XGBoost on OSX out-of-the-box


#1

Hello everyone!

Can you advise if XGBoost should work on OSX if installed out of the box using just “pip install xgboost” command?

I’m using MBP15 with 2 GPUs, Python is 3.7.2. XGBoost comes from pip has version 0.9.0.

When I try to run it I got this error: “XGBoost version not compiled with GPU support”

More details:

/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/xgboost/core.py in _check_call(ret)
174 “”"
175 if ret != 0:
–> 176 raise XGBoostError(py_str(_LIB.XGBGetLastError()))
177
178

XGBoostError: [14:56:12] src/learner.cc:180: XGBoost version not compiled with GPU support.

We do not support GPU training out-of-box on OSX. You may try manually compiling XGBoost from the source. In general, however, we do not provide any support or guarantee for GPUs on Mac OSX.
