Sorry, a bit off topic for this thread.
I am at ubuntu 17 on my Vm host right now, that works fine with the TX2, will have my Xavier on monday and thinking off updating the vm to ubuntu 18, will that still work with my TX2 (unofficaly) ?
I want to keep the ability to use bothe boards from the host :/
With a VM wouldn’t you want to create another one specifically for the Xavier? I used to use my training development machine as the host, but I learned a hard lesson when a Jetpack for the TX2 messed something up. This was before I was using containers for everything.
A VM is never “supported”. It doesn’t mean a VM won’t work, but you might have some VM work ahead of you.
On the other hand, JetPack, in previous versions, was not intended for Ubuntu 18.04. You might get parts of an older JetPack release to work on 17.04 or 18.04. JetPack4 was not yet released for other (non-Xavier) platforms, but presumably when JetPack4+ (non-developer preview) is actually released to include other Jetson models I suspect 18.04 will work from that point forward for any Jetson which can be flashed (this might mean a new JetPack4 is released with an older L4T on a TX2, or perhaps both the TX2 and Xavier will both have an L4T R31+). I am only guessing.
