Can't load the driver ethos-n-stack

Hi all,

Succeeded to build the ethos-n-stack driver. I succeeded to build it using this page:

https://github.com/ARM-software/ethos-n-driver-stack

The build generates some files, one of them is the driver .ko file (ethosn.ko). I should install this driver using the command "sudo insmod ethos.ko". But when I run this command, I got this error.

[ 1391.608322] Registering ethosn-core

Notice that I extract this error message using the command "dmesg | tail -n 20".

Would any one please explain what is the meaning of this error and how can I debug it?

Thank you,

  • The Ethos-N driver stack is composed of multiple components, each with their own license. The components are: The Arm Ethos-N NPU driver, which is the collection of user-space libraries. The Arm NN backend, which interfaces the Ethos-N NPU driver to Arm NN.A driver can't load on this device. You are receiving this message because the Memory integrity setting in Windows Security is preventing a driver from loading on your device.
