I am trying to install TPP 5.2.0 on CentOS Linux release 7.8.2003.

After compiling without error, I executed the command ```make install```. Then an error occurred as ```make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/local/tpp/lib/Mayu/', needed by `install'.  Stop.```

Is this due to a lack of prerequisite software? By the way, the folder "/usr/local/tpp/lib" is not existed under "tpp", is this normal?

Looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,

Anyway, I have solve this problem by using Docker based on Ubuntu 16.04. I suppose it is a dependency problem.

Hi, Wenhao. Gald to know that you have solved the problem. I have met the same error while installing the 5.2.0 TPP. So I deleted the compiled and source file and tried everything again. Somehow it worked, the only change was that I used chmod 777 <INSTALL_DIR > before make all to make sure the installation program could get access to INSTALL_DIR and TPP_DATADIR. 
   By the way, I wonder which docker content you used? Planning to use docker on another cluster, installing the dependency on CentOS is really tiring.

You can get a recipe for using TPP with Docker here:


(or just Google for: tpp docker)


Although our main recipe for installing TPP 5.2 on Linux is for Ubuntu:

if someone has a recipe for CentOS, send it along to us and we’ll post it on the wiki.
