Bug Description

This bug is to track changes needed to be able to build jammy Ubuntu Core images for arm64+tegra-igx to support hardware based on NVIDIA Tegra SoCs. NB some initial support had already been backported; see LP #2015644.

[ Impact ]

 * This allows building missing image flavors for the NVIDIA Tegra families of hardware, notably Ubuntu Core images for the tegra-igx subarch.
 * This should also allow building of classic ISO installer images for tegra-igx, albeit that's a lesser priority.

[ Test Plan ]

 * Changes to livecd-rootfs were tested locally and can be tested from the -proposed package by building a Core image for tegra-igx as follows:
sudo apt install livecd-rootfs
mkdir build
cd build

rm -rf auto local config
rm -f livecd.*.model-assertion
mkdir -p auto
for s in config build clean; do ln -s /usr/share/livecd-rootfs/live-build/auto/$s auto/; done
lb clean --purge
export PROJECT=ubuntu-core ARCH=arm64 SUBARCH=tegra-igx SUITE=jammy IMAGEFORMAT=ubuntu-image CHANNEL=edge
lb config
sudo -E lb build

[ Where problems could occur ]

 * Changes are relatively light, but in the case of a regression for instance due to broken logic, this could break existing image builds, in which case an older livecd-rootfs could be reuploaded.

[ Other Info ]

 * These images are still being developed and its possible further changes are needed as we iterate through the maturity of the image.

Hello Loïc, or anyone else affected,

Accepted livecd-rootfs into jammy-proposed. The package will build now and be available at in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, what testing has been performed on the package and change the tag from verification-needed-jammy to verification-done-jammy. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-jammy. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

Worked fine, model assertion is correct and manifest is as expected:

I also booted the resulting Core image on a Jetson AGX Orin, I had to try a couple of times, not sure why, perhaps quirks with the BIOS and me trying to boot from a SD card reader, but eventually I got the installer prompt from Ubuntu Core, albeit I didn't manage to progress it, I think it demonstrates a good starting point for the image – might still have to address the kernel/userspace etc.
