GraphLab Create 1.5.1 on Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)

User 4 | 7/21/2015, 8:22:13 PM

Due to a bug in 1.5.1, GraphLab Create crashes upon launch in Mac OS X prior to 10.10 (Yosemite).

If you are on Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) this workaround applies. If you are on Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) you may need to apply the workaround here in addition to this one.

We are working on a fix, but in the meantime, you can run some additional code after installation to get up and running:


Substitute dato-env for the path of the environment where you installed GraphLab Create.

This could be a conda env, virtualenv, etc.

cd dato-env/lib/python2.7/site-packages/graphlab installnametool -addrpath $PWD ./unityserver `

There will be no output if the command succeeds. After running that command, GraphLab Create should run correctly in that Python environment.

This issue has been fixed by the new release 1.5.2. pip install --upgrade graphlab-create==1.5.2 on Mac OS X 10.9 will install 1.5.2 which no longer requires this fix.
