Please note that installing packages generally requires superuser
(root, Administrator) privileges. Depending on your institues policies
you may not be able to install the package. If unsure, please check
with your local IT group before attempting an installation of ATSAS.
Please remove any existing ATSAS installations before installing a new version.
The ATSAS program suite is currently supported on three major platforms
and a number of versions thereof. Please
the package for your platform and choose the appropriate installation
description from the table below.
Download the latest package and install at the command line as superuser:
$ sudo yum install ATSAS-X.Y.Z-1.VERSION.ARCH.rpm
Here X.Y.Z corresponds to the current version of atsas,
VERSION to either el5 or el6, depending
on the distribution version and ARCH to either i386
or x86_64, depending on your hardware. If in doubt
use the package with the same VERSION and ARCH as given by:
These archives may be installed anywhere in the system, including a user
home directory, and thus may not require superuser privileges to install.
However, you will need to install dependency packages that are required for
ATSAS to work since, unlike when installing with the package manager, the
dependencies will not be installed automatically.
WARNING: The following description assumes that you are familiar
with your Linux system. If you are a novice on the command shell, please
ask your local IT support for help!
Depending on your distribution, open a terminal and verify that this is
a bash shell:
$ echo $SHELL
If the output is not /bin/bash, do not continue!
Unpack the downloaded binaries and support files into a convenient directory, e.g. $HOME/atsas:
$ mkdir $HOME/atsas
$ tar xfz atsas-X.Y.Z-1*.tar.gz -C $HOME/atsas
This will create $HOME/atsas/ATSAS-X.Y.Z-1.
Tell the system where to find the binaries and libraries:
Here 'VERSIONPATH' corresponds to the actual path on your system.
It depends on the distribution and to some extent even the version of the distribution,
so make sure that the correct library path is set.
$ dammif -v
If an error is given or a previously installed old version is shown, something went wrong.
Dependencies that may have to be installed manually:
Qt 4 (including QtGui, QtSVG, QtNetwork and Qt Assistant, if these are packaged separately)
