I'd rather do the hands-ons on my own laptop instead of in an
Athena cluster. Can you tell me how to install the packages for
my particular set-up?
We can't support individual student set-ups because they vary
so widely. But, there is a solution! To complete the hands-ons,
you don't have to be physically present in an Athena cluster: you
can access it remotely via
In a terminal, type: ssh
(replace <athena_id> with whatever your Athena ID
is). It will ask for your Athena password, and once you've
entered that, you're now using an Athena machine.
I keep getting file-not-found errors.
We believe these have been fixed, but if not, please give us
information on the exact file that can't be found (this issue is
very hard to debug otherwise).
Incidentally, this may be a better question to ask
non-anonymously, in case the error has to do with site permissions.
