Faceswap.py Does not startup after installing it and installing the missing modules

Post by theimagera »

Hi, I have tried to setup faceswap.py peviously on an old pc and it worked.
I have chosen the same configuration and it somehow does not work. When I try to open it with the power shell, it gives me this error;

Code: Select all

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "faceswap.py", line 5, in <module>
    from lib.cli import args
  File "C:\Users\randy\Faceswap\lib\cli\args.py", line 11, in <module>
    from lib.utils import get_backend
  File "C:\Users\randy\Faceswap\lib\utils.py", line 18, in <module>
    from tqdm import tqdm
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'tqdm'
I then installed the module with pip and then get this error;

Code: Select all

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "faceswap.py", line 5, in <module>
    from lib.cli import args

    from lib.gpu_stats import GPUStats
  File "C:\Users\randy\Faceswap\lib\gpu_stats.py", line 20, in <module>
    import pynvml
Now I installed that with pip and I get this final error;

There was an error reading from the Nvidia Machine Learning Library. Either you do not have an Nvidia GPU (in which case this warning can be ignored) or the most likely cause is incorrectly installed drivers. If this is the case, Please remove and reinstall your Nvidia drivers before reporting.Original Error: NVML Shared Library Not Found

I am using python 3,8.5 with the latest version of faceswap.py.
Can anyone please help me? I would really appreciate it.

How are you installing Faceswap? What OS are you using?

I also don't have that great of a GPU but I did install with the CPU option
The GPU is Nvidia GTX 275.
The CPU is AMD FX(tm)-4100 Quad-Core Processor

Yeah, there is no way that that GPU will run faceswap.

If you still want to proceed though, then please follow (all) of these steps and then run the Windows Installer

Hi, weirdly enough I still get the same error after doing these steps as you asked.
I removed python with anaconda and miniconda.
I removed every python file & conda file.
I couldn't find any CUDA files for some reason.
I removed the faceswap folder
I rebooted the machine and then I re-installed it and still get the same error.

Maybe there are still some cuda files somewhere that I could not find. If so, can you please tell me where they normally get installed?

Torzdf mentioned your gpu. He's 99.8% correct usually :-)
Think you need to support cuda 10.5 on the gpu?
AT less than 2GB VRAM I don't think it would run anyway.
I can't look it up easily from work. The 900 series on works.l with 4gb++ vram
:o I dunno what I'm doing :shock:

Yeah, Thanks anyway tho. Will a Nvidia GTX 1650 work with the faceswap program and if it does, does it actually run faster than a CPU?
