I recently got the MacBook Pro with M1 Max chip . I’d like to have local Fastai installed on the system for quick prototyping. What is the best practice of setting up the Fastai.
Shall I install Fastai directly on the Mac OS or use virtual platforms like docker? Any ideas, hints or links to get Fastai configured on the MacBook Pro with apple chip from the past experience will be much appreciated.
I’ve spent A LOT of time trying to get my M1 Mac working with the fast.ai course using mps…
Had different breakages at Lesson 1, 2 and 4 sadly.
Issues with versions mostly around protobuf, pytorch, python etc.
My solution for the time being is to resign and say that Macbook’s aren’t currently the ideal machine for the fast.ai course (and tbh probably DL) → currently using VSCode with remote environment in Paperspace. Seems to work pretty well now not dealing with setup issues and hoping I can focus now on learning vs. installing dependencies haha.
I am also using a MacBook Pro with Apple M1 Pro Chip, and I still cannot find out a solution to make that working properly. Every time I am trying to change the device to mps, I get no error but whenever I run a cell after having changed the device, I get the following message from Jupyterlab: "Kernel Restarting: The kernel for <jupyter_notebook_name> appears to have died. It will restart automatically.
Do you have any information about that? Any link to share that could be useful? I tried to gather as much information as possible until now but still unable to make things working.
