Cannot install mxnet-cu101==1.4.0

#1

Hello!

I have followed everything without problems up to the point where I have to update the environment description in environment.yml for mx-net with cuda support. My previous description was mxnet==1.4.0 which I changed to mxnet-cu101==1.4.0 as my cuda version is 10.1.
However, when I run:
conda env update -f environment.yml
I get the following error:
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement mxnet-cu101 (from -r /home/nenko/miniconda3/d2l-en/condaenv.alwxqubp.requirements.txt (line 1)) (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for mxnet-cu101 (from -r /home/nenko/miniconda3/d2l-en/condaenv.alwxqubp.requirements.txt (line 1))

Any help would be much appreciated!

Currently mxnet is only available for upto cuda version 10.0
Try replacing cuda 10.1 with 10.0

So should I uninstall cuda 10.1 and install cuda 10.0 before I try with mxnet-cu100==1.4.0 or I should directly try installing mxnet-cu100==1.4.0

I’m not sure which way would work, but I’d suggest to uninstall cuda 10.1 before installing cuda 10.0

Thanks! What is the best way to uninstall it so that there is no confusion after that? I am a bit of a beginner in linux.

Sorry I can’t say anything because I’ve never done that before. Here’s an official link from Nvidia regarding uninstalling cuda:
