InstallAnywhere on Linux fails to find shared libraries


Jalview is free to end-users because of support from the UK's BBSRC and The Wellcome Trust

If you would like to see Jalview continue to be available then please take a few minutes to write us a support letter saying how you use Jalview in your research/teaching.

Write as a PDF including your institution's heading and send to:
support_jalview@bartongroup.org by Friday 19th October 2018.

Thank you all those who have already written such nice letters!

Some latest versions of Linux fail to install with InstallAnywhere and will generate error messages such as "error while loading shared libraries: libm.so.6: cannot open". The problem can be fixed by modifying the install.bin script, and also the Jalview script.

cp install.bin install.bak
cat install.bak | sed "s/export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/#xport LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/" > install.bin
sh install.bin

cp Jalview Jalview.bak
cat Jalview.bak | sed "s/export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/#xport LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/" > Jalview
sh Jalview
