EPICS Installations @ GSI: Directory Setups

Here you can find a sketch of how the directories are related with each other

  • Nomenclature
  file
  link to a file
  directory
  link to a directory

  • /usr/local/bin
    • contains (soft) links to <GSI's EPICS Installation Top Directory>/bin/
      • where at the moment:
        • <GSI's EPICS Installation Top Directory> is ~epics
      • but will be:
        • /usr/local/pub
    • linked files
      • epics

  • <GSI's EPICS Installation Top Directory>
  <GSI's EPICS Installation Top Directory>
  bin/
  epics
  epicslogin.sh
  fcn_addtopath.bash
  uniqpaths
  EPICS-<Version A.BB.CC>[_<optional Suffix>] (old structure, supported until new structure has established)
  ...
  EPICS-<Version X.YY.ZZ> (old structure, supported until new structure has established)
  EPICS
  ${GSI_OS_FLAVOR}${GSI_OS_VERSION}/$(uname -m)/${GSI_COMPILER_CC}
  (same sub structure as for EPICS directory in the local installation, see below)

  • <All local EPICS top directory>
  <All local EPICS top directory>
  .profile / .bashrc
  ( could contain settings for EPICS_LOCAL_... settings for epics script:
  EPICS_LOCAL_HOME_DIR=EPICS/${GSI_OS_FLAVOR}$(echo ${GSI_OS_VERSION?undefined}| sed -e 's/\(.\..\)\../\1/g')/$(uname -m)/${GSI_COMPILER_CC} )
  bin
  (should be included in the lookup path PATH)
  epics
  (recommended to be a (soft) link to <GSI's EPICS Installation Top Directory>/bin)
  epicslogin.sh
  (recommended to be a (soft) link to <GSI's EPICS Installation Top Directory>/bin)

  ${GSI_OS_FLAVOR}${GSI_OS_VERSION}/$(uname -m)/${GSI_COMPILER_CC}
  bin
  (should be included in the lookup path PATH)
  lib
  (if necessary should be included in the lookup e.g. path LD_LIBRARY_PATH)
  include
  <Installation directory 1> (e.g. axis, missing libraries, tweaks)
  ...
  <Installation directory N>
  EPICS
  ${GSI_OS_FLAVOR}$(echo ${GSI_OS_VERSION?undefined}| sed -e 's/\(.\..\)\../\1/g')/$(uname -m)/${GSI_COMPILER_CC}
  EPICS-<Version A.BB.CC>[_<optional Suffix>][_dev]
  (w/  suffix: _dev: development versions, place for first installation of new/changed code, may not be working)
  (w/o suffix: _dev: production versions, only changed, if changes work in _dev)
  ...
  EPICS-<Version X.YY.ZZ>
  myepicslogin.sh
  (This setup file myepicslogin.sh is the only recommended place to change/tweak/modify settings for this local installation)
  <other setup files> (optional: called by myepicslogin.sh)
  epicslogin.sh
  (recommended to be a (soft) link to <All local EPICS top directory>/bin)
  fcn_addtopath.bash
  (recommended to be a (soft) link to <All local EPICS top directory>/bin)
