The random forest used in SMAC depends on a C++11 compatible compiler and on SWIG (>3.0).

To install both requirements 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

Installation from pypi

To install SMAC3 from pypi, please use the following command on the command line:

pip install smac

If you want to install it in the user space (e.g., because of missing permissions), please add the option --user or create a virtualenv.
