The SBGrid Installation is the primary
SBGrid can be installed on computers running Linux or macOS operating systems.
CentOS/RHEL 7 or 8 is recommended for linux, or MacOSX v10.13 - macOS 12 for
Macs. On macOS 10.15+ an
/etc/synthetic.conf file is
required to create the root level
/programs symlink on the read-only
filesystem. The GUI Installation Manager will create this automatically. See
here for more info.
Under linux, the GUI Installation Manager may require installation of some additional packages (if these have not already been installed by the desktop environment); under Alma 9 these are :
fuse-libs fuse nss atk-devel at-spi2-atk gtk3 mesa-libgbm nss-util.
The SBGrid installation manager requires an account. Set up an account by registering here : SBGrid registration
