When I originally set up the TX2 I was able to go through the installation without errors and get to where I had source code CUDA samples that I could compile and run on the target. I then foolishly decided to try to get NSight Eclipse running on my Ubuntu 16.04 host which clobbered my machine and force me to reinstall Ubuntu (not the topic I want to discuss right now, but just giving some background info).
I decided to give up on NSight go back to what I had originally working on the target. Unfortunately, I have not been able to do that. I downloaded a jetpack (not positive its the same one I used on the first install which worked). I ran it which caused it to install code on the host and then reimage the target through forced recovery as I did at the very beginning. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get all the way through without some obscure errors that seem to vary depending on what I try to do to fix it.
First, I was getting a missing CUDA key problem asking me to run apt-key on the host, which I did, but I then get other errors talking about missing libraries of various kinds. When I was finally able to get far enough along to get a CUDA samples directory, it did not have source and make files with it, but only had compiled samples which don’t seem to run.
I’m looking for a simple link that says “download this file and it will install everything correctly on your host and your TX2 without errors”. The file I have been using that is causing me all sorts of grief is JetPack-L4T-3.3-linux-x64_b39.run. I would copy and paste the errors into here but XTerm does not allow cut and paste. Whoo hoo for linux. I’m thinking that maybe I am using the wrong file which I picked out of a list of dozens of files. Would like something on the web site that says “if you have TX2, then use this file” instead of guessing. Thanks,
