Any of the above packages and all their dependencies can be installed by replacing lsst_sims with the appropriate package name in the above code snippet (e.g. sims_maf).  Installation is now complete.  See package specific pages for documentation.

 

Known issues: 

  • If you have issues with installation, first check that your system meets the minimum requirements listed here: LSST software user guide prerequisites.
  • If you are having issues specifically with pyephem or healpy on a Mac, check for the existence of a /Developer directory. This is obsolete after upgrading to newer versions of XCode, but not removed by the XCode installer. Rename the /Developer directory and pyephem will install. 
  • If you are using your own python, be sure to check the Using Your Own Python page.
  • If you are using your own anaconda python, be sure it is not installed in /anaconda (install somewhere like your home directory instead).  This should be fixed in a new release soon.
  • On a Mac, make sure you have accepted the terms on XCode.  You can do this by opening the Xcode.app (should be in your Applications folder).
  • If all else fails, it's usually an issue with some environment variables interfering with the installation.  You can create a new user  and install the stack there.  You can quickly login/out of a new user account as follows:  First make a new admin-level user in System Preferences->Users and Groups, and then click on your name in the top right hand corner of the screen. A drop-down menu should appear, offering you a choice of other users to log in as. You might have to toggle the check box in System Preferences->Users and Groups->Login Options first though.
