I am VERY new to all of this, so if this isn’t the right place to post a question of this nature, feel free to point me in the right direction. I have installed the full version of Anaconda versus just the miniconda version. I have taken a copy of the code from GitHub and unzipped it into a folder at N:\Python\ML4T.
I first tried this command:
conda env create -f installation/ml4t-base.yml
but it returned:
Collecting package metadata (repodata.json): done
Solving environment: failed
The environment was not created, so then I tried:
conda create -n ml4t python=3.8
mamba env update -n ml4t -f installartion/ml4t-base.yml
That finished with:
Encountered problems while solving.
Problem: nothing provides requested backtrader
The good news is that the environment was created fine. I have spent some time earlier fiddling with backtrader and I was starting to see some people question whether it was currently being supported.
I guess my question at this point is: Do I have enough to continue looking at exercises in the book that involve areas not related to backtrader? Or, is there a way to fix things so that backtrader is no longer a problem?
