Fluka

The installation of FLUKA consists of the following steps:

 

cd $ALICE
mkdir fluka
cd fluka
tar xzf
/fluka.tar.gz
  • Download and compile fluka_vmc (Note that fluka_vmc repository was migrated from https://alisoft.cern.ch to CERN Central SVN Service)

 

cd $ALICE
svn co https://svn.cern.ch/reps/fluka-vmc/trunk fluka_vmc
cd fluka_vmc/source
make

For convenience, add the last two lines to your shell customisation file (.bash_profile, .zshenv, ...).

  • Create a working directory to run aliroot using FLUKA

 

cd $ALICE ROOT/TFluka/scripts
./runflukageo.sh

 

This script creates the directory tmp and inside all the necessary links for data and configuration files and starts aliroot. For the next run it is not necessary to run the script again. The tmp directory can be kept or renamed. The user should run aliroot from inside this directory.
