I'm trying to use an Amazon Web Server linux instance to do some bioinformatics work. I believe I have setup an attached storage area that I'd like to work directly off of, but for some reason it requires I use "sudo" to write anything to the mounted drive. Is there any way to overcome this?
Also, I am trying to run Maq commands, but I get the following error if I type "sudo maq" vs. "maq" at the command line:
sudo: maq: command not found
Program: maq (Mapping and Assembly with Qualities) Version: 0.7.1 Contact: Heng Li email@example.com
Usage: maq <command/> [options]
Key commands: fasta2bfa convert FASTA to BFA format fastq2bfq convert FASTQ to BFQ format
The later indicates to me that maq is properly installed...so why can't I just prepend the commands with sudo to get my script to work?
Thanks for any help you all can provide.
