A new supercomputer ITO at Kyushu University can be used as a trial and I will set up its subsystem B.

Install Anaconda

To avoid conflict with the pre-installed Python system, pyenv is installed and used to create a virtual environment.

Install pyenv

Pyenv can be easily installed as follows:

$ cd ~
$ git clone git://github.com/yyuu/pyenv.git .pyenv

Edit ~/.bashrc

Add the following in .bashrc:

export PYENV_ROOT="${HOME}/.pyenv"
if [ -d "${PYENV_ROOT}" ]; then
    export PATH=${PYENV_ROOT}/bin:$PATH
    eval "$(pyenv init -)"

You can take a look at available software and its versions:

$ pyenv install -l

Install Anaconda

The newest version of Anaconda3 should be installed:

$ pyenv install anaconda3-5.0.1

check available versions

You can check the available versions and find that “system” is the current environment because * is appended.

$ pyenv versions
* system (set by /home/usr1/account/.pyenv/version)

You can switch to anaconda3-5.0.1 as follows:

$ pyenv global anaconda3-5.0.1

Now you can confirm anaconda3-5.0.1 is the current environment as * is appended:

$ pyenv versions
* anaconda3-5.0.1 (set by /home/usr1/m70161a/.pyenv/version)

Invoke python

Now you can invoke python 3.6.3 by Anaconda as follows:

$ python
Python 3.6.3 |Anaconda, Inc.| (default, Oct 13 2017, 12:02:49)
[GCC 7.2.0] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

You can exit by typing quit().
You can use IPython but you may not be able to use Jupyter Notebook even if you have an X client like XcXsrv. I also do not know how to invoke Firefox.
