this was MAUS 2.8.3 taken from a tarball from the regular downloads area

Hi Misha,

OK, I would expect that given the steps you describe. This issue arises as the development branch (merge) which you are using for the third party libraries has been updated since the last release (MAUS-v2.8.3), in particular the way numpy is installed has changed, consequently attempting to link the release against the merge will fail.

Another point is that as you are going to be a MAUS developer, rather than just a user, you will be better using the development branch to work with, rather than the release tarball. Instructions on obtaining the merge branch can found at:

Do take a look. Briefly:

Open a terminal and navigate to the directory on PPD you want to install MAUS in, I recommend:



mkdir maus
bzr init-repo maus
cd maus
bzr branch lp:maus/merge
cd merge
./install_build_test.bash -t /opt/ppd/mice/software/maus/third-party-libs -j 4

Let me know how that goes.

I left a pure MAUS-v2.8.3 release branch building on the PPD cluster last night, and it has now completed without any problems. It can be found at:
