Installing 64-bit Anaconda

Thu Jan 23, 2020 6:00 pm

I am having trouble installing a 64-bit Anaconda version on my Raspberry Pi.

The Raspberry Pi version is Raspberry Pi 4 1.5GHz Quad-Core 64-bit ARM CPU.

I installed the 64-bit Ubuntu for raspberry pi 4 onto a 64 GB micro SD card, however when I attempt to execute Anaconda3-2019.10-Linux-x86_64.sh I get an error stating: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

uname -a shows:
ubuntu 5.3.0-1014-raspi2 #16-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 26 11:18:23 UTC 2019 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

I think whats going on is one of two things
1. Anaconda3-2019.10-Linux-x86_64.sh isn't compatible with aarch64
2. I am still operating in 32-bit mode despite trying to get to 64-bit mode

Any help would be appreciated

You're trying to install a version that's meant for Intel / AMD compatible processors. The Pi uses an ARM processor.

You need an ARM64 compatible version, although I think the 32-bit version should also work
