Home Page of STAR EPICS VM environment
STAR EPICS VM environment is a Virtual Environment with EPICS pre-installed. The intent
is for the member of STAR collaboration to start
using EPICS in day one for a number of reasons. In particular, it is intended for
research students here at Creighton University working for the STAR control. However,
since it's there, and it appears that there are demand for something like this, I keep
maintaining it, release it for the rest of the EPICS community.
I currently have three different versions of VM available:
32-bit Scientific Linux 5.8
32-bit Scientific Linux 6.6
64-bit Scientific Linux 6.7
64-bit Scientific Linux 7.4
Scientific Linux 5.8 based one will likely remain frozen. As I write this, I'm not 100%
sure if I will keep both 32-bit and 64-bit version of Scientific Linux 6. I may, I may not.
If anything, it is likely that I will freeze 32-bit version and keep 64-bit version as the
recommended version. For now, I will support version 6 in 64-bit, but will likely to focus
the development to version7 from here on (as of March 2018), as it seems where the world
is heading to.
Version 5 and 6 both uses EPICS Base 3.14. The new version, version 7, now uses EPICS
Base 7.0 (which is the combination of EPICS Base 3.16 and v4).
