Subject: EPICS install by Alex 

Alex Ivanov came in on Friday and demonstrated his EPICS kung-fu. His EPICS knig-fu is strong.

We fixed the IP address of the Hartmann machine, renamed it hartmann, and mounted the cvs drives from the frame builder. - including the EPICS base from that machine. In principle, with a new softIoc, this should have been enough to run EPICS on the hartmann machine. However, whilst the softIoc would start, it wouldn't broadcast any channels. Eventually we figured out that this was because of the Windows Virtualization adding another IP address to the hartmann machine (revealed with /sbin/ifconfig). So we removed the virtualization system and then EPICS seemed to broadcast much better.

The minutia of install isshown in the history files for the controls and root users - attached.
