During the installation, you will be prompted to enter your product key. This key is in the email you received from the Intel® Registration Center. Contact if you do not have this email message.
The steps below explain how to:
  • Prepare your target system.
  • Copy the package.
  • Complete the installation steps.

Step 1: Prepare the
Target System

Make sure your target system has a fresh installation of
Ubuntu*/CentOS*
/
RHEL*
that corresponds to the version of
Edge Insights for Vision
that you downloaded. If you need help installing
Ubuntu*/CentOS*
/
RHEL*
, follow these steps:
  1. Download or to your
    developer workstation
    .
  2. Create a bootable flash drive using an imaging application, such as Startup Disk Creator, available on
    target system
    .
  3. After flashing the USB drive, power off your target system, insert the USB drive, and power on the target system.
    If the
    target system
    doesn't boot from the USB drive, change the boot priority in the system BIOS.
  4. Follow the prompts to install
    Ubuntu*/CentOS*
    /
    RHEL*
    with the default configurations. For detailed instructions, see the or .
  5. Power down your
    target system
    and remove the USB drive.
  6. Power up the
    target system
    . You will see
    Ubuntu*/CentOS*
    /
    RHEL*
    is successfully installed.
Prerequisites for
RHEL*
You must make the following settings before you install
RHEL*
, otherwise the yum install of some of the packages will fail.
  1. Make sure to download the ISO image in step 1 by registering through developers.redhat.com. You must add the same user details in System Registration during first boot through the GUI or through the subscription-manager CLI.
  2. Make sure the commands
    sudo yum update
    and
    sudo yum install <any_package>
    work. If the commands fail, make sure to set enabled option to 0 in the
    /etc/yum.repos.d/endpoint.repo
    file.

Step 2: Copy the
Edge Insights for Vision
.zip File to the
Target System

In this step you copy
Edge Insights for Vision
to your
target system
.
  1. Copy
    edge_insights_vision.zip
    from the
    developer workstation
    to the Home directory on your
    target system
    . You can use a USB flash drive to copy the file. The icon looks like this:

Step 3: Extract the
Edge Insights for Vision
Software

In this step you extract
edge_insights_vision.zip
. You need to be on the
target system
to complete these steps.
  1. Make sure you have a working Internet connection.
  2. Open a new terminal.
  3. Extract the package:
    unzip edge_insights_vision.zip
    If you download the file more than once, each download beyond the first is appended by a number.
  4. (Optional) Use the link in the
    readme
    file to open this Get Started Guide on the
    target system
    for an easy way to copy and paste commands.

Step 4: Install the
Edge Insights for Vision
Software

You will now run a script that will download components and install
Edge Insights for Vision
on your
target system
.
The software installation will take 1 to 2 hours. The completion time depends on your
target system
and Internet connection.
During the installation, pip and apt packages, as well as code from Git repositories, is downloaded from the Internet. If you are in a region that has access restrictions, you will be prompted to provide alternate download URLs.
  1. Run these commands:
    cd edge_insights_vision/ chmod 775 edgesoftware ./edgesoftware install
  2. Type the product key at the prompt:
Based on components selected and system configuration, you might be prompted for additional actions. For example, if your system is behind a proxy, you are asked to enter proxy settings.
When the installation is complete, you see the message
Installation of package complete
and the installation status for each module.
To confirm your installation was successful and for a quick look at how it works, use the Introduction to the Edge Software Command Line Interface.

Troubleshooting

  • Make sure you have an active internet connection during the full installation. If you lose Internet connectivity at any time, the installation might fail.
  • Make sure you are using a fresh
    Ubuntu*/CentOS*
    /
    RHEL*
    installation. Earlier software, especially Docker* and Docker Compose*, can cause issues.
  • In proxy environment, if single user proxy is set (in the
    .bashrc
    file, for example) then some of the component installation may fail or installation hangs. So make sure you have set the proxy in
    /etc/environment
    .
  • For PRC users: downloading and installation of CSP and K3s components may fail. Only the components below are supported in PRC:
    • Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit
      in a Container
    • Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit
      Runtime
    • Deep Learning (DL) Streamer Pipelines
    • Docker*
      Community Edition (CE)
  • If yum update fails in
    RHEL*
    in proxy environment, make sure to set the proxy in
    /etc/yum.conf
    with
    enableProxy=1
    .
  • RHEL*
    only:
    Installation of the component may fail if you fail to enter the root password before the timeout period ends. In some cases, this causes package dependencies to be broken and subsequent installations may also fail.
    To resolve this issue, search for the package which shows the error, remove the package and start the installation again, using these commands:
    sudo yum list installed <package_name> sudo yum remove <package_name_showed_with_first_command>
  • On CentOS target machine, if
    hddldaemon
    failed to start the service, perform the below steps:
    • Reboot the target machine.
    • Execute the following commands:
      source /opt/intel/openvino/bin/setupvars.sh cd $HDDL_INSTALL_DIR ./install_IVAD_VPU_dependencies.sh cd ./bin ./hddldaemon
