we have a new Biolinux system in the lab (Biolinux 8 which is Ubuntu Linux 14.04 LTS base) and I am struggling to install the program Vicuna (http://www.broadinstitute.org/scientific-community/science/projects/viral-genomics/vicuna). I am wondering if anyone could help me to sort it out. I think the major problem is the dependency from ncbi_tools++.
I have followed the installation for external users and downloaded the NCBI toolkit from the ftp://ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/toolbox/ncbi_tools++/CURRENT, then configured it specifying the path, and finally `make` and `make install`.
The problem is that every time I am trying to run ‘make’ after the configuration of the ncbi_tools++ I get various make errors. And if I try to ignore these errors and install vicuna, the program will not run (I just gave it a try anyway).
I have tried to install the program both in bash and zsh environments as well as installing it in different locatoions without much luck.
I know Biolinux have already a version of the ncbi_tools
> ncbi-tools-x11 6.1.20120620 NCBI libraries for biology applications (X-based utilities)
But I am not sure if this is creating conflict with what I am trying to install.
If anyone could help me it would be much appreciated.
Any advice will be welcome
