We have implemented two ways to get the driver and install it in your NVIDIA Jetson platforms. One way is by downloading a debian depending on your system. Or patching the kernel and building the kernel if you want to make any kind of modifications. You can check this RidgeRun Developer Wiki to find a guide in order to install the driver in your system. RidgeRun is widely proud to help the developer community by releasing this driver publicly.
