I wish to create new environment for a new project so that I can install various packages in it. And those packages will not then affect my base environment. My base is at 3.6.6 I want my new environment should also be of same python version. But could not do it.
Here is what I did:
conda create -n mynewenv # you must specify python version... why? conda create -n mynewenv python=3.6.6 # so as to make it exact of 'base'. No, you can not specify 3.6.6 but only upto 3.6 conda create -n mynewenv python=3.6 # in the list to install it showed 3.6.8...why? I want only 3.6.6 conda create -n mynewenv python # somewhere I read that just by giving 'python' picks up the 'base' version. But no...it picked 3.7...why?
Please suggest correct way
