InstallAnywhere on Linux fails to find shared libraries


Thank you to everyone who wrote letters of support last year for our application to the BBSRC, we should hear the outcome in the next couple of months.

We are now applying to the Wellcome Trust to renew funding to support Jalview's use in biomedical sequence analysis, including interpretation of genomic variation and long read RNA data (e.g. Nanopore) at the protein coding level. If you would like Jalview to continue to develop and be supported 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 22nd March 2019.

Thank you!

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
