What Linux kernel version should I use for Deepstream 6.1?

Please provide complete information as applicable to your setup.

• Hardware Platform (Jetson / GPU):GeForce RTX 3090
• DeepStream Version: 6.1
• TensorRT Version:
• NVIDIA GPU Driver Version (valid for GPU only): 510
• Issue Type( questions, new requirements, bugs): question

The doc mention to use Ubuntu 20.04. There are multiple point releases for Ubuntu 20.04 with different GA kernel version:

Ubuntu 20.04.0 & Ubuntu 20.04.1: 5.4 kernel
Ubuntu 20.04.2: 5.8 kernel
Ubuntu 20.04.3: 5.11 kernel
Ubuntu 20.04.4: 5.13 kernel


It says here that:

It is advised to keep Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 LTS with the kernel flavour picked during installation. It can be either HWE or OEM flavour. Changing to track GA kernel may result in regressions of performance, hardware support, and certified features.

In my case, I installed Ubuntu 20.04.0, which comes with GA kernel version 5.4 and during installation, it’s automatically upgraded to HWE kernel version 5.13 which is the GA kernel version of the latest Ubuntu 20.04 point release (as of today).

Do I have to freeze/downgrade to kernel version at 5.4 for Deepstream 6.1?

The influence is on GPU driver installation, which will build upon kernel. you can go ahead to see what will happen.

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue anymore.
