I installed Rasa on my new apple M1 (MacBook Pro/Big Sur 11.0.1), and get the following problem when using any Rasa command (init, train, …):
zsh: illegal hardware instruction rasa init (train/…)
I attached the associated console crash report. The problem seems to be related to libtensorflow_framework.2.dylib
I would be very appreciative of your help.
Thank you, Matthias

Ooop! Will be following this. I’m very much interested in getting an M1 Mac Mini in part to improve my training times when training locally.
Can you clarify your setup? Are you running rasa directly or inside a VM?
I run rasa inside a VM (venv).
Hi All, Facing same issue…
Yes @Rasa PLEASE support RASA/Tensorflow operations for the new Apple M1 chips. We can try setting up a virtual machine, but it’s far less convenient than being able to run simple operations locally.
I am also having the same issue. please guide us and help to solve this problem.
Same here. Any progress in the matter???
Hi everyone, sorry for the slow response! This is actually a tensorflow problem (see here).
Hi @fkoerner. I know it is a TF problem. But was hoping that you at Rasa could make a branch that supports this initiative from Apple, GitHub - apple/tensorflow_macos: TensorFlow for macOS 11.0+ accelerated using Apple's ML Compute framework., for all us M1 owners. Even if some people say it still have some bugs. Like a “on your own risk” branch would be awesome.
I myself get in trouble with Rasa and Numpy version when using Apple’s TF initiative. So I was hoping that you at Rasa could make a little effort and see if you guys could make this work if it is just as simple as supporting the right version of Numpy (or some other libraries).
See [Apple M1 processor and Rasa].
@osterhult I see, thank you for clarifying! I’m not sure whether this is possible. I’ll check it out and get back to you.
@fkoerner heaps of thanks.
Just thought I follow up this with issue with you. Any news on running Rasa on my Apple M1?
Hi @osterhult, sorry for the delay, I have taken this on and am working on a branch, but among other things I had some hurdles updating to Big Sur (without which I could not install
tensorflow_macos). I will update this when I have more information.
@fkoerner thank you. Let me know if there is anything I could to help out.
@fkoerner hey there… any news? just wondering
Also still curious about this. Thanks!
Hi @osterhult, @Chris98106 sorry for the delay again, I have been trying to get this to work but unfortunately it seems that using
tensorflow-macos is not possible due to the tensorflow version the branch is based on. The tensorflow-macos version is based on
r2.4rc0, which is incompatible with current rasa (module attributes have changed since the last rasa-compatible version
We’ve looked into updating the tensorflow dependency for rasa, but cannot due to a bug on the tensorflow side. There’s an issue for the bug here. If
tensorflow-macos expands support to other tensorflow versions, or the above bug is fixed, the situation may change, in which case I will be happy to give this another shot. Thank you for your patience with this!
