Here's what i did (so far):
Install linux in a virtualbox. This is where i want to have my GAMIT installation.
inside ubuntu do the following:
Success. And finally the install script gave these instructions:
also ~/gg needs to be linked the gamit.
You also need to set up the paths in your .cshrc & .bashrc files
Create the gg link in your home directory to the version of
gamit/globk you just installed ? (y/n)
add this to .bashrc:
add this to .cshrc (but replace XYZ with a 3-letter abbrev. for your institute.)
setenv HELP_DIR ~/gg/help/
setenv INSTITUTE XYZ
set path = ($path ~/gg/gamit/bin ~/gg/kf/bin ~/gg/com)
Track still does not work for me. It just says "KILLED". My current theory is that it is due to not enough mem during compile time. Will try to recompile with more memory.
UPDATE: track works after a recompile with more memory to the virtual machine.
I also found these instructions in chinese (use google translate)
One more link.
