NCSDK2 Installation Error

I met some problem when I installed NCSDK2 on my machine where the environment is Ubuntu Linux 16.04 (64-bit). I follow the instructions here. My operations are as follow:
1. Clone the repository from GitHub:

$ git clone -b ncsdk2
  1. Perform the Makefile to install:
$ cd ncsdk && make install
  1. Then, the error message is as follow:
src/caffe/CMakeFiles/caffe.dir/build.make:422: recipe for target 'src/caffe/CMakeFiles/caffe.dir/util/bbox_util.cpp.o' failed
make[3]: *** [src/caffe/CMakeFiles/caffe.dir/util/bbox_util.cpp.o] Error 1

Installation failed. Error on line 673

Is anyone know how to fix it? I have already searched on the Google and Stackoverflow but I don't get any solution.

  • Hi @knew

    Thank you for reaching out! There may be an issue with the dependencies for Caffe which are causing the failure. Could you try running the following commands to re-install and send me the log file? Are you installing on a fresh Ubuntu install? Try running sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade.

    cd ncsdk
    make uninstall
    make clean
    make install 2>&1 | tee install.log


  • Hello,

    I'm not using a fresh Ubuntu install.

    And this is my install log here.


  • Hi @knew

    Thank you for sharing the logs, it appears you have OpenCV version 4.0.1 installed. Other users have reported installation errors when this version is present.

    Try the following steps to install the NCSDK:
    1. Uninstall OpenCV v4.0.1
    2. make uninstall && make clean (ncsdk directory)
    3. make install
    4. Re-install OpenCV v4.0.1

    The NCSDK includes a script to install opencv v3.3.0, you may run into other issues as we have not tested v4.0.1.

    Let me know if this helps!


  • Jesus,

    Thank you for the help. Your first post helped me solve a BUNCH of issues.
