Installing Software on Linux
All servers have the most common software already installed and available. See Software Modules for more information. Users do not have permission to install software on servers, unless it is installed in one's home directory (and does not require administrator privileges). If a software package is not available, users can submit requests to firstname.lastname@example.org for software to be installed.
Package installation for Linux
Software is installed by system admins in the
/sw filesystem. This is a network filesystem filled with software that has been requested by faculty and students. Environment Modules manage software packages, please read the main article on modules for more information.
