[solved][ArchLinux] Using `Variable.backwards` appears to hang program indefinitely

I am also experiencing this issue on Fedora 26 with glibc 2.25. I just built pytorch this morning, and haven’t upgraded any packages on my system (including glibc) since building pytorch. I created this GitHub issue: https://github.com/pytorch/pytorch/issues/1233

i’m having the same issue on Manjaro. PyTorch was working fine last week.

Are you using binary installs? This has been fixed in master.

I can confirm that the problem no longer occurs for me now using master. I would tag this topic solved but I don’t know if @c4n is having an issue that is related.

This problem is not an issue for me anymore. Thanks!
