ALS graphchi error

User 986 | 11/25/2014, 10:16:47 PM

    hi danny,

    I am working on matrix factorization project and I need to compare my results with alternating least square algorithm for matrix factorization, I downloaded the graphchi library and try to run the algorithm but it give me this result:

    ./toolkits/collaborative_filtering/als --training=ua.base --validation=ua.test --lambda=0.065 --minval=1 --maxval=5 --max_iter=6 --quiet=1
    WARNING:  common.hpp(print_copyright:214): GraphChi Collaborative filtering library is written by Danny Bickson (c). Send any  comments or bug reports to

    [minval] => [1]
    [maxval] => [5]
    [max_iter] => [6]
    [quiet] => [1]
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)

    I am trying the command with smallnetflix_mm and smallnetflix_mme
    but it give me the same error :(

I apply the commands in <a href=""></a>

    I hope you can help me,

Hi, We highly recommend switching to GraphLab Create, as it will be easier for us to give support, and we have much newer functionality there.

Regarding GraphChi, please verify you are using a 64 bit machine. You should compile in debug mode (using "make clean; make cfd") and send us the error you are getting.
