Software Request

Installation of software on the KU Community Cluster system wide is done on a case by case basis. If you are the only one that is going to be using the software, then we ask that you install the software in your $HOME, $WORK, or $SCRATCH. Instructions on how to compile the most common type of software and how to create module files for use by you or your group can be viewed on a recorded user meeting on our Meetings page. If you require assistance compiling software, please contact us and we can help you.
