Arducam Driver Package for A603: No DTB found runtime error

I have the A603 board from Seeedstudio with the Orin NX 16GB module and I have flashed using this guide. I am trying to install the Arducam driver package so that I can use the OV9281 stereo camera (SKU: B0337). I get an error that pertains to the DTB file saying it is not found for the Nvidia Dev kit, which is not what I am using.

From the repo, I downloaded the appropriate Orin NX package (5.10.104 & 35.3.1), which is confirmed by the outputs:

alex@orin:~$ cat /etc/nv_tegra_release
# R35 (release), REVISION: 3.1, GCID: 32827747, BOARD: t186ref, EABI: aarch64, DATE: Sun Mar 19 15:19:21 UTC 2023

alex@orin:~$ uname -a
Linux orin 5.10.104-tegra #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Apr 3 11:43:47 CST 2023 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Upon installing with:

sudo dpkg -i arducam-nvidia-l4t-kernel-t234-nx-5.10.104-tegra-35.3.1-20230725012901_arm64.deb

I get the output with error:

I suspect this is an issue where the install script is looking for the DTB file for the Orin NX Developer Kit in particular. I have the DTB files for the A603 board (tegra234-p3767-0000-p3509-a02.dtb and tegra234-p3767-0001-p3509-a02.dtb) from flashing the system, so I believe the solution is to point the arducam driver script to these files. Placing these in /boot/dtb has no effect.

Here is a pastebin of the dmesg

What can I do to install the Arducam drivers on the A603 where the error in installing is due to a DTB conflict? I have the DTB files from when I flashed the system, so I think I need to just specify these files in some manner for the arducam script to utilize which I have failed at thus far.

Any insight is appreciated. Thanks

I was able to bypass the error that I got when installing the arducam kernel package by using the SDK Manager to flash the jetson.

I am able to ls /dev/video* and see the video devices of the stereo camera. However a new issue persists: whenever I access these devices in any way (either by ffplay /dev/video0 or by running the script), I get a significant kernel issue:

Message from syslogd@ubuntu at Aug 28 15:49:16 ...
 kernel:[  266.929512] Internal error: Oops: 96000004 [#1] PREEMPT SMP

I am a bit unfamiliar with DTB. Does this mean that my device tree overlay is insufficient? Do I need to modify this to either add a CSI input or to add the particular camera I am using? Again, this is a new realm for me. I have the DTB files that came with the A603 (tegra234-p3767-0000-p3509-a02.dtb and tegra234-p3767-0001-p3509-a02.dtb). Perhaps this is the missing component.

After flashing the A603 with SDK Manager and installing the arducam driver package, I noticed the splash boot screen states “1: Custom Header Config: ”. This indicates to me that the driver installed correctly and that my camera is acknowledged. I think I am close to getting this camera and the arducam scripts to work.

@Edward, I see you are a part of the support team. Could you provide insight for me please or page someone who might have some suggestions for me? Thank you for your time.
