     806. '''MadAnalysis 5'''
     81In order to install the latest stable version of the MadAnalysis 5 package, a tarball can be downloaded from the website
     82   https://launchpad.net/madanalysis5
     83and be subsequently unpacked by issuing in a shell
     84  mkdir MadAnalysis5
     85  cd MadAnalysis 5
     86  /tar -xvf ma5_xxxx.tgz
     87 where xxxx stands for a version number. MadAnalysis 5 requires several external dependencies in order to properly run:
     88 * Python 2.6 or a more recent version (but not the 3.X series) that can be downloaded from the website
     89         http://www.python.org/
     90This requirement is common with those needed by the MadGraph 5 package.
     91 * The numpy package must be properly installed to. It can be downloaded from
     92        http://www.numpy.org/
     93 * The GNU GCC compiler. Note that MadAnalysis 5 has been validated with the versions 4.3.X and 4.4.X. The GCC compiler can be downloaded from
     94        http://gcc.gnu.org/
     95  * ROOT v5.27 or a more recent version that can be downloaded from http://root.cern.ch/
     96We remind that checking the version of ROOT installed on a system, it is sufficient to type in a shell
     97        root-config --version
     98Moreover, the Python libraries generated by ROOT must be present. To install
     99them, it is necessary to first install the Linux package python-devel on the system. Next, before generating the ROOT makefile, the ROOT configuration script has to be run as
     100         ./configure --enable-python
     101Let us note that the Python version employed when starting MadAnalysis 5 has to be the same as the one used for the compilation of ROOT.
     102
     103To benefit from all options coming with the MadAnalysis 5 program, we also recommend to install Zlib headers and libraries. The latter can be downloaded from
     104    http://zlib.net/
     105Once properly installed, MadAnalysis 5 can be launched by issuing bin/ma5
     106When started, MadAnalysis 5 first checks that all the dependencies (gcc, Python, ROOT, Zlib) are present on the system and that compatibility is ensured with the installed versions. In the case of any problem, a message is printed to the screen and the code exists in the case it cannot properly run. On the first session of MadAnalysis 5, the SampleAnalyzer core is compiled behind the scene as a static library stored in the directory tools/SampleAnalyzer/Lib. For the next sessions, the kernel is only recompiled if the configuration of the system changes (new version of the dependencies or of the main program).
