6This is the Version 3.00 of the ALICE simulation and reconstruction
7software. This code has been released on March 18 after the ALICE Week. It
8is intended to offer a general purpose framework for ALICE simulation and
9reconstruction. The program should not be considered complete, and we are
10relying on the feed-back from users to correct bugs and provide
11improvements.
12
13The simulation program is based on GEANT3.21. A special version of the
14GEANT library and a mini-CERN Library are needed to run this code.

21- Take the file in /afs/cern.ch/alice/offline/AliCernlib.tar.gz and
22unpack it into a directory:
23
24$ cd <topdir>
25$ gtar xvfz AliCernlib.tar.gz
26
27- Edit the login file and assign the name of the directory where the file
28has been unpacked to the variable ALITOP
29
30setenv ALITOP <topdir>
31setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH $LD_LIBRARY_PATH\:$ALITOP/cern/new/lib\:. (on all systems)
32setenv SHLIB_PATH $SHLIB_PATH\:$ALITOP/cern/new/lib (on hpux)
33
34or
35
36export ALITOP=<topdir>
37export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH\:$ALITOP/cern/new/lib\:. (on all systems)
38export SHLIB_PATH=$SHLIB_PATH\:$ALITOP/cern/new/lib (on hpux)
39
40- install the minicernlib:
41
42cd $TOPDIR/cern/new/mkf
43gmake -f Makefile.<mysystem>
44
45where <mysystem> = linux_egcs or linux_gcc or alpha or solaris or
46hpux. Some warning messages will appear during installation. At the end the
47$TOPDIR/cern/new/lib file should contain:
48
49$ ls -1 $TOPDIR/cern/new/lib
50libgeant321.so
51libgxint321.so
52libminicern.so
53
54(where .so is replaced by .sl in case of hpux).
55
56- Take the file in /afs/cern.ch/alice/offline/AliRoot.tar.gz and
57unpack it into a directory that you have created:
58
59$ cd <wherever_you_want>
60$ mkdir AliRoot
61$ cd AliRoot
62$ gtar xvfz ../AliRoot.tar.gz
63
64- install the code
65
66$ gmake -f Makefile.<mysystem> depend
67$ gmake -f Makefile.<mysystem>
68
69- run the code
