I would like to use Eigenstrat on my computer (downloaded from https://github.com/DReichLab/EIG). I have a Mac and have downloaded Virtual Box and installed Ubuntu.
The first thing I would like to do is convert my files from PLINK format to a format compatible with Eigenstrat. First, I wanted to check to see if your convertf program is working by going to the /bin directory and typing in ./convertf. I received the following error message:
"error while loading shared libraries: libgsl.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
I returned to the README file in the Eigensoft package and noticed that it requires that the system has GSL + lapack + OpenBLAS packages installed (which mine does not) and recommends re-making the package. I have tried installing these packages, but I have not been successful in doing so.
I am very new to both Ubuntu and Eigenstrat, so I don't have the know-how to compile the package easily (it will be a very lengthy process of google searches and trial and error). Does a pre-compiled version of this exist that can be downloaded and function properly with little to no modification? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
