NuPIC installation failure on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS

Hi,

I am a newbie here, I tried installing nupic on ubuntu where python version is 2.7, but failed. Does anyone tell me how to fix it? Thanks

ubuntu os information shows as follows:

$ sudo lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.

Output of installation is shown below

$ sudo pip install nupic

You are using pip version 8.1.1, however version 9.0.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the β€˜pip install --upgrade pip’ command.

The same problem happened when I try in windows 10. the information shows like this:

You say you are using python 2.7, but are you sure? This error seems to be linked to python 3to2 somehow.

Also, this has already been reported:

https://github.com/numenta/nupic/issues/3732

the python version is 2.7.12, which is shown as follows.
$ which python
/usr/bin/python
$ python --version
Python 2.7.12

Meanwhile, I tried installing from source with the commands below:
git clone https://github.com/numenta/nupic
export NUPIC=~/nupic
cd ~/nupic
sudo python setup.py install

the output of the last command is shown like this.

Before installing from source, you should uninstall nupic entirely. Then try installing from source again.

I uninstall nupic and nupic.bindings, reinstall from source again.

Is this a 32bit system?

It is 64bit system

$ getconf LONG_BIT
64

Please paste the output of this command:

pip freeze | grep nupic

asiainfo@S822lc1:~$ pip freeze | grep nupic
nupic==1.0.4.dev0
asiainfo@S822lc1:~$

That confirms that no version of nupic.bindings is installed. Good. Now run

pip install nupic.bindings --user

What happens?

This is another indication that you are actually running python 3. Sometimes there are multiple versions of python installed on a system. You’ll have to do some digging in your environment to figure this out.

This looks like a permission problem. Make sure you have write access to /tmp.

You are right about runing python 3. the following commands show evidence.

asiainfo@S822lc1:~$ which pip
/usr/bin/pip
asiainfo@S822lc1:~$ /usr/bin/pip -V
pip 9.0.1 from /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages (python 2.7)
asiainfo@S822lc1:~$ sudo which pip
/usr/local/bin/pip
asiainfo@S822lc1:~$ /usr/local/bin/pip -V
pip 8.1.1 from /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages (python 3.5)

Now, I run pip with absolute path, only problem of /tmp/VERSION shows up

asiainfo@S822lc1:~$ sudo /usr/bin/pip install nupic.bindings

In order to fix this, you need to figure out what’s wrong in your python environment. The pip in your path should run python 2, and it apparently is running python 3. I don’t think running pip with the absolute path is the right answer.

I managed to install nupic in PyCharm with python2.7 interpreter in windows 10. However, when I run the sine prediction routine in https://github.com/rhyolight/nupic.examples/tree/master/sine-prediction, error shows up as follows, Would you please tell me how to fix it? Thanks

Hi,
Any fix for this ? I’m trying to run this with Python 3.6.2 on windows 10.

Sorry, but we do not support python 3 at this time.

I switched to another machine and it works.

The previous machine is powerpc. Probably the powerpc does not match nupic so well, or there is conflict which I don’t fix it.

Anyway, bypassing the problem is also one acceptable solution.
