Step by step instruction on how to compile Yade into HPC cluster running RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux)

Asked by Nicholas Ng on 2019-04-29

Hi all,

I'm a Yade user and I would like to run my Yade simulation in HPC cluster which run on RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux). From my understanding, I need to find ways to compile Yade into Red Hat system first, but I'm not sure how should I do it.

I have read the following links:

https://yade-dev.gitlab.io/trunk/installation.html?highlight=compilation

However, I'm still a bit blur on how should I start with this compilation of Yade.

Therefore, I would like to ask for some help about step by step instruction regarding compilation of Yade. Is there any useful link which I can refer to?

Personally I am not an IT expert, so most likely I need to pass the information to the administrator for HPC cluster .

I would really appreciate if anyone can share with me on the step by step instruction for compilation of Yade.

Thanks in advance !!!

Regards,
Nicholas Ng

The concise answer is exactly what [1] did. The install page shows the necessary third party libraries that need to be installed for Yade [2], but the method of installation will be different for RedHat. I believe RedHat uses Yum instead of apt, so you need to track down the comparable libraries in that package manager. I guess it is possible you won't find certain libraries, in which case you need to compile those libraries separately from source. I do not know if that will be the case.
