WHAT YOU WILL LEARN?

1- Including the Kernel Files in Jetson OS Image

2- Installing the Jetson OS

3- Installing the Jetson SDK Components

ENVIRONMENT

Hardware: DSBOARD-AGX

Host OS: Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS


In this tutorial, we will install JetPack-5 for DSBOARD-AGX. First, we will include our Image, DTB & pinmux files in Jetson OS image. Then, we will install the Jetson OS into the DSBOARD-AGX. Finally, we will install the Jetson SDK components into it.


Attention: If you want to transfer the root file-system to an external drive and it has another JetPack version root file system, please format it before starting this blog post.

Including the Kernel Files in Jetson OS Image

Open the NVIDIA SDK Manager. Select the correct JetPack version for Target Operating System and “Jetson AGX Orin modules” for Target Hardware (The “Host Machine” components are not required). Then, continue to Step 2.


Choose only “Jetson Linux”, accept the terms & conditions and continue to Step 3.


The SDK Manager will ask the username’s password. Fill it and continue.


A few seconds later...


After the Jetson OS has created, the SDK Manager asks the Jetson module’s flashing style. Just skip it and exit from the SDK Manager.


Open the target HW image folder.


For JetPack-5.0.2

          AGX Orin: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.0.2_Linux_JETSON_AGX_ORIN_TARGETS/

For JetPack-5.1

          AGX Orin: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1_Linux_JETSON_AGX_ORIN_TARGETS/

For JetPack-5.1.1

          AGX Orin: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1.1_Linux_JETSON_AGX_ORIN_TARGETS/

For JetPack-5.1.2

          AGX Orin: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1.2_Linux_JETSON_AGX_ORIN_TARGETS/

For JetPack-5.1.3

          AGX Orin: ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack_5.1.3_Linux_JETSON_AGX_ORIN_TARGETS/


For JetPack-5.0.2:

        Download the BSP files from GitHub link and extract it (AGX Orin)

For JetPack-5.1:

        Download the BSP files from GitHub link and extract it (AGX Orin)

For JetPack-5.1.1:

        Download the BSP files from GitHub link and extract it (AGX Orin)

For JetPack-5.1.2:

        Download the BSP files from GitHub link and extract it (AGX Orin)

For JetPack-5.1.3:

        Download the BSP files from GitHub link and extract it (AGX Orin)


Copy all files from the extracted folder to the target HW image folder.


Open a terminal from the "Linux_for_Tegra" folder and create the system binaries with these commands below:


sudo ./tools/l4t_flash_prerequisites.sh
sudo ./apply_binaries.sh


Apply the interface configurations with the following commands below:


cd ..
sudo ./replace_bsp_files.sh
cd Linux_for_Tegra/


Hint: If you want to configure your username-password & hostname with default settings, you can create user without the Ubuntu installation wizard. To do this, the user generation command structure should be:


sudo tools/l4t_create_default_user.sh -u {USERNAME} -p {PASSWORD} -a -n {HOSTNAME} --accept-license

For example (username:"nvidia", password:"nvidia", device-name:"nvidia-agx-orin"):


sudo tools/l4t_create_default_user.sh -u nvidia -p nvidia -a -n nvidia-agx-orin --accept-license

Jetson OS Installation

Connect the recovery USB (between installer PC & DSBOARD-AGX's recovery USB) and power connection of your DSBOARD-AGX.


While the DSBOARD-AGX's power connector plugged in,

• press reset & recovery buttons together

• release reset button

• release the recovery button after 3 seconds later. 

This will set it to Recovery mode.


Then, type “lsusb” and check the device connected in Recovery mode. 

• "0955:7023 NVidia Corp." for AGX Orin 64GB

• "0955:7223 NVidia Corp." for AGX Orin 32GB


For AGX Orin, flash the Jetson OS with this script below:


sudo ./flash.sh jetson-agx-orin-devkit mmcblk0p1


A few minutes later …


At the end of the script, the device will reboot. Complete your Ubuntu installation wizard (if you have not created a user with tools/l4t_create_default_user.sh script file) from the DSBOARD-AGX (language, keyboard type, location, username & password etc.).


To avoid kernel update with "apt upgrade" or "apt-get upgrade" commands, please follow this guide on the Jetson module.

Jetson SDK Components Installation

[Optional] Delete LibreOffice & ThunderBird packages (if you don’t need) and remove the unnecessary packages to increase the free space. To do this, type these commands to the DSBOARD-AGX side:


sudo apt remove -y libreoffice* thunderbird*
sudo apt autoremove -y
sudo apt clean


Connect the DSBOARD-AGX to the Internet. 

Open the NVIDIA SDK Manager. Select the correct JetPack version for Target Operating System and “Jetson AGX Orin modules” for Target Hardware (The “Host Machine” components are not required. Additional SDKs (DeepStream) are optional). 


Then, continue to Step 2.


Unselect the "Jetson Linux" and choose “Jetson Runtime Components” (“Jetson SDK Components” are optional. It depends on your use case).

Accept the terms & conditions and continue to Step 3.


The SDK Manager will ask the username’s password. Fill it and continue.


Type the IP address, username and password of Jetson AGX Orin module and install the SDK Components.


At the end of the installation, the DSBOARD-AGX becomes ready. 

Attention: If you will have unmet dependencies after the SDK components installed, please open a terminal from the Jetson side and type the following command below. This will fix the problem.


sudo apt install -y libxmlb2 ubuntu-advantage-desktop-daemon libfwupdplugin5 libpciaccess-dev
