I recently installed TensorFlow on my Mac OS laptop and ran into some small issues. Maybe this will be useful to someone in the future, so here’s how they were resolved.
sudo pip3 install --upgrade tensorflow threw errors, so I took TensorFlow’s suggestion to try installing directly from the Python package URL (I am installing the CPU only version).
sudo pip3 install --upgrade https://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow/mac/cpu/tensorflow-1.1.0-py3-none-any.whl
This threw the following two errors:
PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/Users/ysbecca/anaconda/lib/python3.5/site-packages/easy-install.pth' FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Users/ysbecca/anaconda/lib/python3.5/site-packages/setuptools-33.1.1-py3.5.egg'
I fixed the first issue by navigating into the site packages folder and changing the permissions:
sudo chown ysbecca easy-install.pth chmod +x easy-install.pth curl https://bootstrap.pypa.io/ez_setup.py | python
Then I looked for the missing .egg file, and found only:
-rw-r--r-- 2 ysbecca staff 30 15 Sep 2016 setuptools.pth
I uninstalled and then re-installed the proper setuptools package as follows:
sudo pip install setuptools==33.1.1
Still missing the .egg file, but it looked promising:
drwxr-xr-x 37 root staff 1258 2 May 16:43 setuptools drwxr-xr-x 12 root staff 408 2 May 16:43 setuptools-33.1.1.dist-info -rw-r--r-- 1 ysbecca staff 702770 2 May 16:41 setuptools-33.1.1.zip -rw-r--r-- 2 ysbecca staff 30 2 May 16:41 setuptools.pth
Now the initial
sudo pip3 install --upgrade tensorflowworks.
