Local Computing

All new users will have access to a home directory on the ppe system, of the form /home/"username".

NB - All new account/email 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). Be sure to choose a password that is reasonably secure (mixture of upper/lower case letters, numbers and punctuation/symbols) and which you can remember.

It is possible to run Athena - the Atlas computing framework - locally from this home area.

Below are instructions on setting up locally, so that one might run an Athena job from a Glasgow desktop.

N.B We will endevour to keep this page up to date with recent Atlas software releases.

Current Atlas Release: v14
