Dear all,

I try to reconstruct haplotype by fastphase in my data, i download it from for ubuntu 12.10. but I think it has problem, because when I want to unzip by command as gunzip and tar -zxvf its didn't recognize a tar format. is there any body that try for downloading fastphase and use it on ubuntu for test it. I used it at 6 month ago but now it dose not work. I am tired to try several time for download and extract it , but it didn't work. the phase do haplotype reconstruction can i used phase instead of fastphase?

Please edit the title to something useful, like "Problem installing fastPhase". Also, the link u've mentioned, a login is required.

What is the extension of the file you downloaded? For example: .gz, .tar.gz, .zip

It should be recognizable by tar, if its a tarball. Did you check the manual,

2.1 Installation

Presumably, you have downloaded a fastphase.VERSION.linux.tar.gz file. (Alternatively, you downloaded an executable file for Solaris, Darwin 1 , or for Microsoft Windows 2 .) Then do the following:

gunzip fastphase.VERSION.linux.tar.gz
tar -xvf fastphase.VERSION.linux.tar

This will produce a folder similar in name to fastphase.VERSION.linux. Contained in this new directory are the following:

• fastPHASE

• fastphase.inp an example input file

• fastphase haplotypes.inp an example input file of known haplotypes

• fastphase subpoplabels.inp file of “subpopulation” labels for individuals in fastphase.inp

• fastphase subpoplabels2.inp contains enough labels to run with -b -ufastphase subpoplabels2.inp flags.

To do a short run and test that the program is working on your system:

./fastPHASE -T1

I cannot help more, because I am not able to download the software without a licence.

1) please add it as an comment.

2) you again sent the same url' which requires id and password.

3) I cannot help without looking at the file.

4) It doesn't makes sense to me, why source code labelled as fastPHASELinux32bit.gz, will give you an .exe file , which is a windows based installer. You can try, wine fastPHASE.exe and see what happens..
