I wish I had more insight for you. Unfortunately all I can really say is dlib doesn’t seg fault (any more) when I import it… I have no idea if it actually works because I have had so many frustrations with this platform that I have practically given up for the short term. I cant get the camera to work. I cant really get anything at all to work on this board without a ridiculous amount of “fixes”. Literally nothing I’ve touched on this works without multiple google searches and dead ends like this one.
I’m using pip3 install dlib and it looks like it compiles itself as part of the install (never really paid attention to that on the python side because it just works on every other platform… intel linux, intel macos, raspberry pi).
Again, I would be shocked and dismayed if it actually worked given the slew of other issues the jetson nano has. I’ve literally wasted a week and have nothing to show for it. I cant even point to a working example that would validate it would be suitable for my project.
Sorry, I’m venting. Good luck. If this gets resolved, I’d love to try it again, but for now I’ve hit the limit of my patience.
Also, looks like dlib in the tutorial is installed through the face_recognition package? Maybe try installing it directly? I’m pretty sure I did that on my first round when it segfaulted, so I wouldn’t wager on that being the solution.
