Installing iman on Linux-64 (experience with mps-pc10)

For installing iman, create users idl val and stryker

Copy the entire val home directory from pc10 to /home/val on the new machine including at least







Copy the contents of the 4 usr.local.* folders into the appropriate folders in /usr/local/

Copy the entire pgplot folder to /usr/local

Make sure that permissions are 0744for everything except the executables and directories, which should be 0755

Make symbolic links in /usr/local/bin as follows, with commands like

ln -s /home/val/cc/image/iman/iman2/iman2 iman

to create an entry as follows with

ls -l /usr/local/bin

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 35 2008-08-05 16:19 iman -> /home/val/cc/image/iman/iman2/iman2

ls -l /usr/local/bin should then produce all the following lines:

binan -> /home/val/cc/image/binan/binan1*

iman -> /home/val/cc/image/iman/iman2/iman2*

mapanm2 -> /home/val/cc/image/mapanm2/mapanm21*

mapans -> /home/val/cc/image/mapans/mapans1*

pgbind -> /usr/local/pgplot/pgbind*

pgxwin_server -> /usr/local/pgplot/pgxwin_server*

ls -l /usr/local/lib should then produce all the following lines:

-rwxr--r-- 1 root root 9391 2008-08-06 10:55*

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 107384 2008-08-05 16:24 libcpgplot.a

-rwxr--r-- 1 root root 7338 2008-08-06 10:58*

-rwxr--r-- 1 root root 104432 2008-08-06 11:00*

-rwxr--r-- 1 root root 290963 2008-08-05 16:24*

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 142648 2008-09-08 18:59*

Add the following two files to /etc/profile.d, with permissions 0755:

pgplot.csh (which consists of the following line):

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/local/lib (which consists of the following line):

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib

Test the function of pgplot by executing


use device /XWINDOW

and see the pretty graphs.
