Installing Optional Packages

And managing them using eups.

For example, the DC3 downloadable virtual machines use this approach.

Sun Java

  1. download Sun's .bin-packaged JDK
  2. install it in /lsst/opt/java (execute the .bin package there, and it will install in-place)
  3. create /lsst/opt/java/<version>/ups/java.table and jdk.table, containing:
    envPrepend(PATH, ${PRODUCT_DIR}/bin)
  4. eups declare -c -r /lsst/opt/java/jdk1.6.0_14 java 1.6.0+14 (that is, if your version is 1.6.0_14)
  5. eups declare -c -r /lsst/opt/java/jdk1.6.0_14 jdk 1.6.0+14
