tar -zxf starlab_x.x.tgzIf your version of tar doesn't understand the "z" option, try
gunzip -c starlab_x.x.tgz | tar xf -(or just gunzip the tar file first!). The starlab subdirectory this creates will become the home directory for the new installation. We will refer to it here as starlab-directory.
The Starlab installation procedure has changed substantially (for the better!) with version 4.0. The new steps are described here. For earlier versions, follow the instructions in the README file in starlab-directory.
For version 4.0 and later, the installation is handled by configure and make. The simplest method is as follows. Move to the starlab directory,
cd starlab-directorythen, for (t)csh users, type
source AAA_SOURCE_MEIf you are a sh user (or don't know what you are), type
sh AAA_SOURCE_ME.shBy the way, if you wisely don't trust all-in-one scripts, relax! The AAA_SOURCE_ME scripts simply automate the following steps, keeping track of the output for you in the file install.log:
./configure make config_new source starlab_start make all rehash; kira --help # (a simple test)
If all goes well, then that's all there is to the installation of the (default) package! Configure should correctly identify the proper components of your system, but if an error occurs during installation, you may have to tailor the compilation and/or other options to your site, as described in the next section. Note that not all of Starlab is built by default. The configuration file local/cshrc.starlab described in the next section also explains how to change how much of the package is compiled.
To define the Starlab environment in future logins or shells, (t)csh users should add the following lines to their .login or .cshrc file:
setenv STARLAB_PATH starlab-directory source $STARLAB_PATH/starlab_startUsers of sh should put the following in .profile:
STARLAB_PATH="starlab-directory" . $STARLAB_PATH/starlab_start.shYou may also want to add the Starlab executable directories $STARLAB_PATH/sbin and $STARLAB_PATH/bin to your search path.
|STARLAB_CCC||C++ compiler and necessary switches|
|STARLAB_CCC_FLAGS||Optional C++ compiler flags|
|STARLAB_OS_FLAG||Define the operating system|
|STARLAB_FORTRAN_LIBPATH||FORTRAN library location (include the "-L")|
|STARLAB_FORTRAN_LIB||FORTRAN library to use (include the "-l")|
|STARLAB_X11INC||Location of X header files|
|STARLAB_X11LIB||Location of X libraries|
The script also allows the user to specify the portions of Starlab actually built. See local/cshrc.starlab for details.
NOTE: If you modify this file, you must rerun $STARLAB_PATH/starlab_start, as described above, in order for the changes to take effect.
