Running fastai on CPU

Can someone please tell me if it is possible to install fastai on a cpu only machine? The AWS AMIs seem to be only for GPU instances.

Check out README: instead of conda env update, you need to use conda env update -f environment-cpu.yml. This will create an environment called fastai-cpu. Obviously, if you want to run course notebooks on CPU, you need to modify some parts of the notebooks ad-hoc (e.g. remove cuda() calls).

getting the above mentioned error while installing the cpu version in windows 10, any help would be appreciated.

Are you behind, some proxy?
I had the same error and adding a proxy to environment solved it for me. If this is the case I will elaborate more.
