Setting up the build dependencies
The Arm NN SDK relies on some software, which you must set up and install.
To set up the build dependencies:
- Download and build Boost. Arm has tested version 1.64. Some other versions might work. For instructions to do this, see the Boost getting started guide . When you build Boost, include the following flags:
link=static cxxflags=-fPIC --with-filesystem --with-test --with-log --with-program_options --prefix=path/to/installation/prefix
- Clone and build protobuf. Arm has tested version 3.5.0. Some other versions might work. To clone version 3.5.0, enter:
git clone –b v3.5.0 https://github.com/google/protobuf.git
Build protobuf using the C++ installation instructions that you can find on the Protobuf GitHub. Make a note of the location of the installation, you will need it during the TensorFlow build process.
- Clone the TensorFlow source code from GitHub. To do this, see the TensorFlow GitHub.
