CCP4 Updates

Update packages

The tarballs linked to this page are for use with CCP4 updater (ccp4um) in off-line mode (e.g. without network connection). You do not need them if your CCP4 update works normally through the internet.

Follow instructions below if you do intend to use the CCP4 updater in off-line mode. Skip step 1 if you have already installed CCP4 update No 4.

1. Replace the old version of $CCP4/bin/ccp4um-bin with the new one:

2. Download and un-compress the update directory:


3a. use the command line:

ccp4um -uri path-to-update-directory


3b. use the graphic mode:

Launch ccp4um; answer "No" in the first dialog suggesting revision of proxy settings; press "OK" in the second dialog suggesting installation of updates from local update directory; navigate to the update directory in the file browser, select it and press "Choose". From this point on, ccp4um will operate as usual.
