How To Install mcv-int64 on CentOS 8
In this tutorial, we will discuss How To Install mcv-int64 on CentOS 8
yum package managers.
Also, we will demonstrate how to uninstall and update
mcv-int64 as well.
One-liner Install Command
If you are only interested in the installation command, here is a quick answer for you:
or if you use
sudo yum makecache && sudo yum -y install scotch
sudo dnf makecache && sudo dnf -y install scotch
But if you are interested in the details with step-by-step instructions, the following information will be helpful.
mcv-int64 and How to Install It?
Short description: programs and libraries for graph, mesh and hypergraph partitioning
First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running CentOS 8. This guide was written specifically with a server running CentOS 8 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.
Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.
There are several ways to install mcv-int64 on CentOS 8. You can use (links are clickable):
In the following sections, we will describe each method in detail. You can choose one of them or refer to the recommended one.
Install mcv-int64 on CentOS 8 using dnf
First, update dnf packages database with
dnf by running the next command:
sudo dnf makecache --refresh
After updating database,
You can install mcv-int64 using
dnf by running the
sudo dnf -y install scotch
Install mcv-int64 on CentOS 8 using yum
Because mcv-int64 is available in CentOS 8’s default
it is possible to install it from these repositories using the
To begin, update local packages database with
yum using the following command.
sudo yum makecache --refresh
Now can install mcv-int64 package on your server/computer by running the following command:
sudo yum -y install scotch
How to upgrade (update) a single package mcv-int64 using yum?
To update all the packages available on the system:
If you want to update a specific package like mcv-int64 in this example you should use the following command:
yum update scotch
To downgrade a package to an earlier version:
yum downgrade scotch
How to Upgrade mcv-int64 on CentOS 8 with dnf?
When you run the
dnf update, all system packages with available updates are updated.
However, if you want to upgrade a single package, then you would have to pass the package name as
the argument to the dnf update command.
dnf update scotch
How To remove mcv-int64 from CentOS 8
To uninstall only the
mcv-int64 package you can execute
sudo dnf remove scotch
Extra info and code examples
Its purpose is to apply graph theory, with a divide and conquer approach, to scientific computing problems such as graph and mesh partitioning, static mapping, and sparse matrix ordering, in application domains ranging from structural mechanics to operating systems or bio-chemistry. The SCOTCH distribution is a set of programs and libraries which implement the static mapping and sparse matrix reordering algorithms developed within the SCOTCH project. SCOTCH has many interesting features: o Its capabilities can be used through a set of stand-alone programs as well as through the libSCOTCH library, which offers both C and Fortran interfaces. o It provides algorithms to partition graph structures, as well as mesh structures defined as node-element bipartite graphs and which can also represent hypergraphs. o It can map any weighted source graph onto any weighted target graph. The source and target graphs may have any topology, and their vertices and edges may be weighted. Moreover, both source and target graphs may be disconnected. This feature allows for the mapping of programs onto disconnected subparts of a parallel architecture made up of heterogeneous processors and communication links. o It computes amalgamated block orderings of sparse matrices, for efficient solving using BLAS routines. o Its running time is linear in the number of edges of the source graph, and logarithmic in the number of vertices of the target graph for mapping computations. o It can handle indifferently graph and mesh data structures created within C or Fortran programs, with array indices starting from 0 or 1. o It offers extended support for adaptive graphs and meshes through the handling of disjoint edge arrays. o It is dynamically parametrizable thanks to strategy strings that are interpreted at run-time. o It uses system memory efficiently, to process large graphs and meshes without incurring out-of-memory faults; o It is highly modular and documented. Since it has been released under the CeCILL-C free/libre software license, it can be used as a testbed for the easy and quick development and testing of new partitioning and ordering methods. o It can be easily interfaced to other programs. The programs comprising the SCOTCH project have been designed to run in command-line mode without any interactive prompting, so that they can be called easily from other programs by means of system() or popen() calls, or piped together on a single command line. Moreover, vertex labeling capabilities allow for easy renumbering of vertices. o It provides many tools to build, check, and display graphs, meshes and matrix patterns. o It is written in C and uses the POSIX interface, which makes it highly portable. PT-SCOTCH uses the MPI interface, and optionally the POSIX threads.
