Installation is easy. After cloning the project onto your machine, simply use the file:

$ git clone
$ cd skutil
$ python install


After installation, you can launch the test suite from outside the source directory (you will need to have the nose package installed):

$ nosetests -v skutil

Troubleshooting Installation Issues

Skutil depends on the ability to compile Fortran code. For different platforms, there are different ways to install gcc:

  • Mac OS (this may take a while):
brew install gcc

There is a bug in some setups that will still cause issues in symlinking the gcc files via homebrew. If this is the case, the following line should clear things up:

brew link --overwrite gcc
  • Linux:
sudo apt-get install gcc
