Installation and Getting Started 2023

Not able to conduct install as directed…

  • Windows users should install Docker Desktop and 1) make sure Linux containers are enabled (Switch to Linux Containers…), 2) give Docker enough CPUs (default 2) and RAM (>4Gb, 16Gb better but leave some for Windows) by going to Settings – Advanced, and 3) select where on your hard drive you want virtual hard drives to reside (Settings – Advanced – Images & Volumes).

Fresh New Install Jan 12 2023

  1. Docker does not offer option to enable linux containers from what I can tell
  2. Resources Advanced

You are using the WSL 2 backend, so resource limits are managed by Windows.

You can configure limits on the memory, CPU, and swap size allocated to WSL 2 in a .wslconfig file.

  1. Git

    $ git clone GitHub - OpenDroneMap/WebODM: User-friendly, commercial-grade software for processing aerial imagery. 🛩 --config core.autocrlf=input --depth 1
    fatal: destination path ‘WebODM’ already exists and is not an empty directory.

Yes, that entire flow needs to be updated.

For point 4, it looks like you’ve tried already so you need to remove the existing WebODM directory to do a git clone again.
