Installation instructions and pre-workshop exercises

Install on Windows

The different program are foreseen to run on Linux/Mac. If you don't have Linux or Mac, the best solution is to install Linux (I would advice to install Ubuntu) in dual boot and follow the instructions for Linux. This video might help you to do so: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2369893842637434537 virtual machine are fine, but quite often the library readline is not present on the system. This package is not mandatory but allozs mg5 to have history and nice auto-completions. So you might consider to install that library first and the compile python2.6.

Install on Linux

  • python 2.6/2.7
    MadGraph 5 requires python 2.6 or python 2.7. In order to check your version of python, you can type: python --version. Some of the repositories are still on python 2.5. So if updating python via your repository manager didn't work. you can download directly python from the following link: http://www.python.org/download/ and follow instructions.
  • Madgraph5
    You will find madgraph5 package on the following page: https://launchpad.net/madgraph5. For this program, you just need to untar it. To check if mg5 is correctly install you directly try to run it by doing: ./bin/mg5 If you don't have a valid python version. It will fail directly.
  • MadAnalysis
    This programs is not mandatory but allows to have partonic distributions done automatically. In order to install this program, you need to launch mg5 (./bin/mg5) and then type
       install MadAnalysis
    

Install on MacOs

  1. Basic program
  1. !MadGraph5
    • python
      1. The default python version of MacOs 10.6 is python 2.6 and is (in 99% of the case) fully working with Madgraph5, so nothing to install for you.
      2. The python version of MacOs 10.7 is python 2.7. And this one works perfectly, so nothing to install for you.
      3. For other version of MacOS, you will need to install python2.7 from the python web site: http://www.python.org/download/
