The supported local installation is done with Spack
Spack is a package management tool designed to support multiple versions and configurations of software on a wide variety of platforms and environments. It was designed for large supercomputing centers but can also be used by a regular users.
Spack installation allows to install ATHENA stack natively on your system (as much as possible). It is easier to work with in terms of IDEs, OpenGL (Geant4 event display), debugging, etc. The downside of this is that it requires of compilation of lots of packages, which takes time (hours) and is prone to errors depending on your system. If setup fails, it require some spack-kung-foo to debug and recover the installation. Thus:
THIS TYPE OF INSTALLATION IS CONSIDERED FOR EXPERTS. DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK.
To install Spack and EIC-Spack repository it is recommended to use master branch of spack as several of issues we submitted are not yet on any tag.
git clone https://github.com/spack/spack.git . spack/share/spack/setup-env.sh # Add this to your e.g. ~/.bashrc git clone https://github.com/eic/eic-spack.git spack repo add eic-spack
Create environment file athena.yaml with the next content:
