Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute SDK Installation Errors on Linux


Error Messages



What are you seeing?

Users have reported running into the following issue when installing the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute SDK (Intel® Movidius™ NCSDK):

make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/opt/movidius/ssd-caffe/build'
Installation failed. Error on line 673
Makefile:47: recipe for target 'install' failed
make: *** [install] Error 1

Why are you seeing it?

This failure may be caused by an issue with the dependencies for Caffe or by a problem with OpenCV version 4.0.1.

How to fix it:

Run the following commands to re-install the dependencies:

Note If you're installing on a fresh Ubuntu install, first run:
$sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
$cd ncsdk
$make uninstall
$make clean
$make install 2>&1 | tee install.log

If you are still running into errors, check the installation logs to see if you have OpenCV version 4.0.1 installed. There have been reported installation errors when version 4.0.1 is already installed on your system. Try the following steps to re-install the Neural Compute SDK:

  1. Uninstall OpenCV v4.0.1
  2. Make uninstall & make clean (iNCSDK directory)
  3. Make install
  4. Re-install OpenCV v4.0.1 (the NCSDK install includes a script to install OpenCV v3.3.0 already. V4.0.1 has not been tested)
