9This is the Version 3.01 of the ALICE simulation and reconstruction
10software. This code will be released after the May ALICE Offline
11Meeting. It is intended to offer a general purpose framework for ALICE
12simulation and reconstruction. The program should not be considered
13complete, and we are relying on the feed-back from users to correct bugs
14and provide improvements.
15
16The simulation program is based on GEANT3.21. A special version of the
17GEANT library and a mini-CERN Library are needed to run this code.

19Installation
20------------
21
22- Install ROOT and define the ROOTSYS symbol correctly.
23
24- Decide in which directory you will install the ALICE sofware. We will
25indicate it with <directory>
26
27- Define the following global variables in the login script
28
29ALICE = <directory>
30ALICE_LEVEL = pro
31ALICE_ROOT = $ALICE/$ALICE_LEVEL
32ALICE_TARGET = `uname`
33LD_LIBRARY_PATH = $LD_LIBRARY_PATH\:$ALICE_ROOT/lib (on all systems)
34SHLIB_PATH = $SHLIB_PATH\:$ALICE_ROOT/lib (on hpux)
35PATH = $PATH\:$ALICE_ROOT/bin
36
37At this point you should logout, login again and check that the symbols are
38set correctly
39
40- Get the file /afs/cern.ch/alice/offline/AliOffline3.01.tar.gz
41
42- Unpack it with
43
44$ cd $ALICE
45$ gtar xvfz AliOffline3.01.tar.gz
46
47- install the CERN library part
48
49$ cd $ALICE_ROOT
50$ gmake cernlibs
51
52- Install the ALICE specific software
53
54$ cd $ALICE_ROOT
55$ gmake
56
57- Copy the file $ALICE_ROOT/.rootrc to your home directory
58
59- run the code
