Don't worry, simply follow the below bellow instruction which should fix most issues.

  1. If you got numpy.distutils.system_info.NotFoundError: No lapack/blas resources found. Note: Accelerate is no longer supported. error when installing on macOS and you are using Python 3.9 please, downgrade to older versions for now. We are working on this and Python 3.9 will be supported soon.

  2. Python 64 bit version is required.

  3. If you are using macOS and got error about system dependencies, try installing MindsDB with Anaconda and run the installation from the anaconda prompt.

  4. If none of this works, try installing mindsdb using the docker container and create an issue with the installation errors you got on our Github repository and we'll try to review it within a few hours.
