Install conda

If conda is not already installed:

# answer y/yes to all prompts
# exit ssh session, then start a new ssh session

GroqFlow conda environment setup

Create and activate a groqflow conda environment

Create a groqflow conda environment and activate it

export PYTHON_VERSION=3.10.12
conda create -n groqflow python=$PYTHON_VERSION
conda activate groqflow

Install groqflow into the groqflow conda environment

Execute the following commands to install groqflow into the activated groqflow conda environment

# Alter this if you have cloned groqflow to some other location.
cd ~/groqflow
pip install --upgrade pip
pip install -e .
pushd . 
cd demo_helpers
pip install -e .
pip install soundfile

To use groqfloq,

conda activate groqflow
Note: Always use a personal conda environment when installing packages on groq nodes; otherwise they can get installed into ~/.local and can cause problems when your shared home directory is used on other systems. If you encounter mysterious package dependency/version issues, check your ~/.local/lib and ~/.local/bin for mistakenly installed packages.

Note: The conda enviroment should be reinstalled whenever new groqflow code is pulled from the groqflow github; with a groqflow conda environment activated, redo just the pip install steps.
