Fedora installation

Jump to: navigation, search

This was tested on Fedora 13.

First, download either the regular or development version of AMOS.

i/ The regular AMOS version is available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/amos/files/, e.g.:

wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/amos/files/amos/2.0.8/amos-2.0.8.tar.gz/download

ii/ The development version of AMOS is in a Git repository. To get it, run:

git clone git://amos.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/amos/amos

In the directory where the AMOS file are located, run the following to install the prerequisites:

su -c "yum install automake qt3 qt3-devel boost boost-devel  libXmu libXmu-devel libXi libXi-devel expat expat-devel"

If you need the AMOScmp, AMOScmp-shortReads-alignmentTrimmed or minimus2 components of AMOS, you need to install MUMMER. As far as I know, there is no easy way to do so. Go to http://mummer.sourceforge.net/ and follow the MUMMER installation instructions.

For the standard version of AMOS, skip to next step, but for the development version, first, run:


Then regardless of the version:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/AMOS
make check
su -c "make install"
su -c "ln -s /usr/local/AMOS/bin/* /usr/local/bin/"

Now all the programs shipped in AMOS should be available from the command-line. For example try:

Minimo -h
