I tried reproducing your issue on a couple existing systems (on which NCS worked well), and also made a fresh install on a clean Ubuntu 16.04 machine; all of these systems have python 3.5.2. The toolkit/setup.sh script installs python3, but it doesn't really specify a sub-version, I see that the package version for Ubuntu 16.04 is 3.5.1-3 (which is actually 3.5.2). Perhaps you manually installed python 3.5.3 on your machine? If so, can you please uninstall/purge it, run
sudo apt-get install python3 python3-pip, and then run ncapi/setup.sh? (you probably don't have to rerun toolkit/setup.sh)
Excerpt from toolkit/setup.sh:
$SUDO_PREFIX apt-get $APT_QUIET install -y unzip coreutils curl git python3 python3-pip
PS: Let me know if above suggestion works, I am curious to know if the problem is due to the difference in subversion.
Hi @"Ashwin Vijayakumar",
I trying to install sdk on Ubuntu 17.04 and have a similar problem because it uses python 3.5.3. It seems it will be easy to fix api build if I can rebuild mvNCCompile.pyc from source.
@albor thanks for trying out the SDK on 17.04, I was building a fresh machine with 17.04 so I could test. The API and toolkit currently aren't OpenSouce, so can you please move to a 16.04 machine with 3.5.2?
I downgraded to 16.04 and was able to run samples :). Unfortunately on 17.04 as far as I understand graphviz python wrapper is not "binding" with graphviz properly out of the box. That prevents movidius sdk setup even if magic number problem resolved.
python3 ./mvNCCompile.pyc data/lenet8.prototxt -s 12 RuntimeError: Bad magic number in .pyc file Makefile:21: recipe for target 'example00' failed make: *** [example00] Error 1
With Python 3.4.2 on BunsenLabs (Debian Jessie)
@BQBQ Probably the difference between BunsenLabs and Ubuntu is causing this. Please try to use Ubuntu 16.04 (and Python 3.5.2 by default on it) as recommended in "Getting Started Guide" which is proven to run examples correctly.
Would it be possible to get the non-cythoned version of the mvNCCompile script? It's possible to navigate around most other problems on non-Ubuntu systems (such as Debian / raspbian / ubilinux, etc), but this Python sub-version dependency essentially requires one to install Ubuntu in a chroot, which complicates deployment work quite a bit.
So I would comment here:
, but also getting the error while building the NCAPI via shell script.

@karl What python version are you using? Assuming this is with the 1.07.10 release, you can also give the newest release a try: https://github.com/movidius/ncsdk/releases/tag/v1.09.00.06 and for more information: https://ncsforum.movidius.com/discussion/98/latest-version-movidius-neural-compute-sdk#latest
