Spyder installation fails with memory errors

Hi,

 

I attempted to install Spyder in my DevCloud ssh instance using 

 

 conda install spyder -c intel

 

and everything went well for a while then I started getting a bunch of errors like this one

 

InvalidArchiveError('Error with archive /home/u153568/.conda/pkgs/qt-5.9.7-h5867ecd_1rz9ygiga/info-qt-5.9.7-h5867ecd_1.tar.zst. You probably need to delete and re-download or re-create this file. Message from libarchive was:\n\nZstd decompression failed: Allocation error : not enough memory')

 

The installation failed. 

 

Has anyone successfully installed Spyder on DevCloud recently?

 

Thanks

Sunil

Hi,

 

Good day to you.

 

Thanks for posting in Intel Communities.

 

To install a package in Intel DevCloud, we suggest you perform the following steps:

 

If using the pip installer,

pip install --user <package_name>

E.g.: pip install --user numpy

 

If using the conda installer,

conda create -y -n <environment_name>

conda activate <environment_name>

conda install <package_name>

E.g.:

conda create -y -n test_env

conda activate test_env

conda install numpy

 

 

From your query, we can understand that you are using Intel DevCloud connect via SSH to run Spyder. Unfortunately, GUI applications are not supported on Intel DevCloud for oneAPI. We recommend signing into your Intel DevCloud via a web browser and opening a Jupyter Lab session by visiting the below link to have an interactive GUI based interface:

https://jupyter.oneapi.devcloud.intel.com/hub/login?next=/lab/tree/Welcome.ipynb?reset

 

You can also open Jupyter Notebook by visiting the "Intel DevCloud - Get Started" page (https://devcloud.intel.com/oneapi/get_started/) and clicking on the "Launch Jupyter Lab" link under the section "Connect with Jupyter Lab" at the bottom of the page.

 

Alternatively, you can also use the Visual Studio Code to access Intel DevCloud as per the documentation in the link: https://devcloud.intel.com/oneapi/documentation/connect-with-vscode/

 

If this helps, do mark this as a solution as this will help others with a similar query.

 

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Jyothis,
