Installation Error

Hi everyone,

I tried to install Tao Toolkit from this link: TAO Toolkit Quick Start Guide - NVIDIA Docs

When I tried this command, I get error:

Error like this:

I should use Tao Toolkit but if I couldn’t, only Retail dataset and pretrained model can be enough. I just want to use retail pretrained model. I need this model because my school project depends this dataset and model. Can you help me? I need retail dataset and pretrained model. Can you share with me?

For the error “nvidia-docker not found”, please

$ curl -s -L | \
sudo apt-key add -

$ distribution=$(. /etc/os-release;echo $ID$VERSION_ID)
$ curl -s -L$distribution/nvidia-docker.list | \
sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-docker.list
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install -y nvidia-docker2
$ sudo pkill -SIGHUP dockerd
$ sudo systemctl restart docker.service

Please refer to retail detection notebook in tao_tutorials/notebooks/tao_launcher_starter_kit/retail_object_detection/retail_object_detection.ipynb at main · NVIDIA/tao_tutorials · GitHub.


I still get the same error:

I think problem is happening because of this:

My operating system is ubuntu 20.04, not 18.04

And I want to ask you something. In this link Retail Object Detection | NVIDIA NGC you are telling to that “These models are trained on 1.5 million proprietary synthetic images.” but In this link you shared (tao_tutorials/notebooks/tao_launcher_starter_kit/retail_object_detection/retail_object_detection.ipynb at main · NVIDIA/tao_tutorials · GitHub), it says that a training was conducted using the Retail Product Checkout Dataset

This is internal dataset from Nvidia. It is not public.

Can you share the full log?
The commands I shared can work on Ubuntu20.04.


I reinstalled from scratch. I think the problem in the installation part has been solved. But now there is another problem:

Can you run below successfully?
$ tao info --verbose

Yes I can run

But still I can’t run “tao model dino train -e /home/doruk/getting_started_v5.3.0/notebooks/tao_launcher_starter_kit/retail_object_detection/specs/train.yaml results_dir=/home/doruk/getting_started_v5.3.0/notebooks/tao_launcher_starter_kit/retail_object_detection/retail_object_detection/results/”

Please try below to check if you can run inside the docker.
$ tao model dino run /bin/bash

Then, run commands as below without tao model.
# dino train xxx

When I run this $ tao model dino run /bin/bash, I get the following error:

This command has been working for almost 3-5 hours

It is not expected to pull the docker for almost 3-5 hours.
Could you run below to double check?
$ docker pull

If already pull successfully, please run below.
$ docker run --runtime=nvidia -it --rm /bin/bash

Is there a problem with docker installation? And now I get this error :

The error is similar to Problems of telemetry using detectnet_v2 using tao toolkit - #51 by usuario3602.

Please refer to its solution.
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-520 nvidia-container-toolkit

This solution doesn’t work for me.

Can you share the result of
$ nvidia-smi

It is not expected. Could you install driver as below?
$ sudo apt install nvidia-driver-535

Then reboot.

I did it but:

So, it is still not getting any result when you run $nvidia-smi

That’s not expected.

Can you share the log when you run
$ sudo apt install nvidia-driver-535

I think driver is installed. But Nvidia-smi doesn’t work. Tao training and also doesnt work.
