MMCV/MMDet/MMDet3D Installation

  • If you faced the error shown below when importing open3d:

    OSError: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libm.so.6: version 'GLIBC_2.27' not found

    please downgrade open3d to, because the latest open3d needs the support of file ‘GLIBC_2.27’, which only exists in Ubuntu 18.04, not in Ubuntu 16.04.

  • If you faced the error when importing pycocotools, this is because nuscenes-devkit installs pycocotools but mmdet relies on mmpycocotools. The current workaround is as below. We will migrate to use pycocotools in the future.

    pip uninstall pycocotools mmpycocotools
    pip install mmpycocotools
  • If you face the error shown below, and your environment contains numba == 0.48.0 with numpy >= 1.20.0

    TypeError: expected dtype object, got 'numpy.dtype[bool_]'

    please downgrade numpy to < 1.20.0 or install numba == 0.48 from source, because in numpy==1.20.0, np.dtype produces subclass due to API change.
