Zed/Zed2 camera issues with Jetpack 6.0 and zed sdk for jetpack 6.0

I have had issues getting both the Zed and Zed 2 working with a Jetson Orin Nano from waveshare working. I get a bunch if I2C issues when I used dmseg. Additionally, when the cameras are attached at boot up they prevent the OS from Booting. I have attached the camera to a USB-C hub plugged into the USB-C port of the jetson, and oddly it kind of works through this at a VGA setting, anything higher resolution has performance issues. dmesg below from ZED_Diagnostic

When testing a custom kernel, it is recommended that you create a backup of

the original kernel and add a new entry to this file so that the device can

fallback to the original kernel. To do this:

1, Make a backup of the original kernel

sudo cp /boot/Image /boot/Image.backup

2, Copy your custom kernel into /boot/Image

3, Uncomment below menu setting lines for the original kernel

4, Reboot

Hi @istvan
Welcome to the Stereolabs community.

The ZED X Driver does not support the Jetpack 6 Developer Preview version.

We planned to release the ZED X Driver for JP6 as soon as NVIDIA launched the first stable production release.

Hi! Now that Nvidia has launched its first production release for JP6, do you have a timeline for the ZED driver? Thank you very much for your support!

We are working on that.
We plan to release compatible ZED SDK and ZED X Driver in the next few weeks.

Good to hear that. Thank you so much!

Will the ZED2 and ZED2i be getting JP6.0 support? Or just the ZED X?

Hi Myzhar,
The issue is that the USB3 port on the Waveshare Jetson Orin 8gb Nano developer board do not recognise the Zed2 camera. I have now used both Jetpack 6DP and recent release production version of Jetpack 6, with the same issue. The odd thing is I can get it slightly working using a USBC - hub with two USBC and 2 USB3 ports plug into the Orin USBC port , however performance than becomes an issue and when using the stereo labs depth viewer tools the camera need to be set to VGA mode.

Yes. All ZED cameras (2,2i, X, …)
