Does not seem to work with MXNET package in R

Trying to get mxnet running on a gpu instance has been a nightmare. Compiling from source fails to find openblas and installing through R studio fails to find 'igraph' package as well as a few other. I'm following two guides, one from mxnet and the other from Bitfusion, but aren't a linux guru (hence the preconfigured AMI)

CUDA/CUDNN are installed so using some other neural net software might be no issue.

Haven't heard back from support in ~3 days. Will update review when I do.

Great Performance, saved a lot of money

We have moved all our R applications to use the Bitfusion AMI. The performance is remarkable. We have started to use this AMI to spin up our SparkR clusters as well.
