  • BWA and Samtools installation failing

    Hi.

    First post, so please be gentle

    First, I would like to say that I am not very familiar with Linux/Unix so I need advice to be addressed in a manner so that I can understand. I hope this is not stopping you from giving me some advice.

    System, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit, Intel core i7-2640M CPU, 8 GB memory.

    I would like to set up a few tools in order to perform ananlysis of my RNA-sequencing (Illumina HiSeq). So far I have figured out that I would like to try the combination of the following software:

    - BWA
    - Cufflinks
    - Samtools
    - Bowtie
    - TopHat

    Cufflinks and tophat is working (at least if I type cufflinks --help or tophat --help).

    Now, I am having trouble with Samtools and BWA, and it appears that I am not able to install them (by using the make command).

    I am getting the following error:

    JamesT-XPS-L412Z:~/Samtools/samtools-0.1.18$ make
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/jim/Samtools/samtools-0.1.18'
    make[2]: Entering directory `/home/jim/Samtools/samtools-0.1.18'

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jim/Samtools/samtools-0.1.18'

    JamesT-XPS-L412Z:~/bwa/bwa-0.6.2$ make
    gcc -c -g -Wall -O2 -DHAVE_PTHREAD bwa.c -o bwa.o
    In file included from bwa.c:8:0:
    bntseq.h:32:18: fatal error: zlib.h: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.
    make: *** [bwa.o] Error 1

    From searching the web for a few days I think the problem is with the library, however, my Ubuntu tells me that the zlib1g-dev is installed. Is there any other library I need? Do I need to make changes to the make file? Or is the problem elsewhere.

    I did the following:

    JamesT-XPS-L412Z:~$sudo apt-get update
    JamesT-XPS-L412Z:~$sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev libncurses5-dev
    JamesT-XPS-L412Z:~/Samtools/samtools-0.1.18$ make
    JamesT-XPS-L412Z:~/bwa/bwa-0.6.2$ make

    Both commands finished without errors, so I assume things are ok.

      Don't worry... I'm sure most of us without a backgroud in linux have been stumped by the zlib/ncurses thing at some point or the other

        Well, at least I managed to make it work Thanks for the positive remark, it is helpful when you are entering a new field (NGS and Linux).
