RuntimeError:An attempt has been made to start a new process before the……

Key errors are as follows:

RuntimeError:
        An attempt has been made to start a new process before the
        current process has finished its bootstrapping phase.

        This probably means that you are not using fork to start your
        child processes and you have forgotten to use the proper idiom
        in the main module:

            if __name__ == '__main__':
                freeze_support()
                ...

        The "freeze_support()" line can be omitted if the program
        is not going to be frozen to produce an executable.

All error prompts are as follows:

Original code:


    torch.manual_seed(args.seed)
    checkpoint = utility.checkpoint(args)

    if checkpoint.ok:
        loader = data.Data(args)
        model = model.Model(args, checkpoint)
        loss = loss.Loss(args, checkpoint) if not args.test_only else None
        t = Trainer(args, loader, model, loss, checkpoint)
        while not t.terminate():
            t.train()
            t.test()

        checkpoint.done()

After modification:

if __name__ == '__main__':
    torch.manual_seed(args.seed)
    checkpoint = utility.checkpoint(args)

    if checkpoint.ok:
        loader = data.Data(args)
        model = model.Model(args, checkpoint)
        loss = loss.Loss(args, checkpoint) if not args.test_only else None
        t = Trainer(args, loader, model, loss, checkpoint)
        while not t.terminate():
            t.train()
            t.test()

        checkpoint.done()
