Install Hail on GNU/Linux

  • Install Java 8.

  • Install Python 3.6 or 3.7.

  • Install a recent version of the C and C++ standard libraries. GCC 5.0, LLVM version 3.4, or any later versions suffice.

  • Install BLAS and LAPACK.

  • Install Hail using pip.

On a recent Debian-like system, the following should suffice:

apt-get install -y \
    openjdk-8-jre-headless \
    g++ \
    python3.6 python3-pip \
    libopenblas-base liblapack3
python3.6 -m pip install hail

Now let’s take Hail for a spin!
