Dear list,

now that I got conda working I got a new error when installing tools (bot when installing via the web interface and via the galaxy-tools ansible role). There seems to be an update write on a nonexistent file ...../_condarc

I guess an important point is that I needed to redefine the conda path in galaxy.ini (since I got warnings that the path name was to long). Maybe there are still some hard coded paths around?
