        Hi everybody.
        I was “installing” PyRosetta on a linux cluster, i got a tough problem when trying to run “from rosetta import *”:
        Traceback (most recent call last):
        File ““, line 1, in
        File “rosetta/”, line 14, in

        import utility, core
        File “rosetta/utility/”, line 1, in

        from _rosetta_utility_000 import *
        ImportError: /lib64/tls/ version `GLIBC_2.4′ not found (required by rosetta/utility/

        below is the configuration of cluster:
        LSB Version: :core-3.0-amd64:core-3.0-ia32:core-3.0-noarch:graphics-3.0-amd64:graphics-3.0-ia32:graphics-3.0-noarch
        Distributor ID: RedHatEnterpriseAS
        Description: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 6)
        Release: 4
        Codename: NahantUpdate6

        PyRosetta version to install:

        would anybody put up a solution to “bypass”,or “solution” the problem?

        Thanks in advance for any attention!

          Can you ask your Sysadmin to install glibc_2.4? If not then you can try Ubuntu64bit version or build PyRosetta from scratch.

            Thanks for your suggestion!
            The sysadmin is reluctant to upgrade the system,so…
            And the Ubuntu version PyRosetta also require GLIBC_2.4,

            Now that you have mentioned building PyRosetta from scratch,I’m extremely interested in how to do that.In fact,we use PyRosetta to test some of our ideas or algorithms,some of which are developed by our team in Rosetta.If we are able to build PyRosetta from scratch,that would help to boost our development works in Rosetta.By the way,we don’t need to limit ourselves on the Red Hat cluster,althrough it’s the most powerful parallel machine available.If possible,I’d like to know the detailed information about building PyRosetta from scratch.Any clues and hints are appreciated.
            Thanks again!
