Updates

by Sargis Dallakyan last modified 2009-07-28 12:52
We provide two kinds of updates:
  • Tested - passed around 4000 tests.
  • Latest - may or may not have passed the tests.

Updates can be installed either by using Update Manager or by performing the following steps:

Step 0: Download and install latest release (if you don't have one already installed).

Step 1: Download one of the file corresponding to your system from Tested or Latest.

Step 2: Create a new directory (e.g. mkdir mgl_nighlty).

Step 3: Extract downloaded file to mgl_nightly.

Step 4: Change into newly created directory (cd mgl_nightly) and run adt, pmv or vision from there.

Alternatively, if you prefer starting ADT, PMV or Vision by clicking on the corresponding icons or don't want to change directories every time, edit runAdt.py, runPmv.py or runVision.py and add the following code at line #4.

sys.path.insert(0, '$path_to/mgl_nightly')

The runAdt.py, runPmv.py or runVision.py are in AutoDockTools/bin, Pmv/bin and Vision/bin folders respectively, that in turn is located in MGLToolsPckgs folder.

Please note that nightly builds may contain changes that are backwards incompatible, in which case you'll need to replace these scripts with the one provided in the nightly builds. An example of backwards-incompatible change is the change in API that would result in a Traceback similar to:

TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'foo'

Troubleshooting

If you experience problems running nightly builds, delete directory where you unpacked the tarball (rm -rf mgl_nightly) so that only stable release is executed. Don't forget to send us a bug report.

If your OS is not listed in the nightly builds, you can access our CVS repository and build the latest MGLTools from the source.
