Install conda

If conda is not already installed:

# answer y/yes to all prompts
# exit ssh session, then start a new ssh session

GroqFlow conda environment setup

Create and activate a groqflow conda environment

Create a groqflow conda environment and activate it

export PYTHON_VERSION=3.10.12
conda create -n groqflow python=$PYTHON_VERSION -y
conda activate groqflow

Install groqflow into the groqflow conda environment

Execute the following commands to install groqflow into the activated groqflow conda environment

# Alter this if you have cloned groqflow to some other location.
cd ~/groqflow
if [ -d "groqflow.egg-info" ]; then rm -r groqflow.egg-info; fi
pip install --upgrade pip
pip list --format=freeze > frozen.txt
pip install -r frozen.txt -e .
pushd . 
cd demo_helpers
if [ -d "groqflow_demo_helpers.egg-info" ]; then rm -r groqflow_demo_helpers.egg-info; fi
pip install -e .
pip install soundfile

Note: if you encounter problems trying to update an existing groqflow conda environment, consider removing the existing environment with the following command, and recreating it. Make sure you deactivate the environment before removing it.

  conda remove --name groqflow --all -y

Use Groqflow

To use groqfloq,

conda activate groqflow
Note: Always use a personal conda environment when installing packages on groq nodes; otherwise they can get installed into ~/.local and can cause problems when your shared home directory is used on other systems. If you encounter mysterious package dependency/version issues, check your ~/.local/lib and ~/.local/bin for mistakenly installed packages.

Note: The conda enviroment should be reinstalled whenever new groqflow code is pulled from the groqflow github; with a groqflow conda environment activated, redo just the pip install steps, including the removal of the egg-info directories.
