R2D on Linux HPC
« on: October 27, 2023, 03:49:24 PM »

I am interested in running R2D on a Linux machine, and I am wondering if it is possible.
I would appreciate it if you could provide assistance in this regard.

It is possible to run on such a system if you can build both the backend and frontend. I am in the process of builidng a Dockerfile which you could use to see which packages are needed on your system and what the build process is. The Dockerfile uses Ubuntu18.04 as its base. The biggest issue I foresee is getting Qt version 5.15 installed. Failing to install the frontend would mean you could not use the GUI. The backend has a simpler build process and you could run the computational simulations there and possibly view results in python.

timeline for Dockerfile is probably next week (today being the 10/27/2023 for those others looking at this message). The Dockerfile will be in the R2DTool repo on github.

The purpose of the docker images is to run the frontend and backend on one of the TACC Frontera HPC compute nodes.
