Is there container for the latest (or close to latest) version of hail that I can install?

The docker container that I followed is this one.

Can’t do apt-get because I’m using compute Canada.

However should there be a later version that I can use instead of this old one?

Hey @garyzhubc,

Due to the recent DockerHub rate limiting, our plans to release a public Hail image have become a bit complicated. We’re working on it, but there’s nothing currently available.

In the meantime, I recommend building this Dockerfile that I maintain and pushing it to a Docker repository you control:

Hi @dking Thanks for the comment. I have changed to the latest version as but got the same error.

Are you sure you have a bed file? Can you share the first few lines of it?

Sure I have updated to the current version now using the Dockerfile that you provided but the same error persist. .bed is a binary file so I’m not sure if it make sense to open it directly?

Ok I think I get the answer from another post. Thanks @dking.
