    As part of this Rocket provides the AI/ML conda packages and GPU Operator for Power machines.

    The RocketCE conda packages are build and supported for Power 9 and Power 10 with ppc64le architecture. These packages are installed into a conda environment so after installation is complete, the frameworks are ready for use. Presently these packages are available in RocketCE conda channel.
    This version of packages are available for Python 3.8, 3.9 and 3.10 and for CUDA 11.2 and 11.4.
    Note: Access and availability to this data is subject to the community and can change at any time.

    We are releasing RocketCE packages based on OpenCE v1.8.0.

    To know more about RocketCE and the various packages released with OpenCE1.8.0 please use the appropriate links below.

    Hello Rajesh, thanks for releasing Open-CE publicly - this definitely helps :)

    When testing and comparing against our internal IBM builds I have found a few inconsistencies with the rocketce implementation/build of open-ce.

    1.) When installing e.g. numpy via rocketce channel it seems to be missing a link (or the package at all) to libgfortran:

    (base) mambauser@a86b90e1762b:/tmp$ micromamba install -n base -c "rocketce/label/rocketce-1.8.0" -c main python=3.9 numpy
    [...]
    >>> import numpy as np
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    File "/root/miniconda3/envs/rocket1.8/lib/python3.9/site-packages/numpy/__init__.py", line 143, in <module>
    from . import lib
    File "/root/miniconda3/envs/rocket1.8/lib/python3.9/site-packages/numpy/lib/__init__.py", line 25, in <module>
    from .index_tricks import *
    File "/root/miniconda3/envs/rocket1.8/lib/python3.9/site-packages/numpy/lib/index_tricks.py", line 12, in <module>
    import numpy.matrixlib as matrixlib
    File "/root/miniconda3/envs/rocket1.8/lib/python3.9/site-packages/numpy/matrixlib/__init__.py", line 4, in <module>
    from .defmatrix import *
    File "/root/miniconda3/envs/rocket1.8/lib/python3.9/site-packages/numpy/matrixlib/defmatrix.py", line 11, in <module>
    from numpy.linalg import matrix_power
    File "/root/miniconda3/envs/rocket1.8/lib/python3.9/site-packages/numpy/linalg/__init__.py", line 73, in <module>
    from . import linalg
    File "/root/miniconda3/envs/rocket1.8/lib/python3.9/site-packages/numpy/linalg/linalg.py", line 34, in <module>
    from numpy.linalg import _umath_linalg
    ImportError: libgfortran.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    This can be fixed by installing libgfortan manually, but to avoid struggle it would be great have it linked automatically. When installing numpy via e.g. the IBM internal channel it works without issues:

    (base) mambauser@a86b90e1762b:/tmp$ micromamba install -n base -c http://ausgsa.ibm.com/gsa/ausgsa/projects/o/open-ce/conda/Open-CE-r1.8/1.8.0/opence-p10/ -c main python=3.9 numpy
    [...]
    >>> import numpy as np
    >>> np.__version__
    '1.23.4'

    2.) If I want to install tensorflow and pytorch using open-ce 1.8.0 rocketce channel this doesn't work:

    (base) mambauser@59d26b4271c4:/tmp$ micromamba install -n base -c "rocketce/label/rocketce-1.8.0" -c main python=3.9 tensorflow pytorch
    [...]
    error libmamba Could not solve for environment specs
    Encountered problems while solving:
    - nothing provides _tensorflow_select 2.0.* needed by tensorflow-2.10.1-cuda11.4_py38_1

    The environment can't be solved, aborting the operation

    critical libmamba Could not solve for environment specs

    However if I use our internal channel there is no solving issue and it works without problems.

    Would be great if you could look into that!

    Thanks!

    Thank you Marvin for providing the logs. Below are my comments on the issues reported
     
    Issue 1 - Fixed this issue. Please let me know if you still see any issues.
    Issue 2 - Use the command by replacing the label name "rocketce/label/rocketce-1.8.0" with channel name "rocketce"
    • micromamba install -n base -c rocketce -c main python=3.9 tensorflow pytorch

    Thanks a lot Rajesh!

    Issue 1: Installation is fixed - thanks! h
    However the build itself doesn't link OpenBLAS compared to the default numpy provided by conda/conda-forge and is therefore kinda quite slow:

    (rocketce) mambauser@7115e2ac3367:/tmp$ python -m timeit 'import numpy as np; N=1000; A=np.random.rand(N,N); B=np.random.rand(N,N); np.matmul(A,B)'

    1 loop, best of 5: 1.83 sec per loop

    (defaults) mambauser@7115e2ac3367:/tmp$ python -m timeit 'import numpy as np; N=1000; A=np.random.rand(N,N); B=np.random.rand(N,N); np.matmul(A,B)'

    1 loop, best of 5: 154 msec per loop

    I'm in discussion with opence developers to have that fixed.

    Issue 2: Thanks a lot that helps!
