CS-Studio runs pretty well on machine with at least 4 GBytes. If it must be run from inside the ESS DM, at least 8 GBytes are necessary, allocating 4 for the DM.
Note: the following instuctions are deprecated for the Development Machine 3.0.0 and newer. The supported method to update CS-Studio is described here.
css-update.sh is a linux script that will make easy update CS-Studio to a specific version. Download it into your home directory, then execute the following commands:
sudo mv ~/css-update.sh /usr/bin/css-update
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/css-update
Now you can use it in the following manner: css-update [-d] <version>, where
-d will take updates from the development repository,
<version> is the version you want to be updated to.
will move /opt/cs-studio folder into /opt/cs-studio-<old-version>,
will download the requested version and extract it into a temporary folder,
will move the extracted version into /opt/cs-studio.
Example: css-update -d 188.8.131.52 will download the development version of CS–Studio 184.108.40.206 and install it into /opt so next time the css command will be run the new version of CS-Studio will startin the DM is described here.
