rasterizer_op.so: undefined symbol #656


sincere thanks for developing this TF module. I use TF quite a bit but this is my first time with TF_graphics. I am getting the following error when trying to run inverse_rendering.ipynb locally on my machine - in particular this occurs in the Run Optimization cell:

My environment:

Ubuntu 18.04
TF - I tried versions: 2.4.1, 2.5.0
Tensorflow_graphics: latest - 2021.10.21
CUDA: 11.0
cuDNN: 8.1.0

What am I missing out? Your help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks again for this superb effort.

I just realised that a similar problem was stated here - but for Google colab (same notebook - inverse_rendering.ipynb):


But I seem to be facing the same issue in a local install. How to resolve this?

Created 6 months ago

Hi I was able to resolve this issue more or less. I thought of including my experience here for others while closing the issue.

The ticket that helped resolve my issue was: #535

  • Note-1: I had to use the --force-reinstall flag while pip installing tensorflow_graphics to ensure that all dependencies were actually updated (including TF versions).
  • Note-2: tensorflow-graphics-gpu is apparently deprecated: #152

Basically I had two issues: (i) OpenExr doesn't always install correctly in all environments (like macos BigSur, or AWS EC2 Ubuntu), but I didn't even need it (ii) I had to ensure that all dependencies were correctly updated by using the --force-reinstall flag.

To summarise, this is what I could use:

  1. To use OpenExr:
wget https://github.com/AcademySoftwareFoundation/openexr/archive/v2.5.5.tar.gz                                                                                                                                                                                         
tar -xvf v2.5.5.tar.gz                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
cd openexr-2.5.5/                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
mkdir build                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
cd build                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
cmake ../                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
sudo make install                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
  1. To ignore OpenExr, I installed tensorflow_graphics from source by commenting out the requirement for OpenExr, following again #535:
git clone https://github.com/tensorflow/graphics.git                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
cd graphics
# XXX MANUAL: Comment out OpenEXR in requirements.txt XXX                                                                                                                                                                                                               
python setup.py sdist bdist_wheel   # Build pip pkg.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
pip install --upgrade dist/*.whl --force-reinstall                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Note that you have to use setup.py instead of build_pip_pkg.sh as per the documentation.

Whether I installed tensorflow-graphics from source or pip I had to use the --force-reinstall flag.

Caveat: the --force-reinstall flag sometimes updates keras to version 2.7 which has other issues, so after everything I had to (sometimes) downgrade keras to 2.6.* by running

pip install keras==2.6.*

Thanks to the developers again for this fabulous work!
