Flash Xavier on Linux Mint

I’m running LinuxMint 19.3 and with default setup, sdkmanager won’t work and flashing will fail.

Download sdkmanager form NVidia’s website and install it

Make a back of you lsb-release file

sudo cp /etc/lsb-release /etc/lsb-release_backup

Modify the /etc/lsb-release file to make sdkmanager know it’s an Ubuntu based system

DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=18.04.4
DISTRIB_CODENAME=tricia
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia"

Now install these packages

apt install binfmt-support
apt install qemu-user-static

If qemu-user-static was previously installed, re-configure it

dpkg-reconfigure qemu-user-static

Now you can run sdkmanager and flash your tegra devices.
