ncappzoo: can't compile on a Docker instance of ncsdk

I am running ncsdk in a docker container on a Ubuntu 16.04 based system. After testing that the ncsdk works over the USB connection, I am trying to install and work on an image classifier example as described in:


After I git cloned the ncappzoo archive into /ncsdk/workspace/, I tied to do a


make compile


from the /ncsdk/workspace/ncappzoo directory. This fails with the following error message:


/usr/local/bin/ncsdk/Controllers/ UserWarning: You are using a large type. Consider reducing your data sizes for best performance


Blob generated


make[2]: Leaving directory '/ncsdk/workspace/ncappzoo/tensorflow/inception_v3'


make -C tf_models/. compile


make[2]: Entering directory '/ncsdk/workspace/ncappzoo/tensorflow/tf_models'


make[2]: *** No rule to make target 'compile'. Stop.


make[2]: Leaving directory '/ncsdk/workspace/ncappzoo/tensorflow/tf_models'


Makefile:12: recipe for target 'tf_models/.' failed


make[1]: *** [tf_models/.] Error 2


make[1]: Leaving directory '/ncsdk/workspace/ncappzoo/tensorflow'


Makefile:12: recipe for target 'tensorflow/.' failed


make: *** [tensorflow/.] Error 2




What can I do to make this work? I have tried deleting the entire workspace directory and cloning again from github, but no luck: see the same error again. Have any one of you tried to build ncappzoo on a docker container instance of ncsdk? Is this a supported flow?
