Building the entire system
Building the entire software system
According to notes left from Tim Madden, a multi-stage make is required to build the .munch files for the IOCs. Munch files are raw binary executable for the MVME5500 generated by a cross compiler. The cross compiler resides on machine con5, a Sun Solaris machine. If that machine dies, we're probably in deep trouble.
Procedure as found on the dgs repository
- Ssh to con5 on onenet.
- This is a solaris sytem that has the vxWorks cross compilier.
- First you build various libraries of DGS, such as the Sender, board drivers, VME drivers.
- Then you build the whole system to link all the libraries together into a “munch” file, or vxWorks executable code.
On con5 enter the following commands
cd /global/devel/gretTop/9-22 cd dgsDrivers make cd .. cd dgsData make cd .. cd gretVME make cd dgsIoc make
