Google released TensorFlow as open source for community use and improvement. From the site: “TensorFlow™ is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs.”

The instructions on tensorflow.org are aimed at Ubuntu and OS X. I had a need to install it on CentOS so I documented the steps in a github gist. Feel free to comment if you find something I missed:

** Updated 8/18/2016 for TensorFlow 0.10*

** Updated gist 10/18/2016 to correct typo in epel-release*

Hi there,

I tried follow your instruction I got this error:

You are using pip version 7.1.0, however version 8.1.1 is available.

You should consider upgrading via the ‘pip install –upgrade pip’ command.

tensorflow-0.7.1-cp27-none-linux_x86_64.whl is not a supported wheel on this platform.

I have python2.7 installed

Please ignore my previous post, when I run pip install –upgrade numpy scipy wheel cryptography, I got this error halfway “Failed building wheel for scipy”

I am using Centos 6.7, I have both python 2.6 and 2.7 installed on the server.

@ronnie I would try installing just wheel with `pip install –upgrade wheel` and work through the error messages from there.

Also, I’ll update the post… there is a new version of tensorflow out, and you should be using that.

Post updated for tensorflow 8

I posted another update for tensorflow 0.10
