Installing with pip


This method is recommended to those who don't want to use Docker.

The FedML libray needs to be installed without dependencies because Pytorch is not available in pip on Jetson.

  1. install Pytorch using python wheels
  2. install rest of the dependencies with pip3 except torch and torchvision:
  3. install fedml without dependencies since they are installed manually.
pip3 install fedml --no-dependencies
