Torchvision build from source failing on Orin NX for ISAAC ROS

I am trying to build torchvision from source in ISAAC ROS dev container on Jetson NX running Jetpack 5.1.2. This error pops up during building and I could not solve it.

Hi @kishoresaravanan2002,
I have seen that before and for me the solution was to upgrade pip. Try:

pip3 install --upgrade pip

If its the latest version you can try to use another version of python with a venv. This one is the one I normally use to handle multiple python install without messing with the default installation.

Upgraded pip still not working. Is it something with the c++ version?

I found this Jetson orin nx build torchvision from source fail - #4 by AastaLLL

Looking at that post the errors you are getting are pretty much the same. You can try using the l4t containers, or try upgrading cmake:

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
git clone --branch v3.18.0
cd cmake/
./bootstrap && make -j6

Check the version that the torchvision repo wants.
And update gcc and g++, like over here, that they use alternatives to handle multiple versions.


I think it needs C++ 17. In the container, I have C++ 14. How do I upgrade it?

You can try using g++ v11, since as I understand it on here, its compatible with c++ 17. You can install it following this guide. Basically:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test
sudo apt-get install g++-11
g++-11 --version
