Interactive machines

Since Sep. 12 only CVMFS is used to distribute the external packages at the GSI.

The external packages (fairsoft) are installed on the GSI cluster and can be used directly from all GSI interactive machines. before compiling the experiment code one has to set the SIMPATH as in the following table:

Set the SIMPATH to the external packages that match your system, and the release you use
Etch32 SIMPATH=/misc/cbmsoft/Etch32/XXXX/fairsoft/
Etch64 SIMPATH=/misc/cbmsoft/Etch64/XXXX/fairsoft/
Lenny32 SIMPATH=/misc/cbmsoft/Lenny32/XXXX/fairsoft/
Lenny64 SIMPATH=/misc/cbmsoft/Lenny64/XXXX/fairsoft/
Squeeze64 SIMPATH=/cvmfs/

where XXXX= release date, i.e: jul09, jan11, may11, jan12, sep12, apr13

To find out in which system you are at the GSI cluster type:
echo $OS

System $OS
Etch 4.0
Lenny 5.0.9
Squeeze 6.0.3
