I am trying to install the old samtools 0.1.19 from sourceforge. I can't find any documentation how to install the program. I downloaded it and uncompressed it with tar command, then I went to the folder and read the INTALL file which states the following:
System Requirements =================== SAMtools depends on the zlib library <http://www.zlib.net>. Version 1.2.3+ is preferred and with 1.2.3+ you can compile razip and use it to compress a FASTA file. SAMtools' faidx is able to index a razip-compressed FASTA file to save diskspace. Older zlib also works with SAMtools, but razip cannot be compiled. The text-based viewer (tview) requires the GNU ncurses library <http://www.gnu.org/software/ncurses/>, which comes with Mac OS X and most of the modern Linux/Unix distributions. If you do not have this library installed, you can still compile the rest of SAMtools by manually changing: `-D_CURSES_LIB=1' to `-D_CURSES_LIB=0' at the line starting with `DFLAGS=', and comment out the line starting with `LIBCURSES='. Compilation =========== Type `make' to compile samtools. If you have zlib >= 18.104.22.168, you can compile razip with `make razip'. Installation ============ Copy `samtools', `bcftools/bcftools' and other executables/scripts in `misc' to a location you want (e.g. a directory in your $PATH). You may also copy `samtools.1' and `bcftools/bcftools.1' to a directory in your $MANPATH such that the `man' command may find the manual.
So I run the make command as suggested and tried to run the samtools command but nothing happened and I get the following:
-bash: samtools: command not found
Any suggestion how I can install it properly?
PS. I am not very good with linux jargons. PS: I am required to use this specific version of samtools and not the newer ones.
