Cool SPP -- ChIP-seq program installation 2??

Hi guys,
I've tried install spp ( to my macbook pro or my ubuntu, met the same error. Stcuking for ages!! hope anyone can help

Here is some detailed infor:

I've successfully installed boost C++, and R( both are the most recent one).

below is the error message I got, every time, and on both machine :

Many thanks.

Hi Potatoo,

I am getting exactly the same error message when I tried installing spp version version 1.11 on my Mac and Linux pc. Any luck in fixing this bug?

You are missing the boost library. Install the boost library and try again. Here are my notes from a while back:

# install dependencies
sudo yum update
sudo yum install gcc-c++.x86_64
sudo yum install gcc-gfortran.x86_64
sudo yum install readline-static.x86_64
sudo yum install make.x86_64
sudo yum install zlib-devel.x86_64
sudo yum install boost-devel.x86_64

# install R

tar xvf R-2.14.1.tar.gz
cd R-2.14.1
# configure R with no X
sudo ./configure --with-x=no

sudo make
sudo make install

# Run R then install the following

# get spp
tar xvf spp_package.tar.gz
cd spp_package
sudo R CMD INSTALL spp_1.10.1.tar.gz

I also struggled on this issue, hope this can help (on mac OSX 10.8.5)

download latest version of spp (1.11) from

download the source for boost library and compile:

## do not forget the last step !
sudo ./b2 install

R CMD INSTALL spp_1.11.tar.gz
