I have just moved to a new lab and have to deal with installing all necessary packages for bioinformatics in a linux system again.
As I have experienced in the previous lab, compiling packages is a pain as error always appear and prerequisites seem endless.
1) I do not have root permission
2) I cannot use
yum or even
git etc. (as either I do not have root permission or they were not installed)
I want to learn how to compile everything with ease in a linux system.
May I have not only the 'how-tos' but also some rule of thumbs to follow, starting from scratch?
The linux system in the new lab is a CentOS7 (centos-release-7-5.1804.4.el7.centos.x86_64)
Thanks a lot!
