Installing dependencies on Debian/Ubuntu (requires root)

Fortran dependencies

The Fortran Hyperion code requires a Fortran compiler, HDF5 and MPICH2.

You can install these dependencies with:

sudo apt-get install libmpich2-dev libhdf5-serial-dev

Python dependencies

If you use the system Python installation, you can install the dependencies for the Python code with:

sudo apt-get install python-numpy python-dev python-astropy python-h5py python-matplotlib

If instead you use the Anaconda Python Distribution you can install the Python dependencies with:

conda install numpy matplotlib h5py astropy


You are now ready to install Hyperion. Proceed to the Hyperion installation instructions!
