This guide is written fun the Sun Tsessbe Cluster, login node. Its recommended that you make you use of temporary or scratch directory to do all the compilation in (i.e. ~/scratch or /tmp/$USER), as to save disk space in your home directory. Note that for this guide, all binary and libraries are installed home directory, i.e prefix=$HOME.
If you dont have GCC installed in your home directory, Add the following lines to the end of your .bashrc file
export PATH=/opt/gridware/gcc-4.3/bin:$PATH export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/gridware/gcc-4.3/lib64/:/opt/gridware/gcc-4.3/lib/:$HOME/lib export F77=gfortran
Logout and log in again,
$ gcc --version gcc (GCC) 4.3.4
$ cd ~/scratch $ wget http://cran.r-project.org/src/base/R-2/R-2.14.0.tar.gz $ tar -xf R-2.14.0.tar.gz $ cd R-2.14.0/
For a bare-bones installation
$ mkdir BUILD $ cd BUILD $ ../configure --prefix=$HOME --without-system-zlib --without-system-xz --without-cairo --without-libpng --without-jpeglib --disable-openmp --disable-largefile --disable-nls
if the process is interrupted, try make again to so if the error persists.
$ make install
restore you .bashrc file
For you jobs to run on the worker nodes, you may need to copy some shared libraries to your lib directory
$ cd $HOME/lib $ cp /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.2 ./
