Re: NLTK (Natural language processing) installation problems.

Jump to solution

I am planning to upgrade to new version of linux in my edison. Planning to install Django Python. I have following queries with regard to this,

1. Which is better , Django or yocto or debian ? Which version is better for NLTK and machine learning algorithms to work? As I am new to linux environment, I don't see that i will be creating my own custom image of yocto. My requirement is to use the python libraries available and access them without pain. Which one do you recommend?

2. My OS is windows 7 32bit architecture. Is the yocto linux new version is available for download in 32bit version? If yes, can you send me the link to download.

3. I downloaded this "iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-edison-20160606". Is there a guide to install this yocto version in edison. Earlier I installed yocto in my edison using "PhoneFlashToolLite_5.3.2.0_win32.exe".

Thanks again for your concern,

Bhanu Kishan

Hi Bhanu,

 

 

We will continue to help you out on your questions in this case instead of /thread/110215 https://communities.intel.com/thread/110215 .

 

 

Please find our comments to your questions below:
  1. In regards to which image you should choose it really depends on the needs of your project. From our side, we'd be able to help you better if you use the Yocto image, since it's the only image we support for the Edison. The Debian image, for example is not supported and it's out of our area of expertise, so we won't be of much help if any issues occur.
  2. The link to download the latest Edison image can be found in the Downloads Section here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads . The specific file is labeled:"Latest Yocto* Poky image".
  3. The iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-edison-20160606 is the latest Yocto image. It's the same one found in the link: "Latest Yocto* Poky image" from the previous point. For Windows 32 bit there's a specific guide to install drivers and flash the image.

Thanks a ton for the help. I flashed my edison with the new firmware(201606061707) and installed nltk.

Everything is fine now. But the memory has gone up to 84%. I did install nltk_data, pip and pyserial, git and libmraa0 version. May I know what is the reason and how to clear the memory?

Thank you for letting us know you flashed the newest image and managed to install NLTK. In regards to your memory question, a newly flashed image in the Edison has the following disk space:

 

 

Then, after installing NLTK using the method from /thread/110215 https://communities.intel.com/thread/110215 the directory /dev/root was used in an 80%. You can check the result of df –h below.

 

The difference between this 80% and the 83% you're receiving is because of other packages you have installed. This means that while having the image installed and having the programs you mentioned you installed above, it's normal to be using around 84%.

Let us know if this answers your question.
