Hi Patrick,

One thing I forgot to remind you to do was to change the runtime link
in ~mcidas.  The setup on gizmo is for 'runtime' to be a link to the
distribution of McIDAS you want to use.  It is currently set to use
the original v2003 build, not the new v2004 build.

What you need to do to change this is:

- make sure no McIDAS applications are running
<login as 'mcidas'>
cd ~mcidas
rm runtime
ln -s mcidas04 runtime

After this, you will be using the newly built v2004 executables.

Sounds good.  Add the steps above to the list.

If by local apps you mean modifications to applications in the v2004
distribution, then yes -- but doing a 'make install.mcxall' is overkill
since it reinstalls everything, and that takes a long time on gizmo.

If you mean new applications (applications with different names than
ones in the v2004 distribution, then I think that we should setup a
build environment that is outside of the mcidas2004/src directory
since this would make your life easier as time goes on.

Cheers,

Tom
