Can I install my own software packages?

Many common statistical applications are already available, pre-installed in the RCE. If you need additional software for your work in the RCE, you are free to download, build, and install software within the space that has been allocated for your RCE home directory and project space.

When you run your configure script, give it an argument of --prefix=$HOME.

If the software you need is available from a trusted repository, we may also be able to add your software to the list of default applications in the RCE. Please contact us with your request.
