Introduction

NCAR In-Situ Data Acquisition Software

How to Build and Install NIDAS for ARM and Intel Systems

Building NIDAS requires the the gcc and g++ compilers, the flex parser, and the scons build tool.

NIDAS uses various other software, such as xerces-c, xmlrpc++, bluez for bluetooth, and the Linux kernel headers for building kernel modules

On RedHat systems, yum install the nidas-build package from the EOL repository before building nidas. Installing that package will ensure that your development system has the required software to do a build.

How to Build and Install NIDAS for All Supported Hosts

Setting install destination with PREFIX

The value of PREFIX defaults to /opt/nidas. It can be changed with a scons runstring variable:

How to Build NIDAS for ARM

On RedHat systems, yum install the nidas-ael package from the EOL repository. Installing that package will ensure that your development system has the required software to do a build for ARM systems.

Then make sure arm-linux-g++, and the other arm tools are available and in your path. For example:
