I’m getting started on the MySQL and Python modules – others to follow.
But, I do not use Windows (well I do at work, but we can’t install anything on those machines). I have set myself up a new Linux (Devuan) VM just for the courses. Are there any hints or help documents anywhere to help me pick the right packages to install ?
And having installed them, starting the right services ?
I have MySQL running fine – been using that for years. At the moment it’s Python and Jupyter I’m a bit stuck with.
Thanks for reaching out and please excuse me for not getting back to you sooner.
Regarding MySQL – great. Regarding Python, and Jupyter in particular, I think there are two options that will suit your situation best.
- Please download the relevant installer from the Anaconda website. Currently, there are Linux versions that are available: https://www.anaconda.com/products/individual
- Should the issue persist, please consider using Google Colab. The latter is not a necessary requirement but might be helpful at least while you are solving the Jupyter installation.
Hope this helps.
Thanks. Been a little time getting back to this, only a “back burner” activity. Now have Anaconda & Jupyter installed and running fine, and working through the Python material.
