AlignTK -- INSTALLATION

AlignTK currently only runs only on Linux platforms.  If you would like to see a Windows-compatible release, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. us to let us know of your interest in this.

In order to compile AlignTK, you will need to install the following packages (exact names may vary depending on particular Linux release):

  • fftw3-devel
  • libjpg-devel
  • libtiff-devel
  • libopenmpi-dev
  • zlib-devel

Additionally, for the GUI-based programs, you will need X windows and:

  • fltk1.1-devel

Once you have the prerequisites, the following installation commands should not produce errors:

  1. Download aligntk-1.0.tar.gz.
  2. $ tar zxf aligntk-1.0.tar.gz
  3. $ cd aligntk-1.0
  4. $ ./configure
  5. $ make
  6. [optional] $ make check
  7. $ sudo make install

This will install the tools into /usr/local/bin; to select a different target directory, use "./configure --prefix=/your_directory" and the binaries will be copied to /your_directory/bin.

If you don't wish to build the GUI tools (e.g., on the backend nodes of a cluster), then use "./configure --without-x".

You may specify a different MPI compiler by appending a "MPICC=your_mpi_compiler_name" to the end of the configure options.  Similarly, the C and C++ compilers may be explicitly set with "CC=your_C_compiler_name" and "CXX=your_C++_compiler_name"  options to configure.  Compiler options may be also be set as configure options; for example, CFLAGS="-O3" or CXXFLAGS="-g".
