Installing a Coot pre-compiled binary using Fink


Automatic Install

If you want to simply install coot automatically from my server, read Getting your fink installation to use packages that I have pre-compiled. Then all you have to do is to type the commands

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
fink -b install coot

This will install coot and its dependencies and the dependencies for its dependencies and so on. Starting from scratch, apt-get installed these packages.

Once you have it set up, it works the same way for coot, cns, ccp4, and all the other fink packages I pre-compiled. To subsequently update everything at once, just issue

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Note about ssm

Note: If you find that you have a problem with ssm (the superpositioning functionality in coot), try this:

fink rebuild ssm
fink reinstall ssm

Note to G4 PPC users

The package gmp that is built on my G5 PPC is incompatible with G4 processors. You will have to force-rebuild it manually:

fink rebuild gmp
fink reinstall gmp gmp-shlibs

This bug causes coot to fail when running the "tips-gui.scm" file on my G4 ppc.
