Flye assembly of a bacterial genome stuck

Hi all,

I am using Flye to perform a genome assembly of a bacterial genome. I have raw datas obtained from Ox Nanopore sequencing in fastq format. I ran this command line:

flye --nano-raw /home/.../raw_reads/*.fastq --out-dir /home/.../output


Everything seemed to work fine until after the step: Median overlap divergence

This is what I currently have :

It stays stuck at this step for several hours now.

Is there a way to solve this issue?

Thank you so much for your help!

As long as you can see that the program is using CPU cycles (open a new terminal and look at top) you just need to be patient. Assemblies are not a trivial task and can take many hours to complete depending on size of data and hardware resources you are using.
