Cuda: 9.2 Gcc: 5.4.0 Ubuntu 16.04 Kernel: 4.15.0-24-generic When building OpenCV 3.4.2 with opencv_contrib-3.4.2 I encounter an error which I can't seem to get around.

    -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local \

When I run with "-D WITH_PROTOBUF=OFF" I run into another error

DId you do a make clean after disabling the -D WITH_PROTOBUF=OFF? Because CUDA should not have a dependency on it.

Yeah, and just did it again to test. It crashes with /home/mikeyr/opencv/opencv-3.4.2/modules/cudev/include/opencv2/cudev.hpp:58:37: fatal error: /home/mikeyr/opencv/opencv-3.4.2/modules/cudev/include/opencv2/cudev/util/vec_traits.hpp: Operation not permitted

Can you first disable CUDA for a second, just to see if that is the problem or something underlying?

It worked WITH_CUDA=OFF, failed compiled one time, but re-ran the make command and then it managed to complete. I kinda need it to be compiled with cuda since I'm using the Zed SDK.

Are you sure the compute capability is matching your graphics card?

StevenPuttemans gravatar imageStevenPuttemans ( 2018-07-23 08:29:48 -0500 )edit

I have a Quadro M1200 with Compute Capability of 5.0, according to wikipedia Cuda 9.X supports compute capability 3.0 – 7.x. So unfortunately that is not the reason. I don't know why I get "operation not permitted errors" when building.

Can you check your permissions where you are running the make command? From similar google posts it seems your system is somehow blocking access.

It was my anti-virus who apparantly killed the process at random places. After stopping it, I can now succesfully compile! Thanks man. Anti-Virus I'm using is BitDefender

Yeah defenders can block execution rights if they think it is malware. You can solve this by adding exceptions for your executable inside the malware software.
