Compiling CASTEP in Linux?

  1. Jul 28, 2007 #1
    I've been using CASTEP via materials studio but want to use it directly in linux. How do you go about compiling it ? I've got the disc darsbury sent me but teh readme file is inpenetrable. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I believe pre-compiled executables should be included, but if not or you want to compile it "cd" to the top directory and typing "make" should give you the scripts for different platforms (GNU-like install). It has a number of dependencies but the install script will complain if you don't have them installed and point you to the source of the problem. You can probably find the install-readme file somewhere in the Castep site.
