LCGCMake Installation Notes

This page documents my attempts to install the LCG software core on various non-traditional machines.

The basic installation instructions are here for a standard Scientific Linix CERN 6 installation: LCGCMake SLC6 Installation

Installing on [email protected]

Setup

  • Clean Cooley Login (nothing from .softrc.cooley)
  • Create working directory
    • mkdir /path/to/lcg
    • export $LCG_PROJECT_PATH=/path/to/lcg
    • cd $LCG_PROJECT_PATH
    • soft add +cmake
    • soft add +gcc-4.8.1

Install Dependencies

  • mkdir dependencies
  • cd dependencies
  • mkdir install

procmail

  • wget ftp://ftp.ucsb.edu/pub/mirrors/procmail/procmail-3.22.tar.gz
  • tar zxf procmail-3.22.tar.gz
  • cd procmail-3.22
  • make lockfile CC=$(which gcc) CXX=$(which g++)
    • press enter when prompted
    • this only compiles lockfile because other parts of this package fail, but we don't need them.
  • cd ..
  • mkdir install/bin
  • ln -s $PWD/procmail-3.22/src/lockfile $PWD/install/bin/lockfile

libxml2

  • wget ftp://xmlsoft.org/libxml2/libxml2-2.9.2.tar.gz
  • tar zxf libxml2-2.9.2.tar.gz
  • cd libxml2-2.9.2
  • ./configure --with-python --with-threads --prefix=/path/to/lcg/dependencies/install
  • make -j 10
  • make install
  • cd ..

libxslt

  • xslt (bottom of page) (depends on libxml2)
  • git clone git://git.gnome.org/libxslt
  • cd libxslt
  • ./autogen.sh --with-python --with-libxml-prefix=/path/to/lcg/dependencies/install --prefix=/path/to/lcg/dependencies/install
  • make -j 10
  • make install
  • you may need to manually copy ./xslt-config to the install directory and change it's permissions.
  • cd ..

export environment

  • export PATH=/path/to/lcg/dependencies/install/bin:$PATH
  • export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/lcg/dependencies/install/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

LCGCMake

Get LCGCMake repository

  • cd $LCG_PROJECT_PATH
  • svn co http://svn.cern.ch/guest/lcgsoft/trunk/lcgcmake
  • mkdir lcgcmake-build
  • mkdir lcgcmake-install

Before you build

  • The bits below are summarized in this patch file Cooley Patch File
  • Edit lcgcmake/toolchain.cmake line 2
     set(LCG_VERSION dev2 CACHE STRING "HepTools version (aka LCG configuration)") 

    to

     set(LCG_VERSION 78root6 CACHE STRING "HepTools version (aka LCG configuration)") 
  • You have to force cmake to identify your machine as slc6 because some of the tarballs live on a webserver with slc6 in the name, in the case of Cooley, slc6 gets replaced with linux and the downloads fail since there is no tarball with linux in the name. Edit lcgcmake/cmake/toolchain/heptools-common.cmake around line 75 from
    else()
            execute_process(COMMAND cat /etc/os-release OUTPUT_VARIABLE os_release OUTPUT_STRIP_TRAILING_WHITESPACE)
            if(os_release MATCHES "centos")
              set(os "cc")
              string(REGEX REPLACE ".*VERSION_ID=\"([0-9]+).*" "\\1" osvers "${os_release}")
            else()
              message(WARNING "Unkown OS, assuming 'linux'")
              set(os linux)
              set(osvers)
            endif()
          endif()

    to

     else()
            execute_process(COMMAND cat /etc/os-release OUTPUT_VARIABLE os_release OUTPUT_STRIP_TRAILING_WHITESPACE)

              set(os "cc")
              string(REGEX REPLACE ".*VERSION_ID=\"([0-9]+).*" "\\1" osvers "${os_release}")
            else()

Building LCG

  • cd lcgcmake-build
  • cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=../lcgcmake-install -DCMAKE_C_COMPILER=$(which gcc) -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=$(which g++) ../lcgcmake

When Build Fails

When a build fails, look at this list for fixes, fix, then continue with make -j 10.

  • After the pythia8 packages download and fail to build, the Makefile's must be edited, the files lcgcmake-build/generators/pythia8-201/src/pythia8/201/Makefile have $(CXX_SONAME),$(notdir [email protected]) which must be changed to -shared.
    • sed 's/$(CXX_SONAME),$(notdir\ [email protected])/-shared/g' generators/pythia8-201/src/pythia8/201/Makefile > generators/pythia8-201/src/pythia8/201/Makefile.tmp
  • After evtgen package downloads and fails to build, the Makefile must be edited, the file lcgcmake-build/generators/evtgen-1.2.0/src/evtgen/1.2.0/src/Makefile have $(shell find … ) commands inside, Add -not -path '*/\.*' to the end of these finds. This is to exclude the many stupid hidden files ._<fildname> that someone must have commit to the repo from their MAC.
  • After ROOT 6 downloads and fails the build, you can make the following edits to fix the ODBC files. Add to the files lcgcmake-build/projects/ROOT-6.02.12/src/ROOT/6.02.12/sql/odbc/inc/TODBC*.h a #include<sqlcli.h> just under the #include<sql.h> at the top of the file. Add to the files lcgcmake-build/projects/ROOT-6.02.12/src/ROOT/6.02.12/sql/odbc/src/TODBCServer.cxx and lcgcmake-build/projects/ROOT-6.02.12/src/ROOT/6.02.12/sql/odbc/src/TODBCStatement.cxx a #include<sqlcli1.h> at the top of the files.
  • Create setup environment <file bash setup.sh>

#!/usr/bin/env bash soft add +cmake soft add +gcc-4.8.1
