Having the same issue

Are you using the Nvidia Jetson official carrier board? May you send us pictures of your jetson device? Back and front.

I have the same issue. I am trying to install ArduCAM driver on the 16 GB Jetson Xavier NX production module on the Dev Kit carrier board.

Which jetpack version are you using now?

Just as in the original post, I am using Jetpack 5.1.2 (L4T 35.4.1) which should be supported by the ArduCam driver.
I realized that I actually have a Xavier NX dev. kit module, so I am currently flashing that with JP 5.1.2, and will then see if I can install the driver on that one. But I am still interested in getting the driver installed on 16GB Xavier NX production module.

If you want to use your camera with your Jetson Nx without installing the Arducam driver, you can follow the link below to configure the Nvidia native imx477 camera driver.

Additionally, if you still want to install Arducam camera driver, please flash your Jetson Nx with JP 5.1.1(L4T 35.3.1)

@Dion The native Nvidia IMX477 camera driver only provides 4K resolution @ 20 FPS. The Arducam driver supports the same resolution @ 29 FPS. I need to run the camera at the highest resolution and preferably at the highest possible FPS.
As I mentioned before, I would try to install the Arducam driver on a 8GB Xavier NX dev. kit module (using JP 5.1.2) and that works without problems. So the driver should also work for the 16GB Xavier NX production module (given that they are both mounted on the dev. kit carrier board).
