This page shows how Carat++ can be compiled under a Linux environment. The guide was tested with the following software versions:
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- gcc 5.4.0
- git 2.7.4
- CMake 3.5.1
- Boost 1.63.0
- MKL (Intel composer_xe_2013_sp1)
In this installation guide Ubuntu 16.04 LTS is used.
Carat++ installation was tested also under the following Linux distributions:
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubunut 14.04 LTS
- TODO please add more if you tested it there
The compiler used in this guide is gcc 5.4.0.
Git is used as version control system. It is needed to download the Carat++ source code. Check which version is installed:
If it is not installed yet, install the latest version:
sudo apt-get install git
Get the source code
To get the Carat++ source code navigate to the directory where you want to store the code, e.g.:
Download the code with git. You need to log in wit your LDAP login:
git clone [USERNAME]@126.96.36.199:/repos/carat.git
Create directory for build and libraries
Navigate to the carat root directory, previously downloaded:
Create a directory "build" and a directory "libs":
Install the latest CMake version
sudo apt-get install cmake
It is recommended to use a tool (in this guide ccmake is used) to set all the compiler flags defined in the CMakeLists.txt:
sudo apt-get install ccmake
Get the latest boost library from https://boost.org. Download and unpack it. Copy the unpacked folder with the version number into the "carat/libs" directory.
Intel MKL is a equation solving library, that is strongly recommended to use.
This guide shows a simple Installation without any administrator rights. (Advanced: To use all the features of the intel suite please refer to http://188.8.131.52/trac/wiki/IntelSuite12.1)
- Copy the "license.lic" from smb://dc01/f_users/TEMP/software/intel_suite into ~/software/intel/ into into e.g. ~/software/intel/.
- Copy the Intel Composer package "l_ccompxe_2013_sp1.2.144.tgz" from smb://dc01/f_users/TEMP/software/intel_suite/Intel_Comp14SP1 into e.g. ~/software/intel/.
- Unpack it and execute the "install_GUI.sh".
- Select "Install as current user"
- Select "Chose alternative activation"
- Select "Use a license file"
- Browse to "~/software/intel/license.lic"
- Costumize installation
- Destination Folder: Browse to "~/software/intel/2013/
- Ignore warnings about missing Java and 32bit. To use MKL solver this is not needed.
- After installation you can delete "l_ccompxe_2013_sp1.2.144.tgz" and l_ccompxe_2013_sp1.2.144
First of all it is necessary to set some paths depending on where you stored the carat source and libs.
Navigate to the Carat++ source directory and make a copy of the "cmake_personal_input.template" to "cmake_personal_input.dat".
~/software/carat/src cp cmake_personal_input.template cmake_personal_input.dat
In this file you find the following part with commented lines where you have to set your user defined paths:
#============================== # set directories paths #============================== # BASIC INSTALLATION #set(CARAT_ROOT "C:/carat") #set(LIB_BOOST_INCLUDE_DIR "C:/carat/libs/boost_1_55_0") #set(LIB_BOOST_DIR "C:/carat/libs/boost_1_55_0/boost") #set(LIB_MKL_DIR "C:/Program Files (x86)/Intel/Composer XE 2011 SP1/mkl")
With the paths used in this installation guide the block should look like (don't forget to remove the #):
#============================== # set directories paths #============================== # BASIC INSTALLATION set(CARAT_ROOT "~/software/carat") set(LIB_BOOST_INCLUDE_DIR "~/software/carat/libs/boost_1_63_0") set(LIB_BOOST_DIR "~/software/carat/libs/boost_1_63_0/boost") set(LIB_MKL_DIR "~/software/intel/xe_2013/composer_xe_2013_sp1/mkl")
Set up the project
Navigate to the "build" directory. This is important so that all files are created here:
Use ccmake to set up the project:
Press "c" to configure the project. And set the follwing settings for a very basic installation:
BUILD_EXECUTABLE ON BUILD_NX_PLUG_IN OFF BUILD_RHINO_PLUG_IN_SDK4 OFF BUILD_RHINO_PLUG_IN_SDK5 OFF BUILD_SHARED_LIB OFF BUILD_STATIC_LIB OFF CFD_OPT OFF CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE Release CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX /usr/local ENABLE_CHOLMOD OFF ENABLE_PREC_SOLVER_LIB OFF EXTENSIVE_BENCHMARKS OFF MODULE_DESIGN ON MODULE_FORM_AND_CUT ON MODULE_GUI OFF MODULE_OPTIMIZATION ON MODULE_REPORT ON USE_32bit OFF USE_BOOST_LOGGING OFF USE_COSIMULATION OFF USE_FLANN_64BIT OFF USE_INTEL_COMP OFF USE_MKL ON USE_MPP OFF USE_OPENCASCADE OFF USE_OPENMP OFF USE_TRILINOS OFF
Press "g" to generate.
Still in the "build" directory:
make -j 8
Now you have a compiled version of Carat++ in your build directory. In Run Carat it is explained how to run Carat++.
After each build or at least before a git commit the benchmarks have to be tested. In the "build" directory type:
