How To Install Anaconda on Fedora 36

Install Anaconda on Fedora 36

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Anaconda on Fedora 36. For those of you who didn’t know, Anaconda is a distribution of the Python and R programming languages for scientific computing, that aims to simplify package management and deployment. It includes packages related to data science for various platforms like Linux, Windows, and macOS.

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.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 36.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo useror access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Anaconda on 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

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:

source ~/.bashrc

Now we are in the default base of the programming environment. To verify the installation we will open conda list:

conda list
