Aml_npu_app/facenet linux-sdk compilation

I found some models in your git repo aml_npu_app. And I’m interested to try some of them (especially facenet and yoloface). I want to try them running on npu.
So following your documentation i need to use linux_sdk. I’m trying to run this scripts but receiving error. Same happens with inceptionv3 demo and yoloface.
Error disappear when I trying /linux_sdk_6.4.2.1, but in this case binary file bin_r/yoloface (or bin_r/facenet) is missing while other files (libnn_yoloface.so vnn_yoloface.o yoloface.o yoloface_process.o) is generated.

Can you check this ?

@Danylo_Hartwig I have try to compile it . it work fine…

Generally speaking, this error is caused by the use of x86 files, but from your information, it is normal.

Have you made any changes to the SDK and app code repository?

No, i used code from gitlab without any modifications. The same with sdk, version of sdk is 6.4.3. Try to run it on aws server with ubuntu 20.04. Also it really strange that linux sdk 6.4.2.1 is working without error, but not generating binary file.

And for inceprionv3 beta it works perfectly with linix sdk 6.4.2.1.

@Danylo_Hartwig This is different from compiling the app repository. You can run inception with 6.4.2.1 because the driver of your system has not been updated to the latest

If you don’t make any changes, it can be compiled, and many people have tried this.

Can you please give a list of requirements that needed to run Linux_sdk 6.4.3 on aws ubuntu 20.04, I can’t find anything in your documentations.

I understand that it working for someone else and also for you. But in my case it is not working and I can’t understand why. Or maybe it is possible to write some kind of instructions.

Thank you in advance.

Okay
I re-download aml-npu-sdk-6.4.3 and aml-npu-app and now it working. https://docs.khadas.com/vim3/HowToRunNPUDemo.html Now following this I need to use it similar to yolo models? No binary file facenet is needed?

So I’m trying to run demo with facenet as written im ReadMe.md, but getting error that type 11 not supported. Is there way to fix it?
