AttributeError: 'function' object has no attribute 'fs'

Hi all,

I’m trying to apply what I learned in chapter 4.
Sofar, I have the following notebook.

However, when I run it, I get this error:


AttributeError                            Traceback (most recent call last)

AttributeError: 'function' object has no attribute 'fs'

What is the fs attribute and how can I add it to the dataloaders?

I’ve researched the documentation and it seems that fs is related to data augmentation. I could find the following sentence from here:

fs should be list-like, and contain a functions that will be composed together

Not sure what that mean as well :thinking:

Versions of fastai and fastcore?

I’m using fastai 1.0.61.

It does not seem that I’m using fastcore. I, at least, didn’t run the step to install it as mentioned here.

Try restarting your instance after the install. You’re looking for fastai v2

Not sure what “restarting the instance” refers to. The notebook is hosted on Google Colab (free membership) so unless I’m mistaken, I cannot restart the VM. I tried to restart the runtime many times (factory reset too), but it still installs fastai v1.

Not factory reset, restart runtime. It’s the option two above Factory Reset

Oh it works! Now I have fastai v2.

How restarting the runtime after having installed the package updates the package? I’m really confused :thinking:

It’s stored in the runtimes memory if you’ve tried running any cell before that, or sometimes colab just does that. It comes preinstalled with fastai v1, and we need to override it. Restarting it is the solution.

Thanks for the explanation.

So now I have fastai v2 but the error is still there.
Do I need to update anything in the DataLoaders?
