Read the code for setup.py and saw the --dev command flag that’d let setup proceed past the Zed step.
Running that now so that we can at least set up other elements like the gimbal and such.
Going to need an answer about this ASAP though.
Suspect issues with Docker because it seems to be Docker that’s torching the Jetson’s wifi.
Hey @tkiesel I don’t think we’re doing anything with Docker that should interfere with WiFi. Would you happen to have a spare micro SD card lying around? It sounds like we don’t know that the hardware is 100% operational and one suggestion I would have for that would be to flash a different SD Card with the vanilla Jetson SD Card image and see if you can get a successful wifi connection. That would help isolate enough variables to see if your issues are purely hardware or software related.
If you can get the wifi (or really just internet) issues sorted, id recommend you double check that your git repo with the AVR software is on the main branch and up-to-date and try re-running the setup.py.
Other than that I’d have to defer to @nathan for more insights.
Thanks for the info. I used a vanilla Jetson image and verified that neither this year’s Jetson Nano nor last year’s Jetson nano are addressing the wifi card. Identical lspci
and dmesg | grep “tegra-pcie”
outputs on both Jetsons and on both SSD images on those Jetsons, so I think our wifi card is toast.
What are the emergency options to procure a new wifi card?
Well, you can try firstname.lastname@example.org, but we are within day(s) of the next competition so I would assume amazon (this one shows it can be delivered tomorrow ) or maybe a usb wifi card from Best Buy would be faster.
If you are competing at Arlington this weekend, we may have some at the support booth.
As for why the Zed camera doesn’t show up, that’s hard to diagnose. Are you using the cable that came with the Zed camera? Other cables we’ve found generally don’t work. Otherwise, I recommend trying other USB ports and plugging it in/unplugging it a few times.
We ran into this exact same problem. I can almost guarantee you it is the cable, it has nothing to do with the software most likely. Make sure you are using a USB 3.0 cable to connect the ZED to the Jetson. It’s supplied with a 2.0 which does not work. The instant we made the upgrade it worked.
The real solution to this was very frustrating when we figured it out. It turns out that the USB C end of the cable only works with one orientation. You should see a symbol on one side and that needs to face out.
We’ve tried the Zed cable, and knew about the orientation. It doesn’t work (despite the hardware clearly being visible in lsusb )
@Tig Will try your suggestion. I’ve tried every USB-C cable I or my kiddos have incl. my own phone charging cable, and the blue usb-c that are used for charging the Sphero RVR. No dice on any cabling so far, but I’ll see if I can Best Buy a cable tonight.
@bhanner-bell I picked up that ASUS part on my way home last night, but sadly there are no drivers for it on the Jetson Nano. I’m hoping that you all have a Jetson Wifi card there tomorrow!
