Starlink Software Collection - Download and Install
The keoe release of the Starlink Software Collection is currently available for two operating systems:
Parties interested in a Solaris release can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The tar file will unzip into a star/ directory in the same directory you downloaded the tar file to. To install this, either copy it into a /star directory or create a /star softlink to this directory.
On some systems you may need the libg2c.so library. On Fedora Core (and presumably all Red Hat-derivative systems) this can be found in the compat-gcc-32 RPM. On Ubuntu (and presumably all Debian-derivative systems) this can be found in the libg2c0 package.
The 64-bit release requires glibc 2.4 and fairly recent versions of the X11 libraries. An up-to-date Gentoo, Fedora Core 5, or SUSE 10.1 are distributions that are known to work.
OS X tarball
The tar file will unzip into a local-star/ directory in the same directory you downloaded the tar file to. To install this, either copy it into a /local-star directory or create a /local-star softlink to this directory.
Even though this build was built on a PPC Mac, it should still run on Intel Macs under Rosetta compatibility mode.
This release was built on OS X 10.4 (Tiger), and may not work on 10.3 (Panther).
If you have not installed the OS X SDK, you will need to install it to obtain the ncurses library. It is located on the Tiger installation DVD, or Disc 1 of your hardware's installation CDs (open the "Xcode Tools" folder, then double-click the "XcodeTools.mpkg" package). This will also install X11, which is needed for the various graphical Starlink programs like GAIA or KAPPA/DISPLAY.
2006-09-12 UPDATE - please download this fix for the NDF Perl module. Untar it, then copy the two files into the /local-star/Perl/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/darwin-2level/auto/NDF/ directory. This fixes the following error:
Can't load '/local-star/Perl/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/darwin-2level/auto/NDF/NDF.bundle' for module NDF: dlopen(/local-star/Perl/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/darwin-2level/auto/NDF/NDF.bundle, 1): Symbol not found: __g95_ioparm Referenced from: /local-star/lib/libndf.0.dylib
To set up your environment for use with the Starlink Software Collection, you must "source" some initialization files. On csh and related shells (like tcsh), source /star/etc/login and /star/etc/cshrc. On sh and related shells (like bash), source /star/etc/profile.
ORAC-DR for WFCAM
Because of the large size of WFCAM calibration files, they have been split off from the main download tarballs, as not everybody will be reducing WFCAM data using ORAC-DR. These calibrations can be downloaded here (372MB .tar.gz). The tar file will unzip into a swfcam/ directory in the same directory you downloaded the tar file to. To install these calibration files, copy the directory into the /star/bin/oracdr/cal/ directory (or /local-star/bin/oracdr/cal/ for OS X) thus creating the /star/bin/oracdr/cal/swfcam/ directory containing the calibration files.
