This manual describes how to install BUSTER-TNT or SHARP/autoSHARP, software systems for crystallographic structure determination and refinement by Bayesian statistical methods. The submission of BUSTER-TNT or SHARP/autoSHARP jobs in a multi-machines environment with a queueing system is also described. Since BUSTER-TNT and SHARP/autoSHARP share most of the underlying infrastructure, the two names are used synonymously throughout this document. If there are differences between the two, it will be mentioned explicitly.
The installation manual is available online for BUSTER-TNT and SHARP/autoSHARP. A very short installation description is given below.
This document does not deal with the input preparation or the output of the BUSTER-TNT and SHARP/autoSHARP programs themselves. For more information about these please refer to the on-line documentation.
The manual consists of six chapters:
There is also a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) available. Although it is rather directed towards problems that a user of the programs might encounter, it also offers some hints about administration. Furthermore, you can have a look at the online FAQs hosted on the SHARP/autoSHARP home page.
The BUSTER/SHARP administrator needs to take the following steps to install and configure SHARP/autoSHARP and/or BUSTER-TNT:
Note : if running jobs through the GUI, all output files will belong to this UNIX account (i.e. UNIX ownership of all files produced during a job).
During sections 1 to 5 of this script, it will install the various parts of the software. In section 6, it will configure the installation. Make sure it runs successfully till the end.
If you've run the script with the -F flag, you should be finished now - unless you want to use more than just the current machine.
If you run it without any flag, the SERVER (i.e. the GUI-driving http daemon) is configured, but the actual SHARP/autoSHARP or BUSTER/TNT programs cannot run yet.
Make sure to set some environmental variables: example scripts (which should be correct) are provided as setup.sh and setup.csh in the current $BDG_home directory after running the installation script. You can set up your environment using
# . ./setup.sh # for sh/bash/ksh - or - % source ./setup.csh # for csh/tcsh
Each SHARP/autoSHARP user runs from their account a final configuration script ($BDG_home/bin/useSHARP), which completes the configuration. The corresponding step for BUSTER-TNT is done differently and takes place during the initial connection to the BUSTER server.
