10<h3>5.1 Installation of new / other versions</h3>
11<p>The PALM&nbsp;group announces code revisions by emails send to the
12PALM mailing list. If you like to be put on this list, just send an
13email to <a href="mailto:raasch@muk.uni-hannover.de">raasch@muk.uni-hannover.de</a>. Details about new releases can be found in the
14<a href="../tec/technical_documentation.html">technical/numerical
15documentation</a>. Users can easily make version updates by changing into
16the working directory<span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">
17~/palm/current_version
18</span>and executing<span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;"></span></p><p style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">svn update</span></p><p><span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;"></span>This updates all files in the PALM working copy in subdirectory<span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;"> trunk</span>. The update may fail due&nbsp;the&nbsp;<span style="font-weight: bold;">subversion</span> rules, if you have modified the contents of<span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;"> trunk</span>. In case of any conflicts, please refer to the <span style="font-weight: bold;">subversion</span> documentation on how to remove them.&nbsp;In order to avoid such conflicts, modifications of the default PALM code should be omitted and
19be restricted to the user-interface only
20(see <a href="chapter_3.5.html">chapter
213.5</a>).</p>
22<ul style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">
23</ul>
24
25<p>Alternatively, you can install new or other releases in a different directory, eg.</p><p style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">mkdir ~/palm/release-3.1c</span><br style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;"><span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">cd ~/palm/release-3.1c</span><br style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;"><span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">svn checkout --username &lt;your username&gt; svn://130.75.105.45:palm/tags/release-3.1c trunk</span></p>
26<p>However, this would require to carry out again the complete
27installation process described in chapter 5.0. So far, differet
28versions of PALM cannot be used at the same time.</p><p>After updating the working copy, please check for any differences between your current configuration file (<span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">.mrun.config</span>) and the default configuration file under<span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;"> trunk/SCRIPTS/.mrun.config.default </span>and adjust your current file, if neccessary.</p><p>The scripts and the pre-compiled code must then be updated
29via</p><div style="margin-left: 40px; font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">mbuild -u -h lcmuk<br>mbuild -u -h ibmh<br>mbuild -h ibmh</div><p>or via</p>
30<ul style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">
31</ul>
32
33<blockquote style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">mbuild -u<br>mbuild</blockquote>
34<p>on all remote hosts listed in the configuration file<span style="font-family: Courier New,Courier,monospace;">
35.mrun.config</span>. </p>
36<p>As a last step, a suitable test run should be carried out. It should
37be carefully examined whether and how the results created by the new
38version differ from those of the old version. Possible discrepancies
39which go beyond the ones announced in the <a href="../tec/technical_documentation.html">technical/numerical
40documentation</a>
41should be communicated as soon as possible to the PALM group.
