This is a general conda installation guide on NCI HPC. The process described in this wiki is fully implemented and tested on Raijin.

Download Miniconda

It seems now that only the latest Miniconda bash installer can be downloaded. Go into the folder where suitable for the binary,


There are various version of the Miniconda2/3 archived on raijin,

cd /projects/access/apps/conda/software
ls -l
total 214528
-rw-r-----+ 1 wml548 access.admin 52063402 Aug 15 14:52
-rw-r--r--+ 1 wml548 access.admin 34663461 Aug 15 14:52
-rw-r--r--+ 1 wml548 access.admin 57669415 Aug 15 14:52

Install Miniconda

The process applies to any version of the bash installer.

cd PATH_to_miniconda_bash_installer
# enter to continue
# review the license and accept the license by typing yes
# specify the location for installation
# $ver=4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 
# say no to adding conda path to .bashrc

Update Miniconda

To update Miniconda to the latest version

cd /projects/access/apps/miniconda/$version/bin
conda update conda

To update conda to a certain version,

cd /projects/access/apps/miniconda/$version/bin
# new_version>$version, e.g., 4.5>4.3
conda install conda=$new_version

Set up Miniconda Module

cd /projects/access/modules/miniconda/
touch $version

The file $version is as ($version=4.7)

# Module for ACCESS Anaconda
# Note: The same module file is used for all environments

# Don't allow multiple conda environements
conflict conda

set prefix /projects/access/apps/miniconda
set version "4.7"

setenv CONDA_PREFIX $prefix/$version

prepend-path PATH $prefix/$version/bin
