This is my attempt at blogging and reserving my place on the WWW. And what else to blog except what I do for a living, Networking, Linux and VMware. I will try and share as much information as I can about whatever that I learn about those areas in specific and technology in general.

  1. Greetings

    First, I am so sorry foe this inconvenience. Then, I would greatly appreciate if you could let me know how to install Hyperopt. In fact, I am using anaconda on windows 10 so I tried this instruction to install it as it shows below:

    (C:\Users\Markazi.co\ Anaconda3) C:\Users\Markazi.co>conda install -c jaikumarm hyperopt=0.1
    Fetching package metadata ………..
    Solving package specifications: .

    PackageNotFoundError: Package not found: ” Package missing in current win-64 channels:
    – hyperopt 0.1*

    You can search for packages on anaconda.org with

    anaconda search -t conda hyperopt

    (C:\Users\Markazi.co\ Anaconda3) C:\Users\Markazi.co>conda install -c jaikumarm hyperopt
    Fetching package metadata ………..
    Solving package specifications: ……….

    # All requested packages already installed.
    # packages in environment at C:\Users\Markazi.co\Anaconda3:
    hyperopt 0.0.3.dev py35_0 jaikumarm

    (C:\Users\Markazi.co\ Anaconda3) C:\Users\Markazi.co>

    Although it seems that the packages are installed, this error is reported:

    ImportError: cannot import name ‘hp’

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards,

    1. sorry for the late reply, for some reason this comment got caught in spam.
