Installing medm locally for the Gsi wide installation of Epics.

Here is the description of how I did it:

Before installing medm you have to install the extensionsConfig and extensionsConfigure, depending on which version of base you use. Look at WhyTwoExtensions for more information. Therefore download and unpack extensionsConfig_20040406.tar.gz and extensionsConfigure_20040406.tar.gz to the directory of your choice.

Type: tar -xvzf extensionsConfig_20040406.tar.gz

Now download medm3_0_3.tar.gz and unpack to the same directory you chose for extensionsConfig/ extensionsConfigure files.

Type: tar -xvzf medm3_0_3.tar.gz

Now do the epics login. This must be done everytime you want to use the application. It sets the environment variables
It also adds $EPICS_EXTENSIONS and $EPICS_BASE to your PATH environment variable.

Type . /usr/local/pub/bin/epicslogin (important: leading dot and blank!)

Though the login set these variables, the makefile will not recognise this, because it calls ~extensions/config/CONFIG_EXTENSIONS, which calls ~extensions/config/RELEASE, where EPICS_BASE=/usr/local/iocapps/R3.14.5/support/base/3-14-5-asd1. So you have to change this line to EPICS_BASE=/usr/local/pub/debian3.1/gcc335-13/epics/base.

Now change directory to ~extensions/src/medm and type: make.

You should be able to run medm, but make sure to start the medm you installed just now (and not a previous installation of someone else).

Type: ~/extensions/bin/linux-x86/medm or add this path (~extensions/bin/linux-x86/) to your PATH environment variable above other entries of potential medm installations. Then you can just type "medm" anywhere in the file system.
