** it's original command "curl -L get.athena-eic.org | bash" need some workaround on ifarm due to ip restriction and singularity version. see the following
** log into ifarm and create a dir and enter it
*** module load singularity/3.9.5
*** curl  https://eicweb.phy.anl.gov/containers/eic_container/-/raw/master/install.sh | bash (create the script)
*** ./eic-shell (now you should enter its container and can follow the tutorial)
** note the script use latest installation on /cvmfs and you can't do upgrade

note about Geometry and GEANT4 from Maurik Holtrop (June 2011) [5]

Virtual Monte Carlo Run geant4 with TGeo

Virual Geometry Model used by VMC to convert TGeo to geant4 geo

VecGeom [6][7] replacing TGeo and Geant4 geo with MUCH better performance, support since geant4.10, planned adoption in Root, keep backward compatible with Tgeo, refer its webpage and [8] [9][10]

  • Zhiwen's DD4hep test installation on ifarm in the following steps
    • cd /group/solid/gitanl
    • install eic_container by "module load singularity/3.5.3","setenv PATH /apps/cmake/bin/:{$PATH}" and follow container instruction
    • source /group/solid/gitanl/setup.csh (assume your default shell is tcsh)
    • enter container by "container_dev" (somehow graphic is not working in this container, maybe due to X11 forwarding when running on ifarm)
    • "source run.sh" inside container (default shell in container is bash and default installation location is /group/solid/gitanl/development), every step below is inside container
    • mkdir -p /group/solid/gitanl/EIC/tutorials && cd /group/solid/gitanl/EIC/tutorials
    • get and test tutorial "git clone https://eicweb.phy.anl.gov/EIC/tutorials/tutorial_part1.git"
    • cd /group/solid/gitanl/EIC
    • get and test NPDet "git clone https://eicweb.phy.anl.gov/EIC/NPDet.git"
      • cd NPDet && mkdir build && cd build
      • cmake ../. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/group/solid/gitanl/development
      • make -j4
      • make install
      • cd /group/solid/gitanl/EIC/NPDet/src/ConceptDetectors/solid/compact
      • scripts/run_example solid_sidis.xml
  • Using the ARIEL container on ifarm The below directions are general walkthrough to setting up art inside the ARIEL container on ifarm in a way to allow you to add your own modules.
    • Log into ifarm
    • Create a directory structure in a convenient location: mkdir -p my-dir/{build,sources,output}
    • Setup the output directory: cd ~/my-dir/build && ln -s ../output output
    • Start the singularity container: module load singularity && /group/solid/apps/ARIEL.sif
    • Copy the entire workbook to your sources directory: cd ~/my-dir/sources && cp -r $ARIEL/workbook/ .
    • Load the workbook (sets environment vars, etc): module load workbook
    • Configure for building: cd ../build && cmake ../sources
    • Build the workbook modules: make -jN (N = number of cores)
    • Test the build by running one of the examples: art -c fcl/FirstModule/first.fcl
    • To add your own module to art, we write the cpp code and fHiCL file (if needed). From here there are two steps:
      • Place the new code and configuration fHiCL file(s) in their own directory located in ~/sources/art-workbook
      • Update the ~/sources/art-workbook/CMakeLists.txt file to find your new module by adding the line: add_subdirectory(MyNewModule), where MyNewModule is the name of your directory (choose a name that pairs well with your module name)
    • Re-compile the workbook modules: cd ~/my-dir/build && cmake ../sources && make -jN
    • Test your new module by running art with your new fHiCL file: art -c fcl/MyNewModule/myNewModule.fcl
