waiting for my account approval too…
Just checking - Is it only me facing this problem? anyone else facing this issue too? I followed @reshama’s setup instructions to the letter.
Hi Arturs, sorry for the less-than-ideal experience! We are getting through approvals as quickly as possible but have unfortunately been inundated by a lot of non Fast.ai users who are flooding the system making it harder for us to get you guys set up. Thanks for being patient and I assure you we are working around the clock to improve this experience!
I had exactly the same problem.
I deleted the machine, started a new one instead.
- I did not do a: git pull
- I did not update conda
I typed this:
pip uninstall tornado
pip install tornado ==4.5.3
Also don’t forget to activate the environment
source activate fastai
And it worked for me
I didn’t see it in the .jupyter directory. The jupyter-config.py is a file so the config file should be in .jupyter directory. Do I have that correct?
Thanks, I am now all set. Appreciate the very fast response time!
Yes absolutely correct…
In Windows it’s under you
Not so sure about Linux but it should be something equivalent to that
If any body need promo code, here is mine: 2Q553C7
BTW, the FASTAI15 isn’t available now.
@leromerom I did not create a new machine but I uninstalled tornado and reinstall tornado 4.5.3. I am having a bit of progress. Thanks a lot!
However my kernel seems to be dieing still. So I probably will have to delete machine and create a new machine. But before doing that I wanted to check with you - were you charged $5 once again when you created the new machine? Sorry am a student so on a tight budget.
Hi @sshleifer. I’m having exactly the same issue. Did you find how to manage it without reinstalling cuda stuff?
No, gave up
let me know if you do
The comments here are mildly helpful
Suggest that may need tensorflow 1.6, but obviously I didn’t figure this out so maybe don’t listen to me!
The first time I created a machine I entered the code @reshama posted in her installation guide and got, I think like $15 credit,I created the second one and was charged again but I still have some credit left. I believe you only get billed proportionally to the time used for the month if you delete a machine.
I’m checking in the forum trying to figure out the solution. No success so far.
Thanks in advance for your support.
I’ve finally managed to make it work. It seems that I installed simple
tensorflow while I had to install
tensorflow-gpu. Now it works with
+1 @dillon I’m also having the same issue waiting for account approval
Please do let me know if I need to provide any additional information.
I have problems to start up Paperspace it takes too long I will try AWS, has it worked fine for you?
AWS worked great. I used these instructions: https://github.com/reshamas/fastai_deeplearn_part1/blob/master/tools/aws_ami_gpu_setup.md3
I did run into a bit of a problem launching jupyter notebook from my ec2 instance after setting up a new key pair on the instance in order to access an s3 bucket which had my downloaded images in it. I shut everything down and rebooted and that seemed to fix the problem. Hope it works for you!
