This is a brief explanation of how to compile and install the required
dependencies and ASPECT itself. This
installation procedure guarantees fastest runtimes, and largest flexibility,
but usually requires more work than the options mentioned in the previous
sections. While it is possible to install ASPECT’s dependencies in
particular p4est, Trilinos, and deal.II
manually, we recommend to use the
candi software (see
candi was written as an installation
program for deal.II, and includes a number of system specific instructions
that will be listed when starting the program. It can be flexibly configured
to allow for non-default compilers or libraries (e.g. Intel’s MKL
instead of LAPACK) by changing entries in the configuration file
or by providing platform specific installation files.
In case you encounter problems during the installation, please consult our wiki (https://github.com/geodynamics/aspect/wiki) for frequently asked questions and special instructions for MacOS users, before posting your questions on the forum (https://community.geodynamics.org/c/aspect).
