Version 2.3.9 of SCANPS is available for Linux running on X86 hardware (e.g. Pentium III/IV or Athlon XP). It has been tested on Debian, RedHat and SuSE flavours of Linux with 2.4 kernels. The current distribution is compiled with the gcc 3.1 compiler.
SCANPS reads the entire sequence database into memory, so you must have enough physical memory (RAM) on the computer to store the database.
