DIANE Installation and Download

DIANE is a prototype and the implementation serves as a proof-of-concept rather than production system. However current beta versions are quite stable and they should actually do some good work for you.

We welcome your comments and suggestions both to the implementation and the overall ideas and design.

Current version: 1.6.0 slc3_gcc323 slc4_amd64_gcc34 slc4_gcc34 Release Notes

Central AFS installation at CERN

instructions for slc3 (for the moment)

If you are at CERN: log in to lxslc3.cern.ch and set up your csh with this command:

source /afs/cern.ch/sw/arda/install/DIANE/env.csh

You will get $DIANE_TOP variable pointing to the top of the installation tree and ganga in the PATH.

You are ready to go with the DIANETutorial

Local installation

If you are not at CERN you need to download and install DIANE locally via a Distribution Kit.

Get diane.installation.manager (installer requires python 1.5 or newer) and do:

./diane.installation.manager 1.6.0 download

Follow the instructions given by the installer. By default DIANE will be installed to ~/DIANE. You may change installation directory with --prefix=DIR

If you have any problems please first check Installation Problems. Check also --help option of the installer.

In order to submit jobs to the batch systems and the Grid you should also install ganga: it's easy, free and takes 3 minutes wink Check it at: http://cern.ch/ganga. Put ganga into PATH environment variable.

Supported platforms

DIANE is developed, compiled and tested on Scientific Linux 3 (slc3_gcc323) so make sure you have a compatible operating system if you want to have a fully automatic installation.

However DIANE should run without problems on any Unix-based platform (Linux, Solaris, MacOS X etc.) but you will need to recompile external packages yourself and tweak some configuration files. Old CERN platform rh73_gcc323 is not supported anymore.

Additional build platforms may be available for some released versions: slc4_amd64_gcc34, slc4_gcc34 .Contact us if you need any of these.

Site specific setup

Part of the setup (such as location of gcc compiler) may be site specific. Distribution of DIANE uses a setup suitable for cern.ch site. If you want to change these setting have a look at site-specific directories in $DIANE_TOP/etc/site/* and the $DIANE_TOP/etc/site.csh script.


DIANE requires python2.2 or greater.
