Hi Vidya,

So I think your best option is to try the RPM.  I built a Fedora Core 2 
RPM for DAS2 and just released it to http://biopackages.net last night.  
I could really use someone to test it so feedback would be great.  The 
RPM approach is nice because yum will take care of installing all the 
dependencies including the chado database.

If you're not using FC2 then it's a little but more involved.  We don't 
really have a lot of docs but I could update the README in cvs (see 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gmod it's the "das2" module).   Until 
recently there wasn't  really an install process you just do a "perl 
Makefile.PL; make; make test" to run DAS2.  There's now an "install" 
target so you can do "perl Makefile.PL; make; sudo make install".  You 
need to set some environmental variables, install a chado DB, and make 
sure all the perl module dependencies are installed before you do this 
though.  See the Makefile.PL for the environmental variables you need to 
set.  I'll update the README to include information about the dependencies.

Hope this helps!  I cc'd Allen Day too, he might have some helpful hints...
