Installation troubles

Hi,

I am posting this because I didn't find any solution to my problem.

I am now working under Ubuntu 18.04 and I want to try out intelpython3 in parallel to the standard Python distribution to compare the performances (mainly for the MKL libraries). I followed all the installation instructions and then ran

cd /opt/intel/intelpython3
source bin/activate root

I was just returned 

(root)

And nothing else happens.

Did I miss something? 

Also, when I now run 

sudo apt-get update

I get 

Distribution en conflit : https://apt.repos.intel.com/intelpython binary/ InRelease (binary/ attendu, mais  obtenu)

Which is basically "distribution conflict, binary/ expected but received". I don't know if this has anything to do with the previous problem.

 

Thanks in advance,

I think your installation is working fine. Just type python3 or python in the shell command line and press enter. It will show the information about the current python environment(version, and vendor information)

Maxime,

After you activate a virtual environment, you will see the virtual environment named enclosed within parenthesis in the OS propmpt (root) in your case.
