Compiling Error from installing PyTorch from source

When I try to compile PyTorch from source, I encountered this issue (CUDA 8.0, cuDNN v5 and python3.5). Thank you!

error: command ‘gcc’ failed with exit status 1

  1. what platform is this? Linux? what linux?
  2. do you have the NVIDIA driver installed?
  3. post a full log of the command python install, not just the error message.

It’s weird that there is no pthread in your system, i am suspecting Solaris?

Thank you so much!!! It was right on point…

In our cluster, we have a central host that sends out slurm job requests to other nodes. But this host itself does not have GPU cards, hence no NVIDIA driver. That’s why I couldnt install master branch from this central host. But by requesting a node with GPU card, it can installed via that machine.

Many thanks again!!
