PyTorch for Jetson - version 1.11 now available

When I try to verify my pytorch installation, it gives me
"python3 -c “import torchvision; print(torchvision.version)”
Illegal instruction (core dumped)

OK, that worked, thanks!

torchlight appears to be a separate package that I am not familiar with, so you would need to make sure the correct version that your project expects is installed.

Is it possible that you upgraded pip3? If so, it may have upgraded numpy, and there is a bug in numpy v1.19.5: Illegal instruction (core dumped) on import for numpy 1.19.5 on ARM64 · Issue #18131 · numpy/numpy · GitHub

As a workaround, export OPENBLAS_CORETYPE=ARMV8 first.

Thanks. It worked

Are you familiar with h5py? When downloading h5py it keeps giving errors:

Sorry, I am not familiar with h5py, although I think you can install it with sudo apt-get install python3-h5py

You may also want to try this suggestion to install BLAS/LAPACK first:

sudo apt-get install libblas-dev liblapack-dev libatlas-base-dev gfortran

If that still doesn’t fix it, you may want to post a new topic about it. Thanks.

Hi all, hoping you can help me. I am trying to get torch and torchvision installed on my new Jetson Nano with Python version 3.6.7.

I did some searching and tried to fix it using sudo apt-get install gcc-multilib g++-multilib but no luck. It responded with:

Package gcc-multilib is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'gcc-multilib' has no installation candidate
E: Unable to locate package g++-multilib
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'g++-multilib'

Any ideas how to fix this?

Hi @jetson_mason, are you inside an archiconda environment? I see some things about that in your errors logs - I haven’t tried it with conda before. If so, can you build it outside of conda environment with python3?

Hi @dusty_nv, good catch. That did the trick. Installed python3.6 instead and tried again. It built successfully and I can run import torchvision without any errors now. Thanks!

I was build a file wheel for PyTorch 1.7, Python 3.8 by Jetson Nano.
@dusty_nv Please verify and confirm for otherspeople.

I’m trying to compile PyTorch 1.8 (rc4) or 1.9 (dev), and every time I try to compile either version, GCC crashes when building I tried GCC 7 and GCC 8. Full command that causes crash (if I run it manually, the crash happens too so it is reproducible).

I have exported variables recommended in the original post, and I also have tried some other environment variables, outcome is always the same. Even with BUILD_CAFFE2_OPS=0 BUILD_CAFFE2=0 the crash still happens. I did not try to disable CUDA because I need it.

The error in the terminal is very long, so I quote here only the end:

Hi @Lissanro, I haven’t tried to build these yet - is it perhaps related to this PyTorch PR?

If not, can you file an issue about it on PyTorch GitHub and link to it here?

I will try the PR you linked tomorrow. Building PyTorch is very slow and takes whole day so it will take a while before I can confirm if it helped.

In the meantime I have found the following workaround. First, I use git clean -fdx to get rid of any old build files. Then I start building the wheel:


As soon as CMake finishes initial configuration and prints “Build files have been written”, I apply the following patch:

It forces to use Debug build configuration for and (each of them causes compiler crash if build configuration is set to Release). This way I was able to build PyTorch 1.9 (for 1.8 the workaround should work too).

I expect the patch from the PR you mentioned will at least solve the issue with CopysignKernel and allow to compile it in Release build configuration. Not sure yet if it will help with BinaryMulDivKernel issue. I will report back as soon as I know if the PR solved the problem fully or partially.

Hey! I’m trying to get pytorch installed on my Jetson TX2 but I failed. My python version is 3.6.13,Jetpack version 4.4.1[L4T 32.4.4]. And I have successfully installed pip, libopenblas-base, libopenmpi-dev and Cython. When I try to pip install torch1.7.0xxx.whl:

I have tried the PR. It did not work at first. I had to replace the following in 4 places:

(__GNUC__ > 8 || (__GNUC__ == 8 && __GNUC_MINOR__ > 3))

With this:

(__GNUC__ > 8)

To make it work. I guess somebody thought the bug will be fixed in GCC higher than 8.3 but even with 8.4.0 it still crashes. Here is updated patch which can be applied to current pytorch: http://Dragon.Studio/2021/03/51834.diff. On top of this patch, the patch for issue #8103 is still necessary too.

I left a comment in pytorch PR #51834 about this to let them know that with GCC 8.4 the workaround is still necessary otherwise the compiler will crash.

Hi @329992704, @Jackey_S, I just re-downloaded and re-installed the PyTorch 1.7 wheel, and did not get this file corruption error. Can you try downloading the wheel again? Perhaps it was a connection issue or temporarily problem with

When will 1.8 be available?

I will try to build it today and will report back.

OK, PyTorch 1.8.0 wheel is posted here:

It needed this patch to build, which includes the fixes that @Lissanro mentioned.
