Python 3.6 - Environment creation failed

sbackmann Registered Posts: 2 ✭✭✭

I am trying to add Python 3.6 as a new code environment. Python 3.7 and 2.7 worked without problems. But for 3.6, I get the following error message:

Environment creation failed
/Users/%%%%%/Library/DataScienceStudio/dss_home/bin/python failed (exit code: 1)

Traceback (most recent call last):

I am running MacOS with Monterey 12.1, DSS 10.0.2 and have Python 3.6.15 installed. The respective paths are added to PATH and where python3.6 points to the right path. Any ideas what's wrong?

Operating system used: macOS Monterey 12.1

    Hi @sbackmann

    Are you using the same shell as DSS? For example, you might have python3.6 available from the PATH in zsh, while DSS is using regular bash and the PATH can be different.

    You can run this in the python notebook within DSS UI to verify that:

    !ps -p $$
