NeMo asr fails to build on Xavier JetPack

I’m trying to use NeMo for speech on Xavier. To install NeMo asr I do the following:

cd nemo_asr
sudo pip3 install .

A build occurs, and I install a number of dependencies. The one I can’t seem to resolve is llvmlite. It seems to require llvm 7.0 but this JetPack (4.3) seems to have llvm 6.0

Having trouble navigating this forum on the Xavier. I’ll paste error text when I get that to work.


There’s so much spew I don’t know where to start. But there seem to be two errors: scipy and llvmlite:

update on the subject:

You can install llvmlite on the Jetson using pip like this :

$ apt install llvm-10 llvm

then add a symbolic link to the new llvm-config-10 binary inside /usr/bin

$ cd /usr/bin && ln -s /usr/bin/llvm-config-10 llvm-config
then run pip install llvmlite
