Hi! Have you ever used Centos 7?(or other versions of Centos) I wanted to install bowtie2 on it but it writes an error every time i use "sudo yum install bowtie2" it writes, that it can't find bowtie2, but i've already got tbb-devel.x86_64 please, help, if you have ever worked with Centos, after Ubuntu a server based on centos scares me (cause i have no programmes on it)

Please consider using Conda to do this install (use directions here: Creating workflows with snakemake and conda ) . You can install programs in your own directory without having to use sudo.

Bowtie2 isn't present in any CentOS 7 repo. That's why yum says that it can't be found. Why do you think tbb-devel has anything to do with this? It's only relevant if you want to compile Bowtie2 from source. Just download the latest release from Bowtie2 github and make your $PATH aware of the binaries. Using CentOS isn't that different to using Ubuntu or any other sensible Linux distro..

sorry, but after downloading it still can't work in both of this ways:

sudo yum install bowtie2

sudo yum install bowtie2-2.3.5-linux-x86_64

maybe i can't understand the right way of writing path on centos thank you

It's not available in any CentOS 7 repo, thus you cannot install it with yum. Just follow the instructions at Bowtie2 github. If you don't understand what some term like $PATH means, then spend some time with google..
