Linux packages for UCSC genome source tools

Some time ago I’ve created packages for the UCSC genome source tools for 64Bit Intel/AMD processors.

A .rpm version can be downloaded here; a .deb version can be downloaded here.

On Fedora/RedHat/CentOs, install the rpm with:

sudo yum install ucsc-genome-tools-225-2.x86_64.rpm --nogpgcheck

On Debian/Ubuntu, install the .deb file with:

dpkg -i ucsc-genome-tools_225-1_amd64.deb

Tell me in the comments if there are any problems, I’ve tested them only on Debian and CentOS.

    Hi maxhaussler!
    Thanks for sharing all these tools… they’ll save me a lot of time!
    But, some scripts give this error:

    error while loading shared libraries: libmysqlclient.so.15: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    can you tell me what should I do?
    Thanks

  2. Hi Geparada,

    hm, this is because your linux distribution is different from mine. In this case, I cannot help at the moment. I really want to create source packages for the tools, but currently don’t have the time for this. Once a source package has created, it will tailor the tools to your distribution. You can email Adam Huffman (adam.huffman – at -manchester.ac.uk), he has rpm-source-packages, which you might convert with a tool called “alien” into the debian format. Sorry for this, someone of the debian-med team should take up the task of packaging this stuff properly, but I don’t have the time at the moment…

    cheers

    Hi Max

    Thanks for your answer. I already solved the problem installing libmysqlclient15, where there are the missing files. The tools works nice and I used these a lot! (mainly pslToBed script).

    Thanks again,
    cheers
