This page is no longer maintained. Installation under andLinux using the special andLinux installation script is no longer supported (using the 'standard' installation method should still work). It is possible that the andLinux installation script no longer works for the latest versions of the tooling. Also, some of the information on this page may be out of date. The recommended way to install the tooling is to use a 'real' Linux distribution, possibly inside a virtual machine. See also the Chi/CIF Installation for instructions on how to install the Chi/CIF tooling.
For Windows users, it is possible to use andLinux, “a complete Ubuntu Linux system running seamlessly in Windows 2000 based systems (2000, XP, 2003, Vista; 32-bit versions only).”. This page describes how to use the Chi/CIF tooling on the SE rack systems using andLinux.
The first thing that needs to be done is installing andLinux. Browse to http://www.andlinux.org/downloads.php and download it. The tested version is Beta 1. However, if a newer stable version is available, that should also work. Choose the KDE version and not the minimal/XFCE version. The download is 653 MB. After the download is completed, start the setup program.
The installed version of andLinux (KDE version) requires about 4.5 GB of disc space. Since FAT32 partitions don't support files larger than 2 GB, you should install andLinux on a NTFS partition.
Some notes on the setup process. You may choose any settings you like during installation. The following settings have been tested, and are recommended:
