1. Install environment

1) Get depad-utils and configure environment

Login to your cluster and navigate to your home folder:

cd ${HOME}

Download and unzip these files (There are hidden files/directories).

Note: Make sure that the etc/skel/.bashrc from the zip file was already deployed as root and that /etc/skel/.bashrc was copied to your home dir when it was created (cp /etc/skel/.bashrc ~). If your .bashrc does not have the contents from the template, you can add it manually and notify an admin to deploy the template in /etc/skel/.

Create a folder where the modules will be installed:

mkdir /apps/modules/

### Copy all files in the folder /apps/modules/ from the zip to the server (if /apps/modules is not possible, NB copying these files should go somewhere else)

cp -r depad-utils/apps/modules/* depad-utils/.lmod/ /apps/modules/

NB: Lmod must already have been deployed as root using your Linux distro's package manager. NB2: In case /apps/modules is not possible, then ~/.bashrc should also be changed.

If lmod is not installed, please do the following (admins-only), in our case for CentOS use:

$root>: yum install lmod

To verify that /apps/modules/modules.bashrc gets sourced: logout + login. When ${HPC_ENV_PREFIX} is set, you are good to continue to the next step.


2) Create main folders for our HPC environment.

mkdir -m 2775 ${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/data/
mkdir -m 2775 ${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/software/
mkdir -m 2775 ${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/sources/
mkdir -m 2770 ${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/.tmp/

3) Download EasyBuild bootstrap script

mkdir -p /${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/sources/EasyBuild/
cd /${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/sources/EasyBuild
curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hpcugent/easybuild-framework/develop/easybuild/scripts/bootstrap_eb.py
mv bootstrap_eb.py bootstrap_eb_${EASYBUILD_VERSION}.py

4) Bootstrap EasyBuild in apps dir.

python /${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/sources/EasyBuild/bootstrap_eb_${EASYBUILD_VERSION}.py ${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}

5) Sanity check

Logout and login again.

module load EasyBuild
module list
eb --version

6) Install toolchain

eb foss-2015b.eb -–robot

Note: Some sources should be downloaded manually (see below).

scp gcc-4.9.3.tar.bz2 /${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/sources/g/GCC/
scp gmp-6.0.0a.tar.bz2 /${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/sources/g/GCC/
scp mpc-1.0.2.tar.gz /${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/sources/g/GCC/
scp mpfr-3.1.2.tar.gz /${HPC_ENV_PREFIX}/sources/g/GCC/

7) Installing additional packages

The following packages should be on the cluster/VM (this can only be done with root access):

yum install libibverbs-devel
yum install openssl-devel
yum install unzip
yum install libX11-devel
yum install libXrender-devel
yum install libXext-devel
yum install mesa-libGL-devel
yum install mesa-libGLU-devel

8a) Get molgenis-easybuild repo

Now that EasyBuild is installed, we need to get the molgenis easybuild configs. This is because it contains a lot of custom easyconfigs that are not in the original easybuild repo from Ghent University: https://github.com/molgenis/easybuild-easyconfigs.

There are 2 options:

8b) Put the new repo on the cluster/VM

scp -r easybuild-easyconfigs [email protected]:${root}/${pathToMYeasybuildconfigs}
