One of my backlog projects was to power up the Jetson Nano 2GB development platform. Nothing is less complicated than it seems so first I had to upgrade the KVM switch to 4 ports (from 2). Of course I ran to Amazon and bought the wrong one (mouse & keyboard input, no USB hub), oh well. I'll manage without sound until the replacement arrives.

O/S all loaded (L4T), RPI camera installed and I'm ready for some training videos. I had a fresh 32GB microSD card available, but I suspect I'll need to clone that over to a larger capacity card.Β 

Once again, stepping through a project generates a couple more! Kind of a fun hobby, it is self-sustaining!

I'm no data scientist or programmer, let's see who learns faster: man or machine 😀Β

Well after 6 months I can't say I have nade much progress. Installed a fan, of course after falling into the 12v trap I finally replaced it with a 5v version. No, I did not have the right size screws either.

Now debating how to upgrade to latest Jetpack release. Overly complicated, but, the various software installs I did tell me I might want to keep that to a minumum going forward if I'll take the easy roday and reflash the SD card every time.

I switched the RPI camera to another project, added a spare Logitech C270 (fully supported). I tried the USB camera via the KVM switch, it seemed to find the device in the OS but applications could not recognize it. Not an issue, I don't need to share a camera in that work area anways.

Reagrdless of software / OS currency, it's "ready" for AI/ML tinkering. Probably more ready than I am.Β
