Installing Seismic Handler

Detailed installation instructions are available for Ubuntu 8.04, opensuse 11 and Debian 4.0 Etch.

With installation script

For Solaris/Linux? an installation script is available. It installs and configures SH/SHM on Solaris or Linux machines. It was tested using the gcc compiler. Please chmod a+x SHM-install.csh after copying it. Please make sure that you are an in a (t)csh and have the openmotif libraries including development package installed on your system (and, of course, the C-compiler gcc).

If you want to run the SH/SHM installation from different accounts then you have to manually edit the file $SH_ROOT/setup/shsetup after the installation script has completed. Please change the line where the userroot is defined. An example would be: change set userroot=/myhome/myname/shfiles to set userroot=$HOME/shfiles. If you do not make this edit then users other than the installer will get a not writable scratch directory and SH/SHM will stop immediately.

Create your own configuration file to keep your personal configuration when installing new updates of SHM. Make a copy of $SH_INPUTS/shm-config.txt and create an environment variable SH_USER_PARAM pointing to it. E.g.: cp $SH_INPUTS/shm-config.txt $HOME and setenv SH_USER_PARAM $HOME/shm-config.txt. Put the setenv-command to your $HOME/.cshrc file to make it permanent. Then edit your configuration file $SH_USER_PARAM to match your needs. Please read the documentation page of the configuration file for details.

Without installation script

If the installation script does not work or for some reason you don't want to use it, the manual installation without this script is as follows:

  1. select parent for SH directory tree: cd <parent-dir>
  2. tar all files from tar archive to this directory, uncompress with gzip before if necessary
    gzip -d <tarfile>.gz
    tar xvf <tarfile>
  3. change directory to new created sh directory: cd shfiles
  4. Edit the file setup/shsetup and set the root path shcroot to the actual value. If you need to compile the source you also should set the correct compiler (must be an ANSI compiler like gcc or acc) and the appropriate compiler switches.
  5. run shsetup. This should create two directories ~/shfiles/shscratch and ~/shfiles/private and define environment variables SH_.... This works on (t)csh-shells only, sorry for this:
    source setup/shsetup
    If you are able to use the executables (if provided in the tar-file) you are finished with installation and should be able to run the program by typing SH. If you have to recompile the source you have to continue.
  6. cd to the root directory and make SH
    • for SH alone:
      cd $SH_ROOT
      make depend
      make world
    • for SH and SHM:
      cd $SH_ROOT
      make depend_shm
      make shm
      make world

Now you may start shc_world by the alias SH and shc by SH_N. Similarly, use SHM for shm_world and SHM_N for shm. Please note that two menu entries of SHM, LocSAT and FK, call external programs. These external programs are not part of the SHM-distribution. Some precompiled versions of these programs may be downloaded separately from our ftp server. Available are currently versions for Sun (Solaris 2) and HP and Linux.
