Sam Preston wrote us warning that there may be issues with the current BLAS, LAPACK and numpy rpms available through YaST on SuSE 10.2:
I have run into another problem not directly related to VisTrails, though. I installed blas, lapack, and numpy from Yast in OpenSUSE 10.2, and got some errors when trying to build scipy. After looking at a couple of discussions, it seems that these packages are broken in 10.2:
VisTrails includes integrated support for checking and installing required packages on Ubuntu. See installing VisTrails on Ubuntu for more information.
VisTrails Module Packages
VisTrails makes use of packages of Modules to define and form valid workflows. Some packages are maintained and distributed with the VisTrails itself and are considered part of the core functionality. However, work has also been done on developing user-made and maintained Module Packages. Below are a current list of packages maintained by VisTrails and user packages maintained outside the core source repository. The Package Name field describes the name required by the addPackage() directive in the .vistrails/startup.py file required to load the package.
Web Services Demos
Some Bioinformatics workflows examples are available here.
