A simple walkthrough to install and Anaconda 4.3.0 on Centos 7.
As always, this is as much documentation for me as it is intended to be a tutorial but suggested corrections, additions and omissions are welcomed.
Download the latest installer from the Continuum Analytics:
mkdir /opt/python cd /opt/python wget https://repo.continuum.io/archive/Anaconda2-4.3.0-Linux-x86_64.sh
It will ask you to continue:
It will ask you where you want to install. I personally use
/opt for all 3rd party packages so I elected to use:
It will ask you if you want to add the binaries to the root’s
~/.bashrc, which you may want to do, but I elected not to as I’m not ever expecting to be running Python or any Python services as root.
If you installed as a user to a writeable location, you should say “yes” here and hit enter.
If you ran with
sudo make sure to add the binaries to the path in your user’s
echo 'export PATH="/opt/anaconda/anaconda2/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc
You should now have a successful install!
python --version # Python 2.7.5
