This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘
sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Anaconda Python on a Fedora 36.

Step 1. Before proceeding, update your Fedora operating system to make sure all existing packages are up to date. Use this command to update the server packages:
sudo dnf upgrade sudo dnf update sudo dnf install dnf-plugins-core
Step 2. Installing Anaconda on Fedora 36.
By default, the Anaconda package does not come in the default repository of Fedora 36. Now go to the downloads page of Anaconda’s website and download the Anaconda script installer to your Fedora system:
Next, set the permission on the downloaded script:
chmod +x Anaconda3-2022.05-Linux-x86_64.sh
Let’s move to the next step and execute the Anaconda installer script as below:
Once installation is finished, use the following command to activate the Anaconda environment:
Now we are in the default base of the programming environment. To verify the installation we will open conda list:
# packages in environment at /home/idroot/anaconda3: # # Name Version Build Channel _ipyw_jlab_nb_ext_conf 0.1.0 py38_0 _libgcc_mutex 0.1 main alabaster 0.7.12 pyhd3eb1b0_0 anaconda 2021.05 py38_0 anaconda-client 1.7.2 py38_0 anaconda-navigator 2.0.3 py38_0 anaconda-project 0.9.1 pyhd3eb1b0_1 anyio 2.2.0 py38h06a4308_1 appdirs 1.4.4 py_0 argh 0.26.2 py38_0 argon2-cffi 20.1.0 py38h27cfd23_1 asn1crypto 1.4.0 py_0 astroid 2.5 py38h06a4308_1
