Building EMOD source code from CentOS Docker images on Windows host machine¶
These steps walk you through building the EMOD source code from CentOS Docker images on a Windows host. Before following these steps you must meet the prerequisites in Getting started with building EMOD source code from CentOS Docker images. Although these steps are specific to the “dtk-build” image, you can use them for the other images by replacing “dtk-build” with the desired image name, such as “dtk-runtime” or “dtk-sfts”.
Download Docker image to Windows host machine¶
To download Docker image to your Windows host machine type the following at command line prompt:
docker pull docker-production.packages.idmod.org/idm/centos:dtk-build
Run Docker container from Windows host machine¶
To run Docker image from your Windows host machine type the following at command line prompt:
docker run -it -v C:\EMOD:/EMOD docker-production.packages.idmod.org/idm/centos:dtk-build
To see additional information about the options used with the “docker run” command, type “docker run –help” at a command line prompt.
Upon completion you will then see a new command prompt for the Docker image, which in this example is as follows:
To then build the EMOD executable, Eradication.exe, move to the /EMOD directory:
This directories contains the necessary build script and files.
Build binary executable from Docker image running Linux CentOS 7.7 within Windows host machine¶
To build a binary executable you run the “scons” script. For more information about the build script options, type “scons –help” from within the EMOD directory. To specify a specific user name associated with the built binary executable, you can enter a specific user name by setting the “USER” environment variable that the build script uses. For example:
In this example the Generic disease model is built. Type the following at command line prompt:
Upon completion you will see the following line at the end of the build process:
scons: done building targets.
For more information, see Build EMOD from source code.
Verify EMOD binary executable¶
You can verify the successful build of the EMOD binary executable by typing the following at command line prompt:
You should see a response similar to the following:
Intellectual Ventures(R)/EMOD Disease Transmission Kernel 188.8.131.52 Built on Oct 25 2019 by johndoe from master(2d8a9f2) checked in on 2019-04-05 15:49:43 -0700 Supports sim_types: GENERIC.
You can then use this executable for running simulations. For more information, see Run a simulation using the command line.
