Failed building wheel of h5py

I tried building h5py==3.1.0 in a clean environment using docker, as demonstrated by @AastaLLL. Failed building wheel of h5py - #5 by AastaLLL
Through this, I was able to obtain the whl file.

mkdir ~/data
sudo docker run -it --rm --runtime nvidia -v $HOME/data/:/data/ /bin/bash

apt-get update
apt-get install -y python3-pip pkg-config
apt-get install -y libhdf5-serial-dev hdf5-tools libhdf5-dev zlib1g-dev zip libjpeg8-dev liblapack-dev libblas-dev gfortran
pip3 install -U pip testresources setuptools
ln -s /usr/include/locale.h /usr/include/xlocale.h
pip3 install --verbose 'protobuf<4' 'Cython<3'
pip3 install numpy==1.19.4 pkgconfig==1.5.5
apt-get install -y git
git clone
cd h5py
git checkout 3.1.0
git config ""
git config "Your Name"
git cherry-pick 3bf862daa4ebeb2eeaf3a0491e05f5415c1818e4

cp dist/h5py-3.1.0-cp36-cp36m-linux_aarch64.whl /data/

ls -l ~/data/h5py-3.1.0-cp36-cp36m-linux_aarch64.whl

Thanks for this reply, it really helped me get on track again, I really appreciate it!

Now I understand some of the versions involved and the base image name. Would you share with me the proper way to build the tensorflow for this version? I am trying to use the latest Jetpack , i.e. Jetpack 4.6.1 or 4.6.4.

I think the repos that I am pointing to by default don’t have the nv22.1 part? What is nv22.1? I am getting the following error:

Removing intermediate container 77e72898829b

As there are several sets of instuctions floating around out there, hoping for some clarity from you. Should the instructions be as shown above (from @dusty_nv ):

wget --no-check-certificate
pip3 install --verbose tensorflow-2.7.0+nv22.1-cp36-cp36m-linux_aarch64.whl

— OR –
(from the Dockerfile for jetbot 0.43 release)


ARG TENSORFLOW_WHL=tensorflow-1.15.2+nv-cp36-cp36m-linux_aarch64.whl

RUN wget --quiet --show-progress --progress=bar:force:noscroll --no-check-certificate ${TENSORFLOW_URL} -O ${TENSORFLOW_WHL} &&
pip3 install ${TENSORFLOW_WHL} --verbose &&

I am trying to use the jetbot 0.43 release… with 4.6.1 or 4.6.4
jetston Dev kit

—OR —
(thinking out loud)
Should I somehow layer in the correct version of the tensorflow image here on top of the base image?

This topic is about building h5py, so I recommend creating a new topic for discussions outside of this. If you’re looking for JetBot JetPack 4.6.1, there are already places that provide it. I suggest asking on their Discord channel.ソフトウェア設定/01.Jetson%20Nano/02.OSアップグレード手順/03.jetbot/

Thank you!! Works perfect!!
