As a follow-up to it would be nice to be able to install the conda package manager on a Solus system.

I don't 100% understand whether the difference between conda and miniconda2 (or miniconda3 respectively) and what would be the best solution for a Solus package.

DataDrake moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.

For those confused:

  • Anaconda -> Distribution of Python and Libraries for scientific use (Full install of officially supported Conda libraries/tools)
  • Miniconda -> Bundle of Python environment and Conda tool (miniconda2 -> python 2, miniconda3 -> python3)
  • Conda -> tool for managing python libraries/tools and their dependencies in virtual environments

I am accepting this under the premise that people will use this to manage a Python virtual environment and not system libraries

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for 6 months now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.

most people use the anaconda install script
I don't think this is worth investing time
