EPICS installation

fftw installation

grace installation

dataviewer compilation

metaio installation

Root compilation

GDS compilation

GDS is also maintained in a CDS Subversion repository. So, as with dataviewer, we will checkout the gds repository, export it, and build from there. The configure will use some switches to limit the build to non-DMT tools and to add EPICS tools.

  1. mkdir /ligo/cds/project/repos/gds
  2. cd /ligo/cds/project/repos/gds
  3. svn co --username=<first.last>

  4. cd trunk
  5. svn export . /ligo/cds/project/gds-2.14.2
  6. cd /ligo/cds/project/gds-2.14.2
  7. ./bootstrap
  8. export GDSBUILD=online
  9. ./configure --prefix=/opt/apps/linux64/gds-2.15.0 --enable-only-dtt --with-epics=/opt/apps/linux64/epics

  10. make
  11. make install
  12. cd /opt/apps/linux64/
  13. ln -s gds-2.15.0 gds
