Package Checkout

Checking out packages from ATLAS SVN at CERN should work without problems. However, there are a few tricks to avoid needing to type your password all the time, in particular you need to setup your ~/.ssh/config file with the following configuration for svn.cern.ch:

Host svn.cern.ch svn
GSSAPIAuthentication yes
GSSAPIDelegateCredentials yes
PubkeyAuthentication yes
Protocol 2
ForwardX11 no
User graemes  # <--- Replace with your CERN AFS username, if it's different from your PPE unix account name

You will need to add your ssh public key to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on lxplus at CERN.

You should now be able to use cmt co path/package or pkgco.py package and not be prompted for a password (personally, I like pkgco.py better as there is no need to specify the path to the package; see this documentation for the gory details).

All new account/e-mail passwords should be changed immediately after they are issued. To change your PPE account password, type yppasswd at the terminal. You will then be prompted to enter your old password and a new password (twice for confirmation). Choose a secure password (a mixture of upper/lower case letters, numbers and punctuation/symbols) which you can remember.

export ATLAS_LOCAL_ROOT_BASE=/cvmfs/atlas.cern.ch/repo/ATLASLocalRootBase

or this (csh, tcsh):

setenv ATLAS_LOCAL_ROOT_BASE /cvmfs/atlas.cern.ch/repo/ATLASLocalRootBase
alias setupATLAS 'source ${ATLAS_LOCAL_ROOT_BASE}/user/atlasLocalSetup.csh'

(Usually it's best to add these lines to your shell's startup scipts, e.g., .bashrc.)

Then run setupATLAS:

ppepc145:~$ setupATLAS
...Type localSetupAGIS to setup AGIS
...Type localSetupDQ2Client to use DQ2 Client
...Type localSetupEmi to use emi
...Type localSetupFAX to use FAX
...Type localSetupGanga to use Ganga

...Type localSetupMana to setup mana
...Type localSetupPacman to use Pacman
...Type localSetupPandaClient to use Panda Client
...Type localSetupPyAMI to setup pyAMI
...Type localSetupPoD to setup Proof-on-Demand
...Type localSetupROOT to setup (standalone) ROOT
...Type localSetupRucio to setup Rucio
...Type localSetupXRootD to setup XRootD
...Type showVersions to show versions of installed software
...Type asetup to setup a release (changeASetup to change asetup version)
...Type rcSetup to setup an ASG release (changeRCSetup to change rcSetup ver.)
...Type diagnostics for diagnostic tools
...Type helpMe for more help
...Type printMenu to show this menu
