 ===== Installation ====== ===== Installation ======
-Notes from the sysadmin during installation:​+Notes from the sysadmin during installation
 +First, compile the main R application with GCC 7 from Red Hat's ''​devtoolset-7''​ software collection:
 <​code>​$ cd /tmp <​code>​$ cd /tmp
-$ wget https://​​src/​base/​R-3/​R-3.3.3.tar.gz +$ wget https://​​src/​base/​R-3/​R-3.6.1.tar.gz 
-$ tar xf R-3.3.3.tar.gz +$ tar xf R-3.6.1.tar.gz 
-$ cd R-3.3.3 +$ cd R-3.6.
-$ sudo yum install ​gcc-gfortran gcc-c++ ​libX11-devel libXaw-devel bzip2-devel libcurl-devel xz-devel +# install packages to enable capabilities in R 
-$ ./configure --enable-R-shlib --prefix=/​export/​apps/​R/​3.3.3 +$ sudo yum install libX11-devel libXaw-devel bzip2-devel libcurl-devel xz-devel ​readline-devel 
-$ sudo mkdir /​export/​apps/​R/​3.3.3 +# install a newer compiler from Red Hat software collections 
-$ sudo chown aorth /​export/​apps/​R/​3.3.3 +$ sudo yum install devtoolset-7-gcc devtoolset-7-gcc-gfortran devtoolset-7-libquadmath-devel devtoolset-7-gcc-c++ 
-$ make install +$ scl enable devtoolset-7 bash 
-sudo chown -R root:root /​export/​apps/​R/3.3.3</​code>​+# R packages are written in C99 and GCC 7 uses a newer standard by default, so tell configure script to use C99 explicitly 
 +$ export CFLAGS='​-std=gnu99 ​ -g -O2' 
 +$ ./configure --enable-R-shlib --prefix=/​export/​apps/​R/​3.
 +$ make -j4 
 +$ sudo mkdir -p /​export/​apps/​R/​3.6 
 +$ sudo chown aorth:aorth /​export/​apps/​R/​3.6 
 +$ make install</​code>​ 
 +Then install some common libraries used by our users because some of them are quite complicated,​ and installing them globally saves tens of thousands of header files and libraries being installed into user libraries anyways: 
 +<​code>​export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/​export/​apps/​gdal/​2.4.2/​lib 
 +> install.packages("​BiocManager",​ repos="​https://​"​) 
 +> install.packages("​sf",​ repo="​https://​",​ configure.args=c(sf = "​--with-gdal-config=/​export/​apps/​gdal/2.4.2/​bin/​gdal-config"​)) 
 +> install.packages("​poppr",​ repos="​https://​"​) 
 +> install.packages("​vcfR",​ repos="​https://​"​)</​code>​
