Vision works installation on TX1 fails

Hi all,

for my application I want to install Vision Works. I have downloaded the latest Jet Pack 2.3
In the terminal, I change the directory to ~/Downloads/VisionWorks and run
chmod +x

After typing ./ in the terminal, the terminal prints
Creating directory _installer
Verifying archive integrity… All good.
Uncompressing JetPack 100%

Then I get the following xmessage:
Error: JetPack must be run onx86_64 HOST platform. Detected aarch64 platform.

The run-file is on the TX1, not an laptop or PC.

What am I missing? Thanks for your response.

Hi ManuKause

it sounds like you are installing Jetpack on the JTX1, which is meant to be installed on your laptop or desktop, but not on your Jetson TX1.

Take a look at the video in the link below. Even though the video showcases Jetpack 2.0, it should be the same for Jetpack 2.3, but I would suggest reading or follow along with the manual for Jetpack 2.3 because the menu options have changed a little. But in principle, the video showcases the correct overall procedure.



One common point of confusion for new users is that JetPack itself is not Jetson software…it is a front end to installing things. @Galto2000 hit the nail on the head.

Thank you both for your answers. I will install the JetPack on my laptop, like in in the video.
