To obtain a cutting-edge build of the Starlink Software Collection, run one of the following commands:
rsync -avz --delete --exclude=local --exclude=lost+found starlink.jach.hawaii.edu::starlink.x86_64/ star/ (for 64-bit Linux)
rsync -avz --delete --exclude=local --exclude=lost+found starlink.jach.hawaii.edu::starlink.i386/ star/ (for 32-bit Linux)
rsync -avz --delete --exclude=local --exclude=lost+found starlink.jach.hawaii.edu::stardev.x86_64/ stardev/ (for 64-bit Linux, cutting edge)
rsync -avz --delete --exclude=local --exclude=lost+found starlink.jach.hawaii.edu::stardev.EL5.x86_64/ stardev/ (for 64-bit Linux, CentOS 5, cutting edge)
rsync -avz --delete --exclude=local --exclude=lost+found starlink.jach.hawaii.edu::stardev.snowleopard/ /stardev/ (OS X, Snow Leopard, cutting edge)
rsync -avz --delete --exclude=local --exclude=lost+found starlink.jach.hawaii.edu::stardev.lion/ /stardev/ (OS X, Lion / Mountain Lion, cutting edge)
rsync -avz --delete --exclude=local --exclude=lost+found starlink.jach.hawaii.edu::stardev.mavericks/ /stardev/ (OS X, Mavericks, cutting edge)
The 64-bit Linux build will only run on a system that is compatible with CentOS 6. Note that is is a recent change from CentOS 5
- These builds are cutting edge so new bugs may have crept in, or it is possible to rsync while an installation is happening.
- The 32-bit Linux build is not updated as frequently as the 64-bit build, as it is not a version that is run at the JAC very frequently.
- The stardev.x86_64 is more cutting edge then the starlink.x86_64 build. It is also built for /stardev which is useful because it will not clash with any /star libraries you may have from a previous system-wide install. Use the stardev rsync if you are on a site that uses /star.
- The Mac OS X and CentOS 5 builds are automatically generated and may not have been tested.
- Starlink builds for Mac OS X are not relocatable and these ones will need to be installed in /stardev (or in a directory to which that is symlinked).
To use the Starlink builds for Mac OS X you will usually need to install the same prerequisites as for the latest release. Please follow the instructions given on that page, currently http://starlink.eao.hawaii.edu/starlink/2014ADownload
If you encounter any problems with these builds, email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
To set up your environment for use with the Starlink Software Collection, first set the STARLINK_DIR environment variable to the location of the stardev directory. For example, if you downloaded the tarball to /home/person/software and unzipped it there, the STARLINK_DIR environment variable to /home/person/software/stardev. It is recommended that you edit the stardev/etc/login, stardev/etc/cshrc and stardev/etc/profile files to set this environment variable at the top of each file.
To use the Starlink Software Collection on csh and related shells (like tcsh), source $STARLINK_DIR/etc/login and $STARLINK_DIR/etc/cshrc. On sh and related shells (like bash), source $STARLINK_DIR/etc/profile.
ORAC-DR for WFCAM
Because of the large size of WFCAM calibration files, they have been split off from the main download tarballs, as not everybody will be reducing WFCAM data using ORAC-DR. These calibrations can be downloaded here (901MB .tar.gz). The tar file will unzip into a wfcam/ directory in the directory you downloaded the tar file to. To install these calibration files, copy the directory into the $STARLINK_DIR/bin/oracdr/cal/ directory, thus creating the $STARLINK_DIR/bin/oracdr/cal/wfcam/ directory containing the calibration files.
