You can start an interactive Theano session on the login nodes by loading the corresponding modules and starting the Python interpreter.
[leonhard@euler09 ~]$ module load new gcc/4.8.2 python/2.7.12 [leonhard@euler09 ~]$ python Python 2.7.12 (default, Nov 2 2016, 13:46:00) [GCC 4.8.2] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import theano >>> theano.__version__ '0.8.2' >>>
Please note that you should use interactive sessions only for very short test that do not use a lot of CPU capacity. You have to submit all other computations as a batch job.
