3. Installation of the Hacker Script
------------------------------------
-When the installations of Cadence IC 5.0.33 and Aptivia was successfull, you can enter the Hacker Script installation.
-Make sure you are also logged in as root:
> su -
Password:> (enter the root password here)
-Copy the Hacker Script and data file to the following directory /Cadence/:
> cp /home/thedock/CadenceInstall/Hacker/* /Cadence/IC5033/
-Go into the following directory /Cadence/IC5033
> cd /Cadence/IC5033
-Build symbolic link to the Cadence files (au lieu d'un lien direct):
> ln -s /Cadence/IC5033/tools.lnx86 /Cadence/IC5033/tools
> ln -s /Cadence/VSDE33/tools.lnx86 /Cadence/VSDE33/tools
-Run the Hacker Script:
> ./hacker hacker.script > /dev/tty (be carefull: the second ">" in this line is not a prompt: it is the mathematical symbol)
-Normally, a few errors should occur (5~6), but a lot of files should be scanned and some of their will be modified.



4. Installing Netscape 7.1 for Cadence Documentation viewing
------------------------------------------------------------
-Since I found no solution to use Mozilla for documentation viewing in Cadence, here is the description how to install and configure Netscape for using it to view the Cadence Docimentation
-Open a Console (Konsole)
-Make sure you are also logged in as root:
> su -
Password:> (enter the root password here)
-Goto the following directory /home/thedock/CadenceInstall/Netscape
> cd /home/thedock/CadenceInstall/netscape-i686-pc-linux-gnu-sea/
-Execute the installation script
> ./netscape-installer
-A new window will pop-up: click "Next"
-Continue by clicking "Accept"
-Select "Full" but let the default installation directory (/usr/local/netscape)
-Click "Next" to continue
-Click "Install" to make the Netscape installation
-Click "OK" when installation has completed: now Netscape is installed into /usr/local/netscape/

-Go to the directory in which the RealPlayer RMP is located:
> cd /home/thedock/CadenceInstall/RealPlayer
-Launch the installation of the RealPlayer RPM:
> rpm -i rp8.linux20.libc6.i386.cs2.rpm --nodeps --force
-A new window will open. Click on "Finished"
-Click on "OK"
-Enter you Email, deselect "inform me on updates and events" and click "Next"
-Select you connection speed and click "Finished": RealPlayer is now installed



5. Configuration of the Environement Variables
----------------------------------------------
-After you applied the Hacker Script successfully, you must configure the environement variables
-Now goto your following directory: /home/thedock/
-Edit the .bashrc file: /home/thedock/.bashrc (for bash users only, the others will not be described, but take a look at the end if you are using ksh or compatible)
-Add the environement that follows:
export ACV_ROOT="/Cadence/VSDE33/tools/acv"
export LANG C
PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/netscape:/Cadence:/Cadence/IC5033:/Cadence/IC5033/tools:/Cadence/IC5033/tools/dfII:/Cadence/IC5033/tools/dfII/bin:/Cadence/IC5033/tools/bin:$ACV_ROOT/bin
-If you do not use bash (csh for example), you will need to use following syntax:
setenv ACV_ROOT /Cadence/VSDE33/tools/acv
setenv LANG C
set path = ($path /usr/local/netscape /Cadence /Cadence/tools /Cadence/tools/dfII /Cadence/tools/dfII/bin /Cadence/tools/bin $ACV_ROOT/bin)
-The variables for other shells can also be found in the following directory: /home/thedock/CadenceInstall/InstallCadence_extrafiles/envvariables)
-Reboot you computer
-Open a Console (Konsole for example)
-To start Cadence, type:
> icfb &
-And now, Cadence will start!
-To start the documentation, type:
> cdsdoc &

good luck
