Will the stick work with 17? I need newer kernels for my hardware platform.
@pisymbol there's been a couple discussions around Ubuntu 17.04 - ex. https://ncsforum.movidius.com/discussion/comment/274/#Comment_274. The official release currently only supports 16.04 due to it's LTS roadmap from canonical. One way to deal with this, is to figure out the dependencies for MvNC_API, so that you can install the entire SDK on a 16.04 machine but only run inference (API) on your 17.04. Here's more info on the SDK organization, it might help with your porting efforts - https://ncsforum.movidius.com/discussion/comment/240/#Comment_240
I suspect there is nothing stopping me from working with the stick within a 16.x container (docker)?
@pisymbol will that work with a USB stick (will you get access to the device from the container)?
Yes, absolutely. I have a Dockerfile that does it and some instructions. I just need Modivius to fix the USB disconnect problem for me to confirm.
