Today I installed a local version of galaxy, which I had done successfully a few years ago. I installed a local version of galaxy, so I made myself an administrator and was able to access the tool shed. The non-beta installation was not functional, but I did get the beta version to at least provide a status. After 20 minutes the sam_merge package was still cloning. The new packages, regardless of installation status, were never available to me via my local galaxy.
Is there anything additionally I need to do to install a tool locally ?
