Lesson 1 – Weights directory not found

(Jorge Barrios) #1

When executing the notebook for lesson1-rxt50 I get this error:

[Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/home/paperspace/fastai/courses/dl1/fastai/weights/resnext_50_32x4d.pth’

I’m uncertain about how to get these files in the correct place. I’m using the fast.ai template in paperspace.

It’s possible that I deleted something by mistake, so does anybody know a way to restore the files to their original state or even the whole papaerspace machine?

Broken folder links in notebooks?

Actually we need to download the weights and place it in the proper directory…
Searching the forum might help…


The specific commands that that fixed this for me were as follows:

Navigate to ~/fastai/courses/dl1/fastai/
wget http://files.fast.ai/models/weights.tgz
tar -xvzf weights.tgz

and then I was able to run:
arch = resnext101_64
learn = ConvLearner.pretrained(arch, data, precompute = True)

in my notebook without an error.

Thanks, ianhi, this solved my problem. cheers!


In my case I also had to download and move the weights directory to virtualenv_name/lib/python3.6/site-packages/fastai/weights. It worked then.
