Basic installation on Linux from the nrn...tar.gz file is:
./configure make make install
If sources are obtained from the git repository, http://github.org/neuronsimulator/nrn , create the automake, autoconf, libtool generated files by: sh build.sh
Particularly useful configure options:
--prefix=`pwd` Install in place --without-x If the InterViews graphics library is not installed. --with-iv=/where/you/installed/it If iv was not installed in <prefix>/../iv --with-paranrn Parallel models on cluster computers using MPI (openmpi or mpich2) --with-nrnpython Use Python as an alternative interpreter (as well as the native HOC interpreter). This is required to use the Reaction-Diffusion extension.
