Build from source
It is strongly recommended to install the released version. Try it if other installation methods result in errors.
Windows installation currently requires Visual C++ 2017 Build Tools.
Training on GPU requires NVIDIA Driver of version 418.xx or higher.
To install the R package directly from the CatBoost repository:
Install the libc header files on macOS and Linux.
Depending on the used OS:
- Linux: Install the appropriate package (for example, libc6-dev on Ubuntu)
Create a script file with the following code:
install.packages('devtools') devtools::install_github('catboost/catboost', subdir = 'catboost/R-package')
- Run the resulting script file.
