Prerequisites for installation
Either an Ubuntu or CentOS Linux system capable of running Docker and Samba.
NOTE: FIRMM has been tested with these two operating systems by communicating DICOMs over the same network from a SIEMENS scanner to the FIRMM system using a Samba mount. Basic Samba configuration and installation are included in FIRMM installation. Automatic Docker install and configuration only included for Ubuntu 14 through Ubuntu 17 and Redhat 7 systems. If you have a different operating system, simply install Docker separately before installing FIRMM.
Log in or
ssh -X to your Linux machine of choice (Ubuntu 14+ or Redhat 7+ recommended).
Get FIRMM's installation package by either of the following two methods:
1. Web browser method
Point your browser to the NITRC page for FIRMM, click "Downloads" on the left-hand menu and download the "offline install package" zip file for the release of your choice. Make a new directory and move the .zip file there. Example:
cd ~/Downloads mkdir firmm mv firmm-v3.0.7_offline_install_package.zip firmm/
Change to the directory where you moved the .zip file and unzip it. Example:
cd firmm unzip firmm-v3.0.7_offline_install_package.zip
Make a new directory and use
wget to grab the install package from there. Example:
cd ~ mkdir firmm cd firmm wget http://firmm.projects.nitrc.org/firmm-v3.0.7_offline_install_package.zip
Unzip the file. Example:
There are two different ways to run the install file depending on your distribution.
su root ./FIRMM_install.sh
The installation script will detect whether Docker and Samba are installed and install them if needed. Alternatively, the user can install Docker and Samba first, then run FIRMM_install.sh.
