Note that if you are working on a computer cluster, you may not need to install BFD and TOOLS. It is likely that there is a public installation already available which everyone can use. Ask your local computer system administrator whether an IceCube
tools/ directory has been installed somewhere on the local cluster.
Since all standards of the DAQ environment installation scripts download BFD and Icecube tools, there is no need for the user to do this by hand. In the event when new Icecube tools and/or BFD updates come along, your flavor of installation script simply needs to be run again. Follow the prompts intelligently.
If you want to download just the tools without the extra configuration from a machine standardization installation, you can rsync directly from the glacier rsyn modules. A module is provided for both Development and Production grade projects.
For the Development tools set (This is large!!)
> /usr/bin/rsync --delete -rlpt rsync://glacier.lbl.gov/DAQ.Dev.Linux-i386/ /usr/local/icecube/tools
For the Production tools set (Only for deployment approved projects)
> /usr/bin/rsync --delete -rlpt rsync://glacier.lbl.gov/DAQ.Prod.Linux-i386/ /usr/local/icecube/tools
Note that there exists a BFD homepage, which is designed as a stand-alone tool, independent of IceCube.
