System Requirements

SMAC has the following system requirements:

  • Linux operating system (for example Ubuntu),

  • Python (>=3.5.2).

  • C++ compiler (with C++11 supports) and SWIG (version 3.0 or later)

To install the C++ compiler and SWIG system-wide on a linux system with apt, please call:

sudo apt-get install build-essential swig

If you use Anaconda, you have to install both, gcc and SWIG, from Anaconda to prevent compilation errors:

conda install gxx_linux-64 gcc_linux-64 swig
