Chapter 2 Main Installation 2.1 Create a directory for MIDAS First create a directory for MIDAS into which you will read the distribution tape (usually named something like /midas , which also can be referred as the MIDASHOME directory). 2.2 Retrieve MIDAS sources from the midas ftp account To retrieve MIDAS sources: % cd /midas % ftp ftp.eso.org Name: ftp Password: your email address ftp> cd /midaspub/11SEP/sources ftp> get README.sources ftp> binary (necessary for binary files) ftp> get 11SEPpl1.0.tar.gz ftp> get any other file ftp> quit Or visit the MIDAS homepage on the web: http://www.eso.org/sci/data-processing/software/esomidas/ . and click on the link ftp-retrieval to get to the MIDAS ftp area. To decompress and un-tar the MIDAS sources: % cd /midas % tar -zxvf 11SEPpl1.0.tar.gz 3

% ln -s 11SEPpl1.0 11SEP All unloaded files will come under the release directory 11SEP , also referred to as MIDVERS 1 . User support is offered on a best effort basis, only. We can provide help for problems, questions during installation or usage of the MIDAS system. If answers to questions cannot be obtained locally (e.g. through the manuals) or after consulting our FAQ on the WWW, please use the web interface of the MIDAS problem reporting system. This can be reached via the button ProblemReportForm on top of the MIDAS home page. 2.3 The AutoConfig Script A fully automated shell script, autoconfig , in the directory /midas/11SEP/install/unix wraps around the script, config , described below, and performs all the intermediate steps explained in the following sections. If you execute autoconfig you can skip all the sections until Verifying Midas . To execute the autoconfig script type: % cd /midas/11SEP/install/unix % sh autoconfig 2.4 The Config Script The shell script /midas/11SEP/install/unix/config is the front-end of the installation of MIDAS. It offers a menu of different options that are executed when selected by the option number. To execute the config script type: % cd /midas/11SEP/install/unix % sh config The config script will generate the following output on the screen: MIDAS CONFIG MENU: ================== 1 - list of MIDAS packages available 2 - select only MIDAS core 3 - select all MIDAS packages 1 If you do not use the standard MIDASHOME ( /midas ) and MIDVERS ( 11SEP ) settings, you have to update the file /midas/11SEP/local/default.mk, because MIDVERS and MIDASHOME are hard coded in there. 4

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
