1.5. Prep for Bootcamp¶
Get the most uptodate AFNI on your computer.
IF you do not have AFNI set up on your computer system at all, then please see the step-by-step instructions (which optionally include installing the Bootcamp data, so then you will be all set):
for Ubuntu Linux:
for other Linux:
for Mac OS X:
for Windows 10:
for other Windows users… eek.
Methods for checking/evaluating each setup are also described on those pages. PLEASE make sure you have verified that all is well with AFNI on your computer.
ELSE (you have AFNI set up on your computer, but you are not certain that it is the most up-to-date version), please do the following:
if you have installed pre-compiled binaries on your computer (the most common approach):
if you compile AFNI from source, then go here and download the latest source.
curl -O https://afni.nimh.nih.gov/pub/dist/edu/data/CD.tgz tar xvzf CD.tgz cd CD tcsh s2.cp.files . ~ cd ..
Purpose: Download the Bootcamp class data; untar+unzip it (= open it up); move into the newly opened directory; execute a script to copy the files to
$HOME/..If no errors occur in the above, and your
afni_system_check.pysays things are OK, you can delete/remove the tarred/zipped package, using “
rm CD.tgz”. If you are really confident, you can also deleted the CD/ directory in the present location.
- !Pro tip!: Bring a computer mouse to use at the Bootcamp. It is muuuuch easier to follow the demos that way.
Read+practice with the handy Unix documentation/tutorial.
Purpose: give you a quick lesson/refresher on using basic Linux shell commands (e.g., ls, cd, less, etc.). It will greatly enhance your bootcamp experience– we promise!
EVALUATE THE SETUP: an important and useful step in this process!
Open a new terminal, and then copy+paste:
- Read the “Please Fix” section at the end. If there are no suggestions, then rejoice! Otherwise, try the suggestion(s) there.
Open up the AFNI and SUMA GUIs, juuuust to make sure all is well:
Report any crashes or problems!
If stuck, then …
try searching online with the error message, and/or ask on the Message Board
send the system check to an AFNI guru for advice—copy+paste:
afni_system_check.py -check_all > out.ASC.txt
... and email the file “out.ASC.txt”.
