Go back to Building CIAO from Source with pre-built OTS page

CIAO depends on a number of external software components we refer to as OTS (off-the-shelf) software. it is highly beneficial (and will save you a lot of headaches) to build CIAO with our OTS binaries. If you do wish to build CIAO completely from source, contact the CXC Helpdesk.
