[fedora-arm] Re: Fedora for Tegra / jetson nano : how good is it ?

I would like to know why a third party developers / community members don't have taken more seriously the tegra 210 platform to improve it when it has become old. I don't see a really good process in the implementation of the kernel 5.x on the Jetson nano. I don't see any project to enable CUDA 11 or 12. I see only some early in development projects that can't be used really. I don't like when the big companies push us to waste the old but still good socs that we bought with our hard earned money. They care only about their business plans,not to our desires or to help us to save money. So,now I'm trying by myself to enable at least CUDA 11 on the Jetson nano. And maybe I found how to do this. What is the role of the community? has always been to fork projects that are abandoned by big companies in order to be able to continue them because they are still considered good. For the jetson nano I don't see a valid project that helps us to keep it alive.

They have improved a LOT with their upstream work but they view the
SoC that the nano is based upon as now basically EOL so it's more if
the work also aligns with the newer SoCs they're focused on. The newer
Jetpack releases use much newer kernels with a lot more things that
are upstream but the 5.x and later releases only support Xavier/Orin.
