Installation on Debian systems

This is a short description for the Seismic Handler installation on Debian 4.0 (Etch). You'll need administrative rights to perform the installation! There is also a virtual applicant available: VMware Debian.


Thanks to Jens Oeser from Munich university ready-to-install Debian packages are available for Intel based cpus:

Installation steps

Install all downloaded files as root user:

dpkg -i libmotif3_2.2.3-2_i386.deb libmotif-dev_2.2.3-2_i386.deb motif-clients_2.2.3-2_i386.deb shm_2.4g-1_i386.deb


If you use bash as your standard shell, you should define the following aliases (for more convenience place them in .bash_rc or .bash_aliases):

alias SH='tcsh -c SH'
alias SHM='tcsh -c SHM'

Hint: 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.
