Compiling day

created: 25 Oct 2010 10:15
Some weeks ago, I trade with my girlfriend a brand new Asus eeepc 1005P for my old ibook 12" g4. Why? one word: Windows

I then started to configure the ibook to become my laboratory buddy and, since is a ppc and not an intel, no virtualization was possible. Therefore, I needed to use fink to compile some linux software.

For my little ibook, compile the latest gcc was not a piece of cake: it took 10 hours to have the job done. Meanwhile, I took this photo of the gcc compiling setup, made hoping to avoid fusions :)


The fan was oriented directly on the keyboard and, below the computer, I had this Belkin cooling stand for laptops.


Proudly, I was able to maintain the CPU/GPU/HD/Memory temperatures so low that the ibook fan never went for a spin. Gh!

TINKER tutorials

In the lab, we are finally preparing an internal wiki. Of course, I'm transferring all the contents of Chembytes in the new wiki, which, by the way, it is not public. It is quite a big work because it is based on dokuwiki and the syntax is different from that used by wikidot. The good in all this is that finally I can discuss with other people and great ideas pop out.

One of these, is doing tutorial. I knew was a great thing to have step-by-step tutorials, but I was way too lazy to do it. Anyway, the result is that the first two tutorials for TINKER are online. It takes quite a lot of time to write a tutorial, in particular for TINKER that is not well documented. Or, at least, informations are spread between the manual and the source files. I have to admit that was a bit of fun hunting informations in between lines and lines of Fortran code, but at the end, I think I have improve my knowledge on TINKER. So, hope the tutorial will helpful for you, as they have been for me.

Another collateral effect of my trip into the code, is that I was able to retrieve a full reference list for TINKER, which is also online.
