Slide 6 of 27
Before running Mosflm, the user needs to have access to oscillation images and a copy of the program which will run on their computer. Pre-compiled binaries which will run “out-of-the-box” are available from our web- and ftp sites, and a “build-it-yourself” version is also available. Full installation details are included with the downloads.
The computer itself must be UNIX based (but a version of Mosflm which will run under Windows is under development) and have at least 32Mb RAM and 128 Mb swap space available. A screen resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels is useful (otherwise a small-screen version can be used).
Many experimental details are written to image headers, and Mosflm can read and use this information. All values supplied in the headers can be over-ridden by the user during processing. Further, Mosflm will determine suitable processing parameters based on analysis of the images during the processing itself, e.g. integration box dimensions.
