Acquiring and Installing GENESIS

By A. System Requirements


GENESIS and its graphical front-end XODUS are written in C and run on SUN (SunOS 4 or Solaris 2), DECstation (Ultrix), Silicon Graphics (Irix 4.0.1 and up) or x86 PC (Linux or FreeBSD) machines with X-windows (versions X11R4, X11R5, and X11R6). IBM RS6000s (AIX), HPs (HPUX), DEC Alphas (OSF v2 and v3) and the Cray T3D have been successful in compiling and running, although our experience is limited. We welcome feedback on experiences with these platforms. Other platforms may be capable of running GENESIS, but the software has not been tested by Caltech outside of these environments. Although GENESIS may be ported to the Windows95 and NT operating systems at some time in the future, we currently recommend using the freely available Linux operating system for running GENESIS on a PC. A.2 Using the CD-ROM The CD-ROM included with this book contains the complete GENESIS version 2.1 distribution, which includes full source code and documentation for both GENESIS and XO-DUS, as well as the tutorial simulations described in this book. The CD-ROM also contains parallel GENESIS (PGENESIS) and a number of additional packages related to GENESIS that are usually available separately or via the World Wide Web. In addition to containing the GENESIS source code, the CD-ROM has precompiled binaries for the most common UNIX platforms. You may run these binaries directly from the CD-ROM. This will be useful if you are interested in trying the tutorials described in the book, or in evaluating th
