ML Docker Image installed on the Interaction Station ML computers (Ubuntu 16.04):

Installing Docker CE:

Change Docker root dir using systemd (Don't do this, set volume instead)

Docker - clean up all the volumes

  • sudo docker system prune -a -f --volumes

Installing nvidia-docker:

Installing docker-compose:

Installing nvidia-docker-compose:

Using Docker with nvidia-docker-compose

  • Dir structure:
  • docker-compose.yml
  • deepo
  • deepo/
  • deepo/Dockerfile
  • deepo_data (folder that is visible by deepo image)
  • docker-compose.yml:
version: '3'
  #machine name
    #container name
    container_name: deepo
    #path to Dockerfile
    build: deepo
    command: sh
      - ./deepo_data:/media/deepo_data
    tty: true
  • Dockerfile:

FROM ufoym/deepo ADD /

  1. !/bin/bash

sh -c 'while :; do sleep 100; done'

  • We need that endless loop, because docker-compose closes the container when is deployed
  • The endless loop allowed us to use it with a docker exec

Run it

  • Steps 1 and 2: Within the folder where is the docker-compose.yml file
  • sudo nvidia-docker-compose build
  • sudo nvidia-docker-compose up
  • Step 3: From another terminal:
  • sudo nvidia-docker exec -it deepo bash

Troubleshooting problems


It includes:

  • cudnn
  • theano
  • tensorflow
  • sonnet
  • pytorch
  • keras
  • lasagne
  • mxnet
  • cntk
  • chainer
  • caffe
  • caffe2
  • torch

Installing Deepo:

Run Deepo image with Docker:

  • sudo nvidia-docker run -it ufoym/deepo:gpu bash

Run Deepo image with Docker (with python 2.7):

  • sudo nvidia-docker run -it ufoym/deepo:py27 bash

Setting up ML computers:

  • Linux distribution installed: Ubuntu 16.04

Partition made for machine learning:MachineLearning

  • In Windows: Disk Management -> Resize DataStorage
  • Create new ext4 patition

Mounting the partition automatically:

Get the UUID of the learning:MachineLearning partition

  • sudo blkid

Add partition to fstab:

  • sudo nano /etc/fstab
  • Add at the bottom these two lines:
  • UUID=(id of the MachineLearning partition) /media/MachineLearning rw,suid,dev,auto,user,async,exec 0 2
  • UUID=(id of the DataStorage partition) /media/DataStorage ntfs-3g defaults=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

Give writing permissions to new MachineLearning partition

  • sudo chmod -R a+rwx /media/MachineLearning/
  • Need extra space? Extending the partition

Installing NVIDIA Driver:

  • Set Ubuntu to boot on console mode. Type:
  • sudo apt-get install systemd
  • sudo systemctl set-default
  • sudo reboot now
  • Login and in console mode, type:
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
  • sudo apt update
  • sudo apt upgrade
  • For GeForce 1070Ti (07/2018), type:
  • sudo apt-get install nvidia-390
  • Re-set Ubuntu to boot on graphical mode. Type:
  • sudo systemctl set-default
  • sudo reboot now

Checking if Nvidia Driver is properly installed. Type:

  • nvidia-smi
  • nvidia-settings

Installing CUDA 9.0 for Ubuntu 16.04 (the latest version is not supported by TensorFlow):

Checking if CUDA is properly installed. Type:

  • nvcc --version

Resources used:

Other options:

NTFS fstab wizard:

  • sudo apt-get install ntfs-config
  • sudo ntfs-config

Format large capacity HD with fs ExFat for having access to it from Ubuntu:

  • On Windows 10
  • cmd
  • diskpart
  • select disk '#' (where # is the number of the target drive)
  • list part
  • select part # (where # is the number of the partition)
  • format fs=exfat QUICK
