Red Hat Linux Python install

Red Hat is a common Linux distro used for HPC and other high reliability computing environments. Miniconda Python works well on Red Hat and many other Linux distros as well as MacOS and Windows. Thanks to .whl binary wheel packaging, many packages such as Numpy can be quickly installed via pip without compilation whether using system Python or Miniconda.

Miniconda Python install does not require “sudo”. Using EPEL or IUS, requires “sudo”. One may also load Python 3 with modules, commonly used on HPC.
