I am trying to get the Movidius NCS SDK running under VirtualBox. I've installed Ubuntu 16.04 and also the VirtualBox USB extension (only for version 5 or higher...) that supports USB 3.0, and I have enabled USB 3.0 support. I can mount an NCS stick (eg by selecting the device in the Devices menu) and it shows up when I do lsusb (with USB ID 040e:f63b MCCI). It also seems I can use other USB 3.0 devices. Unfortunately... when I do "make example01" I get the following output:
echo "example01 - GoogleNet profiling" example01 - GoogleNet profiling python3 ./mvNCProfile.pyc data/googlenet.prototxt -s 12 mvNCProfile v02.00, Copyright @ Movidius Ltd 2016 [Error 7] Toolkit Error: USB Failure. Code: No devices found
I do have another laptop that I can boot into Ubuntu 16.04 directly (and I've managed to get the Movidius SDK running on that machines and several other Ubuntu machines) but I'd like to avoid having to carry around two laptops. My Windows 10 machine is a managed corporate laptop and I don't have the option to install a dual-boot configuration.
Any ideas on how to proceed? Is this impossible? Is there another VM solution that is known to work?
