This tutorial requires that singularity is installed on the system. We also assumes modulefiles can be used but are not required.

The EIC Software Container

Installing the eic_container is done with the following:

git clone https://eicweb.phy.anl.gov/containers/eic_container.git
mkdir eic_container/build
cd eic_container/build
cmake ../. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/stow/eic_container_1.0.4
make -j4 install

Inspect the list of files installed, noting the locations of modulefiles and wrapper scripts.

Using the container

module use $HOME/etc/modulefiles
module load eic_container

See modulefiles for more info.

Also see environment for more info.

Development within singularity container

See here for more info on singularity.

The following helper runs bash inside eic_container

module load eic_container

For projects that you want to build but which are also inside of the container, you must make sure to set $PATH and $LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the development build's installation prefix first. Here we assume your development builds are being installed into $HOME/stow/development

A simple setup script will make sure things are in order

module use $HOME/etc/modulefiles
module load eic_container
export PATH=$HOME/stow/development/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/stow/development/lib:$HOME/stow/development/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export ROOT_INCLUDE_PATH=$HOME/stow/development/include:$ROOT_INCLUDE_PATH

Detector Library


source setup.sh
module load eic_container
git clone https://eicweb.phy.anl.gov/EIC/NPDet.git
cd NPDet/examples
print_materials gem_tracker_disc.xml 0 0 0 100 0 100

The last line dumps the materials encounter along a line defined by two points.

cd ../..
mkdir NPDet/build && cd NPDet/build
cmake ../. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/stow/development
make -j4 install
cd ../examples
print_materials gem_tracker_disc.xml 0 0 0 100 0 100
