Frequently asked questions¶
- I have no permission to install software on a server I want to use datalad on. Can I make it work nevertheless?
pipsupports installation into a user’s home directory with
--user. Git-annex, on the other hand, can be deployed by extracting pre-built binaries from a tarball (that also includes an up-to-date Git installation). Obtain the tarball, extract it, and set the
PATHenvironment variable to include the root of the extracted tarball. Fingers crossed and good luck!
