(@dillon : I was about to publish this post when I received your direct message but as my problem can concern other people of the group of Brasilia, I guess it is better to discuss in this thread. Thank you very much.)
Hi @dillon e @reshama,
@lucasosouza and I are 2 of the coorganizers of the Deep Learning Brasilia Study Group (Brazil). We started this week the course fast.ai (part 1) with about 100 participants in Brasilia.
As @jeremy showed it in the first video, we enhanced our group to use PaperSpace for running the Fast.ai jupyter notebooks.
Then, I firstly published a post with a link to this thread “Paperspace setup help” and a link to the guide “step by step instructions on the whole process - PaperSpace for fast.ai”.
I tried it myself but after completing successfully the Part III, it was impossible to get my machine worked in PaperSpace : from https://www.paperspace.com/console/machines, I launch my machine; the terminal is launched but turns indefinitely without giving me the possibility to type in; therefore, I can not run the “Part IV: Paperspace & Jupyter Notebook”.
After that, my colleague @lucasosouza found the fast.ai PaperSpace script (http://files.fast.ai/setup/paperspace) and published a post explaining that using this script is the right procedure. And, YES, this script works !
So, I need some explanations : why using the fast.ai public template does not work (I’m in Brasilia) ? the Fast.ai PaperSpace guide is out of date ? Or, there is another reason ?
Thanks for answering because we have a group of about 100 people (and more in Brasilia) which needs your help and advice.
