MB) exceeds the OS limit of 2MB. i have this message when i try to open or activate or else

Hi there, welcome to the forum.

So, you should install it.

sudo pacman -S anaconda

If this is not what you need. Check this Conda wiki page which suggestes to install python-conda from the AUR repository.
That one is not in the Chaotic-AUR, so you have to build it. Use the paru helper:

paru python-conda

Check the displayed PKGBUILD or exit with button Q, the confirm installation.

Please remember that, also for trivial topics, you should always include the output of your garuda-inxi, as requested in the template shown at topic creation.


I installed anaconda for this and post install I received these instructions

Please run

$ source /opt/anaconda/bin/activate root
$ source /opt/anaconda/bin/deactivate root

As can be seen here
sudo pacman -S anaconda

That’s because in order to use an application, it may first need to be installed. Anaconda wasn’t installed until you installed it.

sudo pacman -S anaconda

Installed the anaconda package since it’s (apparently) already in the Chaotic AUR.

sudo (superuser do) pacman (your package manager) -S packagename

Sometimes you may need to reboot after installing but prior to using.
