Users with Intel HD4000 integrated graphics, or other similar Intel graphics: Multiple users report hanging/slow response when editing voxels (both Windows & Linux) -- even when using latest graphics drivers. Problem resolves using an Nvidia card.

The scripts call command line utilities in both the Caret (e.g., caret_command) and Freesurfer (e.g., mri_info and mri_convert) software distributions, so both packages must be installed for it to work. The script was tested using Caret Version 5.65 Current Release (27 January 2012) and Freesurfer 5.1 data.

The pipeline scripts run on Apple's Mac OS X (requires Intel processor and OS X 10.5 or later) and Linux. The scripts call command line utilities in both the Caret (e.g., caret_command) and Freesurfer (e.g., mri_convert) software distributions, so both packages must be installed for it to work: Caret-Version 5.614 (April 22, 2010 or later) and freesurfer-Linux-centos4_x86_64-stable-pub-v4.0.1 or later (not tested with Freesurfer 5).

The only messages sent to your email address in the future are to inform you about new releases of Caret, nothing else.

The pipeline distribution is a ZIP file that extracts into a PALS_B12.LR directory containing scripts and supporting files. Please read the README.txt file in the extracted PALS_B12.LR subdirectory.

Platform Notes

Microsoft Windows Notes

Problems have been reported with Windows computers using non-English character sets (particularly Asian languages). The typical symptom is an out of memory message, often when opening a spec file. The only solution at this time is to use an English character set.

Linux Platform Notes

File:LinuxImageCorrupt.jpg

Many Linux installations contain buggy graphics card drivers and OpenGL libraries. It appears that updates, and especially operating system updates, cause problems with existing graphics card drivers and OpenGL libraries. You can update your graphics card drivers and OpenGL libraries by downloading them from the manufacturer of the graphics card. If your Linux system contains the program "glxgears" (probably installed in "/usr/bin"), try running it. If glxgears starts but crashes, you definitely need to update the graphics card drivers and OpenGL libraries.

There is also a version of Caret that is available from an Ubuntu distribution. This version of Caret may have problems reading Caret's older binary file formats and produce an image similar to the one above.

Source Code Notes

For those who download the source code to build caret:

  • We do not provide support for versions of Caret that you compile from source code.
  • We do not provide assistance of any kind for compiling caret or its required libraries from source code.
  • Compiling caret source code, and its required libraries, is a difficult task.
  • Compiling caret source code and its required libraries on Microsoft Windows is nearly impossible.
  • If you still want to compile the source code, see the source code notes.
