     8
     9In order to be efficient during the time of the school, we would like to ask you to install all the software packages that you will need during the school in advance.
     10If you have any difficulties, please contact Olivier Mattelaer at the following address: olivier.mattelaer@uclouvain.be .
     11
     12 === Windows ===
     13The 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.
     14This video might help you to do so: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2369893842637434537
     15
     16 === Linux ===
     17
     181. '''Basic program'''
     19  * perl
     20  * bash
     21  * gfortran 4.x (To check the version do gfortran do: gfortran --version)
     22  Those programs are by default present in any linux distribution,
     23  but just in case you should check that they are all installed in your computer. If they are not,
     24  you can use apt-get/yum/... in order to have those.
     25
     262. '''Madgraph 5'''
     27  * '''python 2.6/2.7'''[[BR]]
     28    !MadGraph 5 requires python 2.6 or python 2.7. In order to check your version of python, you can type:
     29    python --version. Some of the repositories are still on python 2.5. So if updating python via your repository manager didn't work.
     30    you can download directly python from the following link:
     31    http://www.python.org/download/
     32    and follow instructions.
     33  * '''Madgraph5'''[[BR]]
     34    You will find madgraph5 package on the following page:  https://launchpad.net/madgraph5.
     35    For this program, you just need to untar it.
     36    To check if mg5 is correctly install you directly try to run it by doing:
     37    ./bin/mg5
     38    If you don't have a valid python version. It will fail directly.
     39  * '''Root''' [[BR]]
     40    Root is require, in order to make some of the plots in !MadEvent.
     41    Except if you are in SLC4 or SLC5 distribution, you will need to install root from scratch on your computer.
     42    The current last verstion of Root is 5.30, which you can download from here: ftp://root.cern.ch/root/root_v5.30.02.source.tar.gz
     43    After Un-packing, follow the instruction of the file README/INSTALL.
     44    Finally you should edit the file ~/.bashrc, by adding the following line into it
     45{{{
     46    export ROOTSYS=PATH_TO_YOUR_UNPACK_DIRECTORY
     47    export PATH=$PATH:$ROOTSYS:$ROOTSYS/bin
     48}}}
     49
     50
     513. '''Pythia/pgs/MadAnalysis'''
     52   In order to install those programs, you need to launch mg5 (./bin/mg5) and then type
     53{{{
     54   install pythia-pgs
     55   install MadAnalysis
     56}}}
     57
     584. '''!FeynRules'''
     59   * '''Mathematica'''
     60     This program is NOT free, But your university as certainly a possibility to have a license for you. So please contact your IT team.

     63
     645. '''MC@NLO'''
     65   * '''g77 '''[[BR]]
     66     It might occur that you already have it on your computer. Otherwise, you can downloaded it from http://www.tucows.com/preview/8001/GCC-G77 (not all repository maintained g77 anymore)
     67   * '''MC@NLO'''[[BR]]
     68     You can install it from the source: https://server06.fynu.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/attachment/wiki/SchoolKias/MCatNLO.tgz

     99    b. The python version of !MacOs 10.7 is python 2.7. We never test this python version with MG5 but in principle it should be fine.
