ran pip list, and found the following pkgs related and they are still 1.14.0:

tensorboard                   1.14.0
tensorflow-estimator          1.14.0
tensorflow-gpu                1.14.0+nv19.10

I got the followings after I import tensorflow as tf:
>>> import tensorflow

Hi,

Please noted that we stop to provide python2.7 package for a while.
The command will install a python3.6 package.

So you should check it with pip3 list.
And also import the library with the python3.

Thanks.
