Cannot run Demo Scripts with GPU

OpenVINO version is 2018.2.300

OS Ubuntu 16.04.03

Platform Core i5-8400

====================================================

Just followed the Linux installation guide to setup my Openvino environment,

https://software.intel.com/en-us/arrticles/OpenVINO-Install-Linux

After performing the commands in the section of "Additional Installation Steps for Processor Graphics", I modified the demo script of "demo_security_barrier_camera.sh", replaced "CPU" with "GPU", then executed the script. The demo failed with the following messages:

###################################################

Please advise how to resolve this error. Thanks

This issue was resolved. Since the chipset is 8th generation Core i, we need to add:
   i915.alpha_support=1
to the 4.14 kernel command line. The GPU option worked well after I did that.

How did you add this "i915.alpha_support=1" command? I met the same problem, thanks!

Hi Edward,

To enable the i915 driver you need to append i915.alpha_support=1 to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in /etc/default/grub and the run a sudo update-grub.

Kind Regards,

Hi

I encountered the same problem when I assigned the model to the "GPU".

We has found a solution to solve the problem:

[ ERROR ] failed to create engine: clGetPlatformIDs error -1001

Solution: Install OpenCl dependency

root@intel-desktop:/opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/install_dependencies# ./install_NEO_OCL_driver.sh

Best Regards,

Rachel
