Hi all,

We have an opportunity to host a developer kit of the Nvidia Jetson AGX
Xavier board in the farm.



It has a recent 8-cores ARM CPU, 32 GB RAM, and a big GPU.  It's part of
the Tegra family.

If you are interested by this board, which OS would you prefer?
Tegra boards usually have good upstream support, so it should be possible
to run plain Debian or Ubuntu on it.  Nvidia also has a "Linux 4 Tegra"
distribution based on Ubuntu with specific software.

Regarding the GPU specifically: does anybody have a planned usage for it?
Will it be fine with the nouveau driver?

As a reminder, the goal of the farm is to support development /
compilation / portability / debug of free software, so this upcoming board
is *not* meant to mine cryptocurrencies or train deep learning models :-)
