System requirements#

Prerequisite - minimal system requirements#

Parrot Sphinx exclusively runs on those Linux 64-bit distributions:

  • Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic)

  • Debian 10 (buster)

  • Ubuntu 20.04 (focal)

  • Debian 11 (bullseye)

Minimal resources:

  • 8-core CPU @ 2GHz

  • 8GB DDR

  • Nvidia GPU with 2GB GDDR (with up-to-date Nvidia drivers)

  • 4GB of free disk space


You must disable the UEFI Secure Boot on your workstation. Parrot Sphinx will not start otherwise.

Minimal system requirements may not be sufficient to enable all features of Parrot Sphinx. This is particularly true if you enable the front camera (activated by default) or if you use Wifi to access the simulated drone from a smartphone application.
