Graphlab import and installation

User 2365 | 10/16/2015, 9:51:15 PM

Hi all,

How do i know if graph lab is installed correctly on my system? I get errors irrespective of which graph lab commands i run.

for example following ` sf = SFrames('people-example.csv')

NameError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipython-input-2-32b3296e2a0a> in <module>() ----> 1 sf = SFrames('people-example.csv')

NameError: name 'SFrames' is not defined ` Can you please help me ? Thank you

Hello Rajesh,

Are you able to import the graphlab module correctly? Python works with a module system (as described in, so all non-builtin commands must be imported before use. In your case, assuming you called import graphlab, it would also be graphlab.SFrame, not SFrames.

Hi Rajesh,

Seems like the people-example.csv file does not exist in the folder you are working on. Can you check if you have downloaded the file? The file you have downloaded maybe a zip file, check if you have a file called in your download folder. If yes, please unzip that file and you will get people-example.csv.

Hope this helps! Ping

Hi Ping,

I have the people-example.csv file, it exists as .csv file. Do i need to copy it to a specific folder? I also tried giving the entire path. That doesn't work either

Thank you Rajesh
