problem: I need to install fastai from this commit when it was using pytorch 1.3, please provide a how to for non experts?
motivation: machine learning on laptops with barely enough VRAM memory to work with tutorial models is no fun
IBM has “pytorch large model support” that would be great if it worked.
(current: Watson machine learning conda channel (pytorch 1.3)
note pytorch 1.5 with large model support is in the early access channel
edit APR28: turns out all is needed is to clone the repository and git checkout the needed branch, then I run the install command to get a dev install per https://github.com/fastai/fastai ; however pip is still trying to install torch 1.8.1, no idea why because I have already conda installed pytorch 1.3.1
$ git clone https://github.com/fastai/fastai.git $ cd fastai $ git checkout 11603b239c2bd03c0d28c4e883e59a35e94bb86f $ cd .. $ pip install -e "fastai[dev]"
- any ideas on how to not-install torch 1.8.1?
