importerror: cannot import name prepare_model_for_kbit_training from peft error occurs mainly if either peft module is not properly installed or its path is not correctly. Sometimes we also get this error because of version incompatibility of peft module. In this article, we will explore the best ways to fix this all type of issue. So Let’s start.
Importerror: cannot import name prepare_model_for_kbit_training from peft ( Solution ) –
The best way to fix this issue is to reinstall the peft module. Here we will take a unique turn, we will use pip package manager, and the source will not be PyPI hub. We will use the git repo for this.
Solution 1: Peft Installation using pip and source as git –
Here is the command for peft installation using pip and git.
pip install git+https://github.com/huggingface/peft
Typically when we use the pip command it automatically downloads the wheel or binary for the PyPI hub. But here we have a different source. We would download the file for the official git of HuggingFace ( peft).
Solution 2: Peft Installation using pip and source as PyPI Hub-
Unlike the above solution. Here we will not take a unique route but we will go with our usual path. The typical Python module installation way. We will use “pip install package_name”. It will install the latest version for PEFT.
pip install -q -U peft
we can add the ‘sudo’ keyword to avoid the admin access privilege issue. This is specific to the Linux Keyword. Windows users can launch the cmd in admin privileges. Then the same command will work.
This was an importerror. Although all the importerrors are different but there are some basic principal which is common in all type of importerror fixes. Please go throw the article for more detail. I hope now you are able to fix the above issue.
