Official pytorch RL tutorial notebook is broken for me can some one else confirm?

Just downloaded the jupyter notebook for deep Q-learning and I would get error for the code block that is suppose to extract and process the rendered images from the environment.

NotImplementedError                       Traceback (most recent call last)

I am not sure what I need to do can some one please help?

Link to the tutorial where you can download the notebook.

This is the issue and how to fix it. If you don’t want to read the thread the issue is caused by pyglet not playing nice with jupyternotebook. You either have to downgrade to 1.2.4 or do this:

after some checking.


 if 'sphinx' in sys.modules:
    setattr(sys, 'is_epydoc', True)

if 'sphinx' in sys.modules:
    setattr(sys, 'is_epydoc', False)

pyglet has problem with jupyter, jupyter imports sphinx be default
but sphinx imported will lead pyglet thinks it is generating document? so cannot find display correctly.
