May I install/update software on my VM?

All software running in user space can be installed/updated by the user himself.

Re: May I install/update software on my VM?


Dear RSS VM Team,

when I tried to install dependencies with pip I get the message:

Sorry, user pi is not allowed to execute '/bin/pip install whatever' as root on CToolbox_IPT_Andreas_Braun.


 

The apt-get command is neither found. I'm afraid I am missing something crucial here but I don't want to mess up the system cofiguration.

Dear Andreas Braun,

Seeing your message it seems that: you try to execute /bin/pip.

Instead, if you install anaconda with all the packages you need in your user space you should not need being root, and everything will be installed under the anaconda directory, not producing any conflict with the system.

 

In addition, apt-get command is available for ubuntu and similars, not existing for CentOS. CentOS uses yum, but for such case you need to ask us either:

1) that we install the packages for you

2) give you provisionally root privilege

I hope this solves your doubts.

 

In my opinion I would choose the option to install anaconda, since you will be able to install any other needed packages also in the future.

Let us know

Thank you, Manuel, for your explanations! I received temporary root privilleges and will also try the Anaconda installation in user space.
