2009-06-26FC3IntelFedora 11Everything went smoothly, you did a great job, really. There were numerous bugs in earlier versions of SAS (up to 5.x) but those have been mostly ironed out.

2009-07-02SU8.2IntelUbuntu XArch Linux installation will only be a test. I will inform you to what extend it works. I have been working with SAS using ubuntu 8.10 with no problems so far. That is, the problems that I faced were not operating machine specific and were solved during the SAS workshop 2009. The probelems were: *libpng v 1.27 is too old *xmgrace v 6 is too new *gcc compiler v 4.2 is too new good news! *xspec, ftools and sas can be run in the same bash shell on ubuntu 8.10

2009-08-13FC3IntelFC10There is no option for source above.
2009-08-24MAC10.4MAC-IntelMAC10.5.XMac OS X 10.5 is missing from the list of the second question: "which version do you intend to download"
2009-10-14RHEL4IntelCentOS 5.3The documentation for esas (that included with XMM-SAS) is poor, especially the "Parameters" section. For example, it refers to a "Task Merge_comp", which apparently refers to the "merge-comp-xmm" program, "Mosspectra" instead of "mos-spectra", "Rot_Det_Sky" (for "rot-det-sky") but "Rotimdetsky" for "rot-im-det-sky", and so on. This lack of regularity in the naming conventions make it harder to look up things. It would also be useful to have a brief summary of what changed between the standalone version and the version incorporated into XMM-SAS (e.g., the fact that emchain now has to be run separately, instead of being run by mos-filter).
2009-10-15SU8.2IntelSuSE11This is my fourth download of SAS versions to my current PC, running Linux Suse 10.1 SAS 7.0, 7.1, and 8.0 did not give me any problem. I am very grateful for this!
2009-10-22RH9IntelRH9none
2009-11-05SU8.2IntelUbuntu XThere is no info about which software version to choose for download for ubuntu users (red hat?, fedora?, suse?, other?).
2009-11-10SU8.2IntelDebian squeezeWould be even nicer to support builds from source. This is done for HEASOFT and most optical packages (e.g., MIDAS).

2009-12-26MAC10.4MAC-IntelMAC10.5.XOver the years, I have found that you continually improve both SAS and the interface for downloading and installing it on the Macintosh computers I have been using. Thank you for all your efforts.

2010-04-23MAC10.4MAC-IntelMAC10.5.XIn my opinion Ubuntu should be supported in the future since it is used by large community
