The SemiVivA package of the VistA software as released on the VA's FTP site on August 25, 2005 is now available. To use it, download it to a directory on your PC, e.g., /Distrib/OpenVistA/OpenVistASemiVivAFOIAGold2005.825.tgz. Then, *as root*, execute the following:
tar zxvf /Distrib/OpenVistA/OpenVistASemiVivAFOIAGold2005.825.tgz
Subsequently, for each VistA environment that you want to create, as a normal user with write permissions to the directory where the environment is to be created, execute:
/usr/local/OpenVistA/vista --install <directory>
If <directory> is omitted, or if --install <directory> is omitted, you will be prompted.
Subseqently, to use a previously created VistA environment, execute:
/usr/local/OpenVistA/vista --run <directory>
The script /usr/local/OpenVistA/vista requires that Xdialog (http://xdialog.dyns.net) be installed on your PC.
