Install IRAF For MOSFIRE DRP

I am attempting to install iraf on Ubuntu 12.10 within a virtual environment. This is an attempt to simplify the installation requirements for the MOSFIRE data reduction pipeline.

Steps:

  1. Downloaded ubuntu desktop file (ubuntu-12.10-desktop-i386.iso).

  2. Installed on a 6 GB virtualbox disk. Drive was partitioned with 5.5 GB to data and 0.5 GB to swap.

  3. Downloaded iraf.lnux.x86.tar.gz from iraf.noao.edu. This is v2.16 of iraf.

  4. Added user iraf

  5. Installed tcsh

  6. Changed iraf's shell to /bin/tcsh; added setenv iraf /iraf/iraf to .cshrc

  7. As user iraf:
    1. cd $iraf/unix/hlib
    2. source irafuser.csh
    3. sudo ./install
  8. Complete
