Why you might want to install a specific version of TensorFlow
TensorFlow is an open-source machine learning platform with a wide range of applications. While most users will install the latest stable release, you might sometimes need to install a specific version of TensorFlow to reproduce results from a research paper or to take advantage of new features in the package. In this article, we’ll show you how to do this using the Conda package manager.
How to install TensorFlow using Conda
If you want to install a specific version of TensorFlow, you can do so using the Conda package manager. First, find the desired version of TensorFlow on the official TensorFlow website. Then, open a terminal and type the following command:
conda install tensorflow=version_number
where “version_number” is replaced by the actual number of the version you want to install.
How to install a specific version of TensorFlow using Conda
On Linux and macOS systems, you can install a specific version of TensorFlow using the corresponding conda package. For example, to install version 2.0:
$ conda install -c anaconda tensorflow-gpu==2.0 # for GPU
$ conda install -c anaconda tensorflow==2.0 # for CPU
How to verify your installation of TensorFlow
To verify your installation of TensorFlow, open a new terminal session and enter the following command:
`import tensorflow as tf`
If you see no errors, then TensorFlow has been installed successfully.
What to do if you run into problems while installing TensorFlow
If you run into problems while trying to install TensorFlow, don’t worry! There are a few things you can try to get things up and running.
If you’re having trouble with the installation process, the first thing to do is check the version of TensorFlow you’re trying to install. You can do this by opening the Terminal (for Mac users) or the Command Prompt (for Windows users) and typing “conda list tensorflow.” This will give you a list of all the versions of TensorFlow that are available for installation. If you’re trying to install a version of TensorFlow that’s not on this list, it means that that particular version is not compatible with your operating system.
If you’re having trouble installing a specific version of TensorFlow, it’s likely because there are some dependencies (other software packages that TensorFlow needs in order to run properly) that are not satisfied. To see if this is the case, try running the “conda install” command with the “–verbose” option. This will print out all of the dependencies that need to be satisfied for TensorFlow to be installed. If any of these dependencies are not satisfied, Conda will try to install them automatically. However, if Conda is unable to find a dependency or if you have a manually installed dependency (like Python), then you will need to install it yourself before proceeding.
Once you have all of the dependencies satisfied, try running “conda install tensorflow” again. If everything goes smoothly, this should successfully install TensorFlow on your system!
How to uninstall TensorFlow
If you installed TensorFlow using pip, you should be able to uninstall it using the following command:
pip uninstall tensorflow
If you installed TensorFlow using Conda, you can uninstall it by running the following command:
conda uninstall tensorflow
FAQs about installing TensorFlow
#How do I install a specific version of TensorFlow?
You can install TensorFlow using the pip command:
$ pip install tensorflow==1.2.1
#How do I specify the path to my Python installation?
You can set the path to your Python installation by setting the PYTHONPATH environment variable:
$ export PYTHONPATH=/path/to/python
#Where can I find the list of available TensorFlow versions?
You can find the list of available TensorFlow versions at https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/.
Further resources on installing TensorFlow
Conda is an open-source, cross-platform tool for managing packages and working environments for language-agnostic applications such as Python. Conda makes it easy to install TensorFlow (and other packages) in a conda environment and also provides easy access to the GPU version of TensorFlow.
If you want to install a specific version of TensorFlow, such as 1.2.0, you can do so by specifying the version number when you create the environment:
conda create -n tensorflow python=3.5
activate tensorflow # Windows users must open an Anaconda Prompt and run ‘activate tensorflow’
pip install – ignore-installed – upgrade https://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow/windows/gpu/tensorflow_gpu-1.2.0-cp35-cp35m-win_amd64.whl
You can also find instructions for installing TensorFlow on macOS and Linux on the Conda website.
While it is possible to install multiple different versions of TensorFlow on your system, you will need to specify which one you want to use when calling the library. If you have both TensorFlow 1.x and 2.x installed, for example, you can specify which one to use by calling it as follows:
tensorflow==1.x # for TensorFlow 1.x
tensorflow==2.x # for TensorFlow 2.x
I am a software engineer and a machine learning enthusiast. I have been working with TensorFlow for a few months now. I enjoy learning new things and sharing my knowledge with others.
