Simplified EUTelescope installation and introducing new ILCSoft release

Dear colleagues,

just this week ILCsoft announced a new release of their software package: v01-17-01. We took this opportunity to better integrate the EUTelescope installation into the ilcinstall-scripts - now all you need for a fresh EUTelescope installation is a checkout of the ilcinstall-tools and a single command to trigger the installation procedure! No more platform-depended instructions and no more fiddling around with config files!

With ILCSoft v1.17.1 EUTelescope now runs smoothly under Ubuntu 13.04 and Scientific Linux 6.4 - but please keep in mind that the best-tested platforms are still Ubuntu 12.04 and SL5.8.

Furthermore, the new Marlin version in v1.17.1 offers a nice feature: using "Marlin -u old.xml new.xml" you can easily 'update' your steering files to reflect any changes in a processor's parameters - including the descriptions and optional parameters! This should allow a much smoother migration of your existing analyzes to newer EUTelescope versions.

You can find the new installation instructions at the usual place:
and some additional information on how to update steering files at:

Let us know if you encounter any issues!

test jobsum

there seem to be mistake in the examples
e.g. in the line
$EUTELESCOPE/jobsub/ --config=${ANALYSIS_CONF}/config.cfg \
-csv ${ANALYSIS_CONF}/table_orgmode.csv clustering 97

There is no file 'table_orgmode.csv' in the directory. Instead there is a file 'runlist.csv'

Re: jobsub example

thanks for notifying us! These lines were left over from the previous example - I've just fixed it in the documentation!

I was waiting for this simplified EUTelescope installation guide to get released. The first article about the installation seemed a little complicated to me but I am really happy to see simple instructions here. It was nice to know about ILCSoft and its release.
