conda install ipykernel=4.8.2
Hi, Im getting console error (... raise ValueError('field 6 out of range (need a 48-bit value)'...) while staring Spyder for python 2 on mac high sierra
@compressionist, that bug is in Python itself, not in Spyder. It was fixed in Python 3.6.5 but it was not backported to Python 2.7. So I'm afraid you won't be able to use that version with Spyder
conda install ipykernel=4.8.2as @ccordoba12 asked you to?
ipykernelshouldn't update by itself unless something needs it to update or you run
conda update --all
i do "conda update --all every morning. is there another way ? do them all individually ?
Unless you really know what you're doing, that's what we call A Bad Idea™ since with so many variables and inter-dependencies involved, it only takes two of them having a problem with one another to cause chaos. If you want to be safe, only update all your packages when a new version of the anaconda metapackage is released (
conda update anaconda), aside from updating
spyder, and specific packages if you really need a specific bug fix or feature sooner (like I sometimes do with
pandas or other specific stuff.
anacondais like any other package, but composed of a fixed set of packages
anacondais a metapackage, essentially a package that doesn't do anything by itself but specifies a specific set of dependencies, in this case all the default packages included with the Anaconda distribution and their precise versions, which are tested to work well together.
conda update --allat a reasonable frequency like @ccordoba12 suggested.
