Users upgrading from a previous version of McIDAS-X will at a minimum need to do the following.
to the HOME directory of the user mcidas
Assuming that the McIDAS-X/-XCD is to be installed in the standard location, and the user wants to use the GNU gcc/gfortran compiler combination, The entries for McINST_ROOT and VENDOR will look like:
|non-Conforming shells (e.g., .cshrc)||Conforming shells (e.g., .profile, .bash_profile, or .kshrc)|
# McINST_ROOT and VENDOR non-conforming shell defines # needed to build McIDAS setenv McINST_ROOT $HOME setenv VENDOR -gfortran # NOTE: uncomment the line that sets MySQL_ROOT if you want # to build with MySQL support: # - leave the value blank if MySQL is installed in a # standard location # - specify the value as the root directory of the # MySQL installation if MySQL is not installed in # a standard location # setenv MySQL_ROOT TRUE if ( -e $HOME/admin/mcidas_env.csh ) then source $HOME/admin/mcidas_env.csh endif
# McINST_ROOT and VENDOR conforming shell defines # needed to bulid McIDAS McINST_ROOT=$HOME VENDOR=-gfortran export McINST_ROOT VENDOR # NOTE: uncomment the two lines that set MySQL_ROOT if you # want to build with MySQL support: # - leave the value blank if MySQL is installed in a # standard location # - specify the value as the root directory of the MySQL # installation if MySQL is not installed in a standard # location # MySQL_ROOT=TRUE # export MySQL_ROOT if [ -e $HOME/admin/mcidas_env.sh ]; then . $HOME/admin/mcidas_env.sh fi
After adding entries to your shell definition file, make those additions active in your session (e.g. source .cshrc, . .profile, . .bash_profile, etc.).
cd ~mcidas chmod +x mcunpack ./mcunpack
cd ~/mcidas2017/src make mcx <- to build McIDAS-X only -- OR -- make all <- to build both McIDAS-X and McIDAS-XCD -- OR -- make all xrd <- to build McIDAS-X, McIDAS-XCD and McIDAS-XRD

cd ~/mcidas2017/src <- to install McIDAS-X only make install -- OR -- make install.all <- to install both McIDAS-X and McIDAS-XCD -- OR -- make install.all install.xrd <- to install McIDAS-X, McIDAS-XCD and McIDAS-XRD
cd $MCDATA mcxconfig
Recommendation: use defaults presented by mcxconfig for most actions.
If you are upgrading an existing McIDAS installation, you may need to do the following before running mcxconfig:
cd $McINST_ROOT/data cp LOCAL.NAM LOCAL.NAM.2016
When mcxconfig advises you to review file REDIRECTions in $McINST_ROOT/data/LOCAL.NAM, merge any/all locally added definitions from $McINST_ROOT/data/LOCAL.NAM.2016 into $McINST_ROOT/data/LOCAL.NAM.
cd $McINST_ROOT/data cp LSSERVE.BAT LSSERVE.BAT.2016
When mcxconfig advises you to review server mapping table actions in $McINST_ROOT/data/LSSERVE.BAT, merge any/all locally added definitions from $McINST_ROOT/data/LSSERVE.BAT.2016 into $McINST_ROOT/data/LSSERVE.BAT.
cd $MCDATA rm DECINFO.DAT
<login as 'ldm'> ldmadmin start <exit>
