How To Install bumps2 on Fedora 34

In this tutorial, we will discuss How To Install bumps2 on Fedora 34 using dnf and yum package managers. Also, we will demonstrate how to uninstall and update bumps2 as well.

One-liner Install Command

If you are only interested in the installation command, here is a quick answer for you:

sudo yum makecache && sudo yum -y install python-bumps
or if you use dnf:
sudo dnf makecache && sudo dnf -y install python-bumps

But if you are interested in the details with step-by-step instructions, the following information will be helpful.

What is bumps2 and How to Install It?

First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running Fedora 34. This guide was written specifically with a server running Fedora 34 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.

Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.

There are several ways to install bumps2 on Fedora 34. You can use (links are clickable):

In the following sections, we will describe each method in detail. You can choose one of them or refer to the recommended one.

Install bumps2 on Fedora 34 using dnf

First, update dnf packages database with dnf by running the next command:

sudo dnf makecache --refresh

After updating database, You can install bumps2 using dnf by running the following command:

sudo dnf -y install python-bumps

Install bumps2 on Fedora 34 using yum

Because bumps2 is available in Fedora 34’s default repositories, it is possible to install it from these repositories using the yum packaging system.

To begin, update local packages database with yum using the following command.

sudo yum makecache --refresh

Now can install bumps2 package on your server/computer by running the following command:

sudo yum -y install python-bumps

How to upgrade (update) a single package bumps2 using yum?

To update all the packages available on the system:

yum update

If you want to update a specific package like bumps2 in this example you should use the following command:

yum update python-bumps

To downgrade a package to an earlier version:

yum downgrade python-bumps

How to Upgrade bumps2 on Fedora 34 with dnf?

When you run the dnf update, all system packages with available updates are updated. However, if you want to upgrade a single package, then you would have to pass the package name as the argument to the dnf update command.

dnf update python-bumps

How To remove bumps2 from Fedora 34

To uninstall only the bumps2 package you can execute the following command:

sudo dnf remove python-bumps

Extra info and code examples

Bumps is a set of routines for curve fitting and uncertainty analysis from a Bayesian perspective. In addition to traditional optimizers which search for the best minimum they can find in the search space, bumps provides uncertainty analysis which explores all viable minima and finds confidence intervals on the parameters based on uncertainty in the measured values. Bumps has been used for systems of up to 100 parameters with tight constraints on the parameters. Full uncertainty analysis requires hundreds of thousands of function evaluations, which is only feasible for cheap functions, systems with many processors, or lots of patience. Bumps includes several traditional local optimizers such as Nelder-Mead simplex, BFGS and differential evolution. Bumps uncertainty analysis uses Markov chain Monte Carlo to explore the parameter space. Although it was created for curve fitting problems, Bumps can explore any probability density function, such as those defined by PyMC. In particular, the bumps uncertainty analysis works well with correlated parameters. Bumps can be used as a library within your own applications, or as a framework for fitting, complete with a graphical user interface to manage your models. This package installs the library for Python 2.


You now have a full guide on how to install bumps2 using dnf and yum package managers. Also, we showed how to update manually as a single package and different ways to uninstall the bumps2 from Fedora 34.
