Applying The 6.27.2 Patch To Your Existing 6.27[.1] Installation
See the HEASOFT 6.27.2 Release Notes
for more information about this patch.
For users of the source code installation:
A patch installer mechanism is available to aid you in updating your existing
6.27.1 (or 6.27) source code installation. To use it, simply
download the patch installer script
, save it in the directory containing your existing heasoft-6.27.1 (or 6.27) source
code folder, and then run it:
$ sh hdpatch_6.27.2
This script will retrieve the necessary patch file (requires wget),
then rebuilds and re-installs all of the necessary components. It may take
a while to finish, so please be patient while it runs.
For users of a pre-compiled binary installation:
the 6.27.2 binary patch file,
then go to your existing heasoft-6.27.1 (or heasoft-6.27) directory and then into the
architecture specific directory underneath it, for example:
$ cd heasoft-6.27.1/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-libc2.27
Then copy and unpack the patch file here:
$ tar zxvf heasoft-6.27.2binary_patch.tar.gz
The "fversion" task should then report "23Apr2020_V6.27.2".
