Using Genome STRiP with SLURM instead of LSF

I'm trying to use the most recent release of Genome STRiP for CNV calling, but my cluster doesn't use LSF. As a result, I'm getting following error all over the place:
ERROR 17:15:10,412 QGraph - Uncaught error running jobs. java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Unable to load library 'lsf': cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory at com.sun.jna.NativeLibrary.loadLibrary( at com.sun.jna.NativeLibrary.getInstance( at com.sun.jna.NativeLibrary.getInstance( at org.broadinstitute.gatk.utils.jna.lsf.v7_0_6.LibBat.<clinit>( at org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.engine.lsf.Lsf706JobRunner$.<init>(Lsf706JobRunner.scala:237) at org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.engine.lsf.Lsf706JobRunner$.<clinit>(Lsf706JobRunner.scala) at org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.engine.lsf.Lsf706JobRunner.<init>(Lsf706JobRunner.scala:48) at org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.engine.lsf.Lsf706JobManager.create(Lsf706JobManager.scala:36) at org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.engine.lsf.Lsf706JobManager.create(Lsf706JobManager.scala:34) at org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.engine.QGraph.newRunner(QGraph.scala:715) at org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.engine.QGraph.runJobs(QGraph.scala:457) at at org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.QCommandLine.execute(QCommandLine.scala:170) at org.broadinstitute.gatk.utils.commandline.CommandLineProgram.start( at org.broadinstitute.gatk.utils.commandline.CommandLineProgram.start( at org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.QCommandLine$.main(QCommandLine.scala:61) at org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.QCommandLine.main(QCommandLine.scala)

We use SLURM on our cluster. I saw on a previous post something about DRMAA support, which SLURM does. Are there additional options I can provide to make this run? Below is what I'm currently running. I have to cd into SV_DIR, otherwise I get errors of a queue system file not being found because SV_DIR is getting left out of the path for some reason:

cd ${SV_DIR}

java -Xmx20g -cp ${classpath} \
org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.QCommandLine \
-S ${SV_DIR}/qscript/discovery/cnv/CNVDiscoveryPipeline.q \
-S ${SV_DIR}/qscript/SVQScript.q \
-cp ${classpath} \

    I'm not sure what the right parameters for SLURM are but to use DRMAA you'll want to add something like:

    -jobRunner Drmaa \
    -gatkJobRunner Drmaa \
    -jobNative ' XX ' \
    -jobNative ' YY ' \

    where XX and YY are different options to pass to the SLURM job submitter.

    Hope that helps.
