Status and Availability

The code is installed at CERN on the ION Work Group Server. The ALICE environment is automatically setup at login time, so users can immediately start using the code. Both a HP-UX and a Linux versions are installed.

All the code and the related material is available in the directory pointed by the variable $ALICE_ROOT. The AliRoot package needs the few packages and routines from the CERN Library. These are contained in a reduced subset of the CERN Library available from the ALICE distribution.

Users who do not have access to afs or who want to have a local installation of the ALICE software should install the code locally according to the procedure described in the next chapter.

As of writing the code has been tested on HP-UX 10.2, RedHat Linux 5 and 6, DEC OSF and Solaris. Porting to other platforms and compilers will take place.
