Build Fast RCNN on Mac + El Capitan

Following the tutorial at:

Additional steps:

brew install wget (for fetch fast rcnn models)
brew install easydict
brew install matplotlib

if you did brew install numpy,

and step 3. Build the Cython modules, when you cd lib and make, you will see error like:

fatal error: numpy/arrayobject.h : No such file or directory

You will need to do:

export CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/Cellar/numpy/1.11.0/lib/python2.7/site-packages/numpy/core/include/

Then make will work.

if you don’t have GPU to run, and only can run on CPU

you should run

./tools/ –cpu

since GPU mode is by default
