Installing MXNet on CentOS and other non-Ubuntu Linux systems
Step 1. Install build tools and git on
CentOS >= 7 and
Fedora >= 19:
sudo yum groupinstall -y "Development Tools" && sudo yum install -y git
Step 2. Install Atlas:
sudo yum install atlas-devel
make by following instructions on the websites is
straightforward. Here we provide the instructions to build
gcc-4.8 from source codes.
Step 3. Install the 32-bit
libc with one of the following system-specific commands:
sudo apt-get install libc6-dev-i386 # In Ubuntu sudo yum install glibc-devel.i686 # In RHEL (Red Hat Linux) sudo yum install glibc-devel.i386 # In CentOS 5.8 sudo yum install glibc-devel.i686 # In CentOS 6/7
Step 4. Download and extract the
gcc source code with the prerequisites:
wget http://mirrors.concertpass.com/gcc/releases/gcc-4.8.5/gcc-4.8.5.tar.gz tar -zxf gcc-4.8.5.tar.gz cd gcc-4.8.5 ./contrib/download_prerequisites
Step 5. Build
gcc by using 10 threads and then install to
mkdir release && cd release ../configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-languages=c,c++ make -j10 sudo make install
Step 6. Add the lib path to your configure file such as
Step 7. Build OpenBLAS from source.
Step 8. Build OpenCV
To build OpenCV from source code, you need the cmake library.
- If you don't have cmake or if your version of cmake is earlier than 3.6.1, run the following commands to install a newer version of cmake:
wget https://cmake.org/files/v3.6/cmake-3.6.1-Linux-x86_64.tar.gz tar -zxvf cmake-3.6.1-Linux-x86_64.tar.gz alias cmake="cmake-3.6.1-Linux-x86_64/bin/cmake"
- To download and extract the OpenCV source code, run the following commands:
wget https://codeload.github.com/opencv/opencv/zip/2.4.13 unzip 2.4.13 cd opencv-2.4.13 mkdir release cd release/
- Build OpenCV. The following commands build OpenCV with 10 threads. We
disabled GPU support, which might significantly slow down an MXNet program
running on a GPU processor. It also disables 1394 which might generate a
warning. Then install it on
cmake -D BUILD_opencv_gpu=OFF -D WITH_CUDA=OFF -D WITH_1394=OFF -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local .. make -j10 sudo make install
- Add the lib path to your configuration such as
