Hi Ambrose,

Where did you get the program from? As far as I am aware it is available from Jim Kent's CVS & is the only place you can get it from. This blog has some good information on how to build it (unfortunately the maintainer has taken the blog down so it's only available from Google's cached copy)


Anyway the server is at :pserver:anonymous at genome-test.cse.ucsc.edu:/cbse and the password is genome. The source can be checked out using 

cvs co -kk -rbeta kent 

I would check that the beta release tag is still valid. Once you've complied the general utilities/libraries then the lavToAxt should be available from hg/mouseStuff/lavToExt
