  • Hi all,

    Hope you guys can help... I am installing Staden onto my mac, and it is almost up and running! However I have a problems with the gphrap. I have phred/phrap/consed/polyphred/cross-match installed and runninf under X11. I have downloaded the Extras_phrap. tar file and followed the instructions but when I type
    make gcphrap I get the following error...

    gcc -O2 -c -o gcphrap.o  phrap.c -DGCPHRAP
    /var/tmp//ccc8bgd6.s:unknown:FATAL:can't create output file: gcphrap.o
    make: *** [gcphrap.o] Error 1

    Any suggestions? I guess I can still use Staden with  using Cap2/Cap3 instead but I 'd like to keep using Phrap.

    Thanks in advance...

      All this is telling me is that for some reason you cannot compile C code. It could a multitude of reasons - eg broken gcc installation, read-only filesystem, insufficient priviledges to write to the current directory, etc.
