Topspin Software Updates

Typical Software Update for a new Patch Level

This is typically done by Dean Waldow or Matthew Hacker as root password is needed.

  • Shutdown Topspin
  • Insert CDROM
  • (You may need to double click on the "install' file)
  • Provide "root" password when asked
  • You will be asked which kind of update do you want to do. You will need to distinguish between an update for the instrument or a data station. Select the appropriate one and continue.
  • Usually all default answers are typical (uinstall takes about 10-20 minutes)
  • After it finishes, you will need to do one of the following:
    • Instrument: issue a CF and then a EXPINSTALL (all defaults usually)
    • Data Station: issue only the EXPINSTALL (all defaults usually)
  • Quit Topspin and restart it
  • You should be ready to run again
  • Typically test with a BACS run for a basic proton scan on sample 1
