This linux info snippet worked perfectly to add some extra space to a DomU Xen image. Been struggling with this for too long but this made it painless!
Trying to run KohGPI but needed to find SPRANNLIB which is not available for what I can see – but found GNU-i-fied version in clibs directory of http://sourceforge.net/projects/rlabplus/files/rlab/
This implementation also depends on the GNU Scientific Library (GSL) which you’ll need to build and install beforehand.
Then to build SPRANNLIB download and untar the rlab archive. Go to ‘clibs/sprannlib/src’ and type make. If things are in order it will make a library in ../lib called libsprann.a spr_$ARCH.a where $ARCH is your architecture (x86_64, etc).
The .a files can be deployed in your normal place for manual (non-RPM/DEB) installations (/usr/local/pkg/sprannlib for me with symlinks to the libraries in /usr/local/lib). Then go back and build kohgpi but you may need to update the Makefile so that the library paths point to your sprannlib installation location.
Had a fun day at MakerFaire 2009 – quite overwhelmed by the things to see and do. Picked up a few fun wood art+science piece for my new office. I loved what Xylocopa makes – check them out, one of the pair is a lifesciences graduate student and also an artist drawing some deliciously detailed designs.
I also really want a 3D printer now – just need to figure out how we’ll actually (i.e. in lab) the scanned micrographs turned into 3D models of fungal cells…
What no Eclipse jokes?
