GraphLab Create 1.5.x on CentOS 6

The latest GraphLab Create 1.5.x requires zlib version > 1.2.3. However, 1.2.3 is the highest supported version on CentOS 6.x systems.

Here is how to upgrade zlib on your system.

Step 1: Download and compile the source code form http://www.zlib.net/

wget http://zlib.net/zlib-1.2.8.tar.gz Step 2: Untar the source code

tar -zxvf zlib-1.2.8.tar.gz Step 3: Compile zlib

cd zlib-1.2.8 ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/lib sudo make sudo make install If you do not have sudo permission, here is a workaround.

In Step 3: change the prefix to somewhere in your home directory, e.g. ~/zlib, and use "make; make install". Then you can copy ~/zlib/lib/*.so to the graphlab directory, which is typically under "venv/lib/python2.7/site-packages/graphlab/".

cd zlib-1.2.8 ./configure --prefix=~/zlib make make install cp ~/zlib/lib/* venv/lib/python2.7/site-packages/graphlab/
