19 Sorry for the problems. I saw your other thread about downgrading
20 Gentoo. I agree with the other responses you got there that Gentoo, in
21 general, does not support standing still much less going backward.
23 I will offer what will probably not be a popular comment but my
24 opinion is Gentoo is exactly the wrong sort of distribution for doing
25 work in tensorflow. With all of it's updates, limited testing of
26 packages, extreme amounts of code building, and not being a distro
27 that the official tensorflow folks even verify on, it's just too hard.
28 (And a contributing factor to how I moved away in the beginning.)
30 My thought is that you might create a 20.04 LTS Ubuntu VM (or possibly
31 an LXC container) running whatever your desktop flavor of Gentoo is -
32 I run Kubuntu - and just run tensorflow in the VM. You won't easily
33 get GPU support unless you deal with passthrough, but the software
34 will just work and you won't spend time dealing with building code
35 which can be spent coding tensorflow.
37 If you insist on running in Gentoo consider the LXD container running
38 an older rev of Gentoo. (If you can find one) Get it working, if you
39 can, and then never update it.
41 lxc image list images: gentoo
43 There are openrc and systemd versions available, but a Kubuntu stable
44 container would more likely to 'just work' IMO.
46 Good luck,
47 Mark
