Use OpenVino in Debian Stretch

Hi,

I am starting with openvino and NCS2 and I am wondering if it could be possible to use openvino in debian stretch.

I know that, officially, only ubuntu and centos is supported but I don't know why it could not be possible to make it working with debian stretch.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, but, if i try to install it in debian with the official installer a warning message appears telling me that it debian is not supported.

Dear Onemikeoscar and jay07920,

unfortunately at this time we do not support Debian Stretch. We may support it in the future, however, based on customer demand. You are welcome to build the infrastructure to support Debian Stretch yourself - after all OpenVino is open source ! Check out our dldt github :

https://github.com/opencv/dldt.git 

And thanks for your interest in OpenVino !

Actually Ubuntu 16.04 binaries should work on Debian Stretch.

The job to be done here is mostly related to changing install scripts.

Probably you can trick installer by replacing /etc/lsb-release file temporarily to the one from Ubuntu 16 or 18.

Debian doesn't have /etc/lsb-release. It uses /usr/bin/lsb_release instead.

I would start here from copying /etc/lsb-release from Ubuntu 16.04 to Debian Stretch and review all the scripts containing "lsb-release".

May be the best way would be is to copy /etc/lsb-release from Ubuntu 16.04 system to Debian Stretch system into folder /opt/intel.

And next (before installation OpenVino) to change in OpenVino install scripts "/etc/lsb-release" to "/opt/intel/lsb-release".

Fake a /etc/lsb-release file with the following content, and you will be able to fool the installer into thinking your system is a Ubuntu. After installation, you can delete the /etc/lsb-release file.
