These are our notes for installing Phenix

You want to download the latest nightly version here:

You need to have a name and password emailed to you before you can download the tar file. To request password go to: Once the tar file is downloaded:

scp it to fawlty:/nfs/software/phenix/

Extract the tarball and then cd into the install directory. Then run the install like this:

sudo ./install --prefix=/nfs/software/phenix/
