I’d just like to record here how I finally managed to install catalyst with Python 3.6 on a Ubuntu machine. I did too many things to remember the exact steps, but here are the essential ones:
- Install miniconda
- Try to install the environment as in the tutorial with the yml file, it fails.
- Create the environment manually as in the troubleshooting part of the tutorial.
pip install enigma-catalyst matplotlib, it fails with a cannot build wheel error.
- Install manually all the packages you can through conda: scipy, numpy, pandas, statsmodels, etc…
- Install gcc with
sudo apt-get install gcc.
- Install build-essential
apt-get -y install build-essential
pip install enigma-catalyst matplotlibwent through.
