I am running into some issues installing STAR aligner. I attempted to follow others solutions. Ive re-installed gcc thinking this was the issue while compiling but I am still getting an error:
leonfoymcswain@Leons-MBP ~ % cd ~/Desktop/Bio_Packages/STAR/source leonfoymcswain@Leons-MBP source % make STARforMacStatic CXX=/usr/local/Cellar/gcc/8.2.0/bin/g++-8 /usr/local/Cellar/gcc/8.2.0/bin/g++-8 -c -O3 -std=c++11 -fopenmp -D'COMPILATION_TIME_PLACE="Mon Jul 20 22:06:48 EDT 2020 :/Users/leonfoymcswain/Desktop/Bio_Packages/STAR/source"' -D'COMPILE_FOR_MAC' -pipe -Wall -Wextra soloInputFeatureUMI.cpp make: /usr/local/Cellar/gcc/8.2.0/bin/g++-8: No such file or directory make: *** [soloInputFeatureUMI.o] Error 1 leonfoymcswain@Leons-MBP source % STAR zsh: permission denied: STAR leonfoymcswain@Leons-MBP source %
This was the second time I tried this so it doesn't show the entire output from the first attempt (looked like it basically finished compiling and then gave an error). Even if I set the PATH to the STAR unix executable file I still get permission denied. I have also tried sudo chmod to give permissions and again permission denied. Clearly a novice, any help would be great.
