This was tested on Fedora 13.
First, download either the regular or development version of AMOS.
i/ The regular AMOS version is available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/amos/files/, e.g.:
ii/ The development version of AMOS is in a Git repository. To get it, run:
git clone git://amos.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/amos/amos
In the directory where the AMOS file are located, run the following to install the prerequisites:
su -c "yum install automake qt3 qt3-devel boost boost-devel libXmu libXmu-devel libXi libXi-devel expat expat-devel"
If you need the AMOScmp, AMOScmp-shortReads-alignmentTrimmed or minimus2 components of AMOS, you need to install MUMMER. As far as I know, there is no easy way to do so. Go to http://mummer.sourceforge.net/ and follow the MUMMER installation instructions.
For the standard version of AMOS, skip to next step, but for the development version, first, run:
Then regardless of the version:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/AMOS make make check su -c "make install" su -c "ln -s /usr/local/AMOS/bin/* /usr/local/bin/"
Now all the programs shipped in AMOS should be available from the command-line. For example try:
