Does bcl2fastq work on a mac? bcl2fastq is available as a Linux rpm file bcl2fastq2-v220.127.116.112-Linux-x86_64.rpm. I tried extracting the the rpm contents by first installing rpm2cpio on mac using brew
brew install rpm2cpio
seen here (http://macappstore.org/rpm2cpio/). Then extracted contents using
rpm2cpio.pl bcl2fastq2-v18.104.22.1682-Linux-x86_64.rpm | cpio -idmv
This extracts the contents with the binary located with the following folder path
usr/local/bin/bcl2fastq. I tried executing the bcl2fastq using command
/usr/local/bin/bcl2fastq --runfolder-dir <RunFolder> --output-dir <BaseCalls>
But this did not work. It errors out saying that the binary is not executable. I tried
chmod +x. But not successful.
Anybody successfully able to run this on mac. Or is this a Linux distribution with no hope on a mac. Appreciate any help with this.
