Downloading Sequin

  1. Create an installation directory for sequin using the UNIX command mkdir, or using your graphical file manager.
  2. Clicking on the link corresponding to your version of UNIX, and the type of compression you prefer. See Notes below for help in choosing compression type.
    Linux sequin.linux.tar.gz
    SGI Irix
    sequin.sgi.tar.gz
    Solaris/Sparc
    sequin.solaris.tar.gz
    Solaris/Intel
    sequin.solarisintel.tar.gz
  3. Your Web browser may show a dialog box asking if you want to run the program, or save it to disk. Choose Save to disk... and save the file to your installation directory.
  4. If your Web browser can't download the file for some reason, see Troubleshooting. If the browser automatically downloads the file without asking for a directory to save to, find the downloaded file and move it to the installation directory.

Installing Sequin

  3. Type:
    tar -xvf sequin.*.tar
    This command will create a number of files and directories within the installation directory.
