Talk:GBrowse Ubuntu HOWTO
I don't want to add this to the official doc, but I think somebody who understands the pre-req's better could cull my list of packages down to the correct set.
From the instructions on the page, I didn't have success. I went on to use this set of packages (from http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Installing_BioPerl_on_Ubuntu_Server):
lynx unzip zip ncftp gcc libc6-dev make mysql-server apache2 perl libgd-gd2-perl libcgi-session-perl libclass-base-perl
and threw this package in for good measure:
...and it worked!
I'm tempted to add everything here (other than lynx) to the package list on the page, but I suspect it might include more packages than are really necessary.
When I installed GBrowse using the script gbrowse_netinstall.pl, I got the error message as follows;
Force getting a BioPerl nightly build; the most recent release is too old
*** Installing BioPerl *** Downloading bioperl-live... Failed to get nightly bioperl-live file:
The reason of the error is the typo in a line of the gbrowse_netinstall.pl script
my $url = BIOPERL_LIVE_URL."/$filename";
must be changed to
my $url = BIOPERL_LIVE_URL."$filename";
Then, the script can download the nightly bioperl-live file correctly and install it.
