Building SEAL on windows -- the Real Story smile

Logging in on the Terminal Server and setting up the environment

On your windows box, check if you have the Terminal Server client installed: From the Start menu choose Accessories->Communications->Remote Desktop Connection to connect to, you may supply your login and domain (CERN) at this time (your pwd will be prompted).

Otherwise install it from G:\Applications\Microsoft\Terminal Services\TS Win XP client\msrdpcli.exe (where G: is your DFS disk).

Setting up AFS

From the Start menu, select All Programs->OpenAFS->Client->Authentication. Click on "Obtain New Tokens" and use your AFS login to get a token. Then select the "Drive Letters" tab and "Add" there a drive letter (the default is E: which is ok) and associate it with "\afs" (the default).

On the terminal server, open the control-panel, select system and click on the "Advanced" tab. There, select "Environment Variables" and add a new var called AFS which should point to the drive letter you have used for AFS.

These two steps you should need only once (well, almost, see below) to set up your environment.

To allow CVS to work, create an empty file in your "home directory" (e.g., C:\Documents and Settings\pfeiffer) called ".cvspass".

Log off after this.

Building SEAL

Once logged in on the terminalserver, you have to restart the AFS Authentication and get a new token. Then do the following in a DOS prompt:

cd c:\Users\SEAL
make_release SEAL_1_5_3

You can watch the progress in SEAL_1_5_3/logs/win32vc71dbg.log.
