In the first instance please contact your local helpdesk. Some software, typically compilers, MPI libraries, maths libraries and popular software applications are installed centrally and are listable by using
Key software applications will be built against the most recent compilers and MPI libraries. Some institutions may have experts in specific software and will take the lead in installing these applications. Some institutions will also install some software specifically for their users (e.g. due to licences). Both these sets of software will be installed in an institutional module. By loading
for example, the software application modules for York will be loaded. Therefore some software applications will not reside in a central location. We provide an extension
module find name
to search all the modulefiles for the application name. Alternatively, users can search the "A-Z Listings". Users may also install software in their own user filestore and use UNIX permissions to share with their research group.
Please see our Software A-Z for a list of available Software and Compilers.
Software installation on N8 HPC is devolved to its members. Each local institution can give its local experts sufficient privileges to install software themselves, as well as install it themselves. This page outlines how this happens. Note that the process is essentially the same for local N8 HPC technical support as it is for their local experts.
There is a page on the website "A-Z listing" that follows the standard template. Each N8 HPC member institution is responsible for writing and maintaining the pages for the software that it installs.
