Everything works very well till the step
./install. The following are the code I'm seeing on my screen:
young_kindaichi@LAPTOP-K91A53NB:~$ sudo -i [sudo] password for young_kindaichi: root@LAPTOP-K91A53NB:~# ls iraf-2.16.1-2018.11.01 v2.16.1+2018.11.01.tar.gz root@LAPTOP-K91A53NB:~# cd iraf-2.16.1-2018.11.01 root@LAPTOP-K91A53NB:~/iraf-2.16.1-2018.11.01# ls COPYRIGHT Makefile README.md dev extern install local mkpkg pkg test util INSTALL.md README.contents RELEASE.md doc include lib math noao sys unix vendor root@LAPTOP-K91A53NB:~/iraf-2.16.1-2018.11.01# ./install
which leads me to:
As per the guide, It says
The script will prompt you for the path to the default image directory, the cache directory and the binary files directory. Usually, you can everywhere use the default settings when asked from the install script. You will need to include the binary files directory in your PATH before proceeding to the step. In BASH this can be done with the command:
I do not understand this, And I don't what to do now. Please consider that It's the first time I'm using Linux and I don't have any basic knowledge. So please help me.
On a suggestion, I downloaded the package at
As given in the manual that is "The script will prompt you for the path to the default image directory, the cache directory, and the binary files directory. Usually, you can everywhere use the default settings when asked from the install script".
I used the following code:
Default root image storage directory (/home/young_kindaichi/.iraf/imdir): <CD> *** The definition of imdir cannot be the same as the iraf *** root, please choose a different directory. Ideally this *** should be some large data area on your system or a user *** data area such as /home, /users, /u1, etc. Default root image storage directory (/home/young_kindaichi/.iraf/imdir):
The problem is as I can understood it's not taking default settings.
