Installing a precompiled distribution

Precompiled binary distributions of HMMER are available for at least the following platforms:

To install a precompiled distribution, do the following:

1.
Download the distribution from http://hmmer.wustl.edu/.

2.
Uncompress and un-tar it; for example,
> uncompress hmmer-intel-linux.tar.Z
> tar xf hmmer-intel-linux.tar
A new directory hmmer-xx is created, where ``xx'' is the HMMER version number.
3.
Go to the top level directory and run the configure script.
> cd hmmer-xx
> ./configure
4.
Edit the Makefile in the top level directory.

To run HMMER in the distribution directory, you don't need to edit the Makefile at all. But to permanently install HMMER on your system, set the make variables BINDIR and MANDIR to be the directories where you want HMMER executables and man pages to be installed. If you are installing in directories /usr/local/bin/ and /usr/local/man/man1/, you don't need to change anything.

5.
Type make install to install the programs and man pages. You may have to become root, depending on where you're installing.

6.
Type make clean to clean up.
