SBGrid software environment


The SBGrid 'Monolithic' software environment provides access to all installed packages using standard shell PATH with minimal required dependencies. Standard system libraries should be sufficient to run all applications. The environment includes added features for users to manage their software version selection.

You can switch between the legacy SBGrid environment and the new capsule environment with the sbcap command. sbcap on will enable the capsule environment. You can always return to the legacy configuration with the sbcap off command.

The sbcap setting is persistent across shells - You don't need to do this for every shell.

Version Overrides can be configured using the sbgrid-overide or by editing .sbgrid.conf. Duplicate executables in path must be handled explicitly by the user. See here.
