Perhaps others will have more to say or disagree but...

In general we never recommended automatically installing anything on a users system without them knowing (ie.  You shouldn't be installing modules and packages in the onLoad and this should be removed) It should be included in the README and as an INSTALL file included in the package top level directory.  Any needed module or system dependency should be assumed to be installed correctly on a users system and if you need the builders to have something installed a request made via this mailing list (Please let us know if you think something is missing and needs to be installed on the daily builders - we would generally then look for the INSTALL file on the git repository for installation instructions if it was justifiable)

Right now tensorflow is unavailable on our windows server (tokay1) as we have not updated to python 3 (but will be in the near future)  The windows error can be ignored for now.

Subject: [Bioc-devel] Build error due to TensorFlow installation

Dear all,

since I replaced some old C++ code with TensorFlow I am getting some
build errors on merida1 and tokay1 regarding installation (even though I
install TF and TF Probability during /.onLoad/)


Does anyone know how I can fix this or did anyone use TF with
Bioconductor so far?

Many thanks in advance.
