Local Computing

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

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.

New users should contact Shane Kelly by e-mail (room 238, s.kelly@gla.ac.uk) in order to be placed on the PPE mailing list.

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.

Athena Releases at Glasgow

Glasgow PPE machines have CVMFS (CERN Virtual Machine File System) installed on them, which allows very efficient access to all current ATLAS releases. Access to releases (and other useful ATLAS software) is done with the setupATLAS command, itself hosted on CVMFS.

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

Current Atlas Release: v14


Setting up v14 Locally

Follow the instructions in the link below to setup up v14 Locally (this might not work with SL5 machines).

Release 14.2.25.5
