Install CMS software

Follow the steps below to install the CMS package <package> on Debian
(CMKIN_6_1_0, OSCAR_3_9_8, ORCA_8_13_0, CMSSW_0_6_0).

  • Upgrade to Debian Sid
Install libboost-dev and libboost-thread packages.
  • Create some symbolic links:
ln -s /usr/bin/make /usr/bin/gmake
ln -s /usr/lib/    /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
apt-get install libxml-parser-perl
  • Download rpms
cd <download-directory>
./ <package>
  • Install
cd XCMSInstall
setenv VO_CMS_SW_DIR <install-directory>
./ -c default     -f cmsset.csh

Edit the following lines in cmsset.csh:

# Option used: RPMOPTS -r "--nodeps"
# setenv CMS_RPMDB_POLICY new
# setenv CMS_GCC_POLICY system
setenv GCC_DIR /usr
setenv GCC_VER 3.3.5
setenv GCC_EXEC_PREFIX /usr/lib/gcc-lib/

The script may have to be changed as well:

my $rpmopts = "--nodeps";

Change cern related from 2003 to 2004. Install packages

./ -d "<packages>" -f cmsset.csh -g config
  • Save cmsset.csh for later use. Before working with CMS software, each time source cmsset.csh in order to set necessary variables.
  • For running on Debian Sid, cxxcompiler, f77compiler and ccompiler have to be reconfigured to use the compiler of the machine. In addition, for ORCA_8_13_0, pythia has to be set up.
scramv1 setup -i cxxcompiler << EOF

scramv1 setup -i f77compiler << EOF

scramv1 setup -i ccompiler << EOF

scramv1 setup pythia
