Bootstrap v3 0¶
The bootstrap process is now much simpler. Simply go to: ftp://ftp.fnal.gov/products/bootstrap/v3_0 and download the appropriate compressed tar image(s) for your system.
Note that there are two layouts of tarfile available, the "traditional" layout with separate database (
db), product (
prd), and setup (
etc) subdirectories, or the "unified"layout with all three of these directories overlaid at the top level.
- Make an empty directory wherever you would like, (
- unpack the tar file (or multiple tarfiles with the same layout) in that directory,
cd foo; tar xzvf ../ups_bootstrap_unified_v5_0_4_Linux+2.tar.gz)
- source the setups.sh or etc/setups.sh script in bash,
and you have a new products area where you can install other packages with upd, or with the unified layout, overlay other unified layout tarfiles, to install pacakges.
