Hi Stephen,

You should be able to use the unmodified version of rockstar. Matt's modifications allow you to add a halo 'field' per se that can compute a halo quantities that Rockstar doesn't normally compute. I haven't used this version, and the unmodified Rockstar works fine for me thus far. 

However, I don't think we ever added a Rockstar installation option to the install script, despite the docs text. Does Rockstar without modification work for you?

Hi all,

I am trying to explore the rockstar halo finder within yt following
the text Chris Moody added to the docs:


The instructions include downloading a patched version of rockstar
from this link:


which gives me a "permission denied" message. I've poked around in yt,
and I don't think that the rockstar code is replicated in there. Are
the instructions wrong, or are the permissions incorrect on Matt's BB

I also noticed that in the rockstar documentation, it says "The yt
installation allows the option to install and configure Rockstar
appropriately" - but I can't find anything about rockstar in
install_script.sh. Am I missing something?

Thanks for the help!
