Bugs: CIAO installed using conda


Bugs

List of known packages CIAO is incompatible with

  • CIAO and StSCI's astroconda which fail due to version incompatibilities in the CFITSIO library.
  • There is a conflict between CIAO and HEASARC's XSPEC package. Users must
    1. First, initialize their HEASARC environment

      $ export HEADAS=/soft/lheasoft/headas/x86_64-pc-linux 
      $ source $HEADAS/headas-init.sh
      
    2. Then activate their CIAO environment

      $ conda activate ciao
      
    3. Finally, users have to restore the HEADAS environment variable back to it's original value

      $ export HEADAS=/soft/lheasoft/headas/x86_64-pc-linux 
      

    Note: this may cause problems using XSpec models in sherpa. Users must not source the headas-init.sh script after activating the CIAO environment as it will cause incompatibilities in the suite of parameters tools: pset, pget, and plist.
