There are multiple questions here. RedHat-7.x binary installation : ------------------------------ The binary tarballs (zip and rpm) for Linux had been built on a RedHat-6.1 and clearly there are forward compatibility problems. I have put a note under the OpenScientist download page for a diagnostic and a possible solution. See : http://www.lal.in2p3.fr/OpenScientist/v8/download.html Right now (08/04/2002) I have no RedHat-7.x at hand at LAL to rebuilt at least the .zip file. I will try to look around CERN, I think that there are test machines to help migration from 6.x to 7.x... OpenScientist have so many packages.... -------------------------------------- Right. And this is a global architecture wish. We (it is a LAL computing team point of view, but also for example an LHCb one....) do not want to put everything in one big package, mainly for question of flexibility. We think that this is a crucial aspect, especially for analysis environment where part may be discarded (for exa Objectivity storage...) due to various good reasons (change of technology) or bad ones (no more money !). You must see the packages as the "categories" of Geant4 with the difference that here the package/category are versionned... OpenScientiat, having the pretention to be an interactive environment for doing analysis, must then have at least an histogram package, a plotting package, something to store things, some GUI, some scripting, etc, etc, etc.... Then there are at least one package for each "computing domain". BUT, you must note, than compare to other project around, we do not attempt to rewrite everything and then we rely, as much as possible to code written elsewhere ; for exa HEPVis, Midnight. Oftenly, packages are only CMT repacking of other packages around (KUIP, CINT). Having subpackages permits for example to reuse the fitting (Midnight) elsewhere without most of the rest, reuse CINT elsewhere without the rest, etc... and there is such few instruction for a beginner... --------------------------------------------------- here I agree, documenting a whole analysis system is not a simple task, whatever it is. There are some tutorial for the OnX and Lab packages. They come with some demos and more are going to come in next release, but despite the Doxygen for the classes it is clear that it is not sufficient. Under "OpenScientist and Geant4" there is some explanation if starting to do some AIDA analysis for Geant4. We are working on the AIDA repository to be able to handle a bunch of C++ examples, etc... Here, people must be aware that the user support for all that is at the beginning and that the task is a huge one. The best is to give feedback on obscure/unclear points, we will try to do our best to improve (here I speak for OpenScientist but also for AIDA itself, AIDA in Geant4, etc...). installing from source.... -------------------------- here, I need more feedback to help. The experience shows that 99% of problems with the source installation came from a bad access to "external packages" like Python, OpenGL, freetype, etc... With OpenScientist/v8 you have to take care of the Interfaces/<external package>/cmt/requirements file to parametrize the access to external packages. If that is correctly done and if the external packages are here (oftenly people have not them on their machine !!!) things should be ok (not straightforward but feasable).
