Maintaining an installation
Keeping up to date with PSDM releases
Since the cctbx.xfel modules do not critically depend on any particular version of pyana, it is generally safe to closely track the latest version of the PSDM software distribution. To upgrade to the current PSDM release,
$ cd /path/to/test/release $ relupgrade ana-current
/path/to/test/release must be substituted for path of the test release. The cctbx.xfel modules should then be rebuilt using
$ scons -c $ scons
It is possible to manually edit
/path/to/test/release/.sit_release to contain
ana-current instead of a particular version number. This ensures that the latest version of the PSDM software distribution is used during each session.
Keeping a developer installation up to date
Given the rapid development of the PHENIX suite, it is recommended to update the sources and rebuild often. Certain changes may require the configure command (or
libtbx.refresh) to be rerun.
$ cd /path/to/cctbx/sources $ ./allsvn update $ cd /path/to/cctbx/build $ make
