SBGrid Software Installation : Laptops and Desktops without shared network storage

If you would like to install SBGrid tools on a machine that is frequently disconnected from the network, like a laptop, or don't want to set up an NFS-shared software installation, it is possible to install the software to the hard disk on your local machine.

We have a GUI-based installation client for MacOS that allows software to be selected, installed, and updated on demand from SBGrid servers. There is also a command-line client for MacOS and Linux that will allow installation and upgrade of individual titles from the command line.

Our sbgrid-laptop installation shell-script is no longer supported.
