1 How to install RSNA TFS (formally known as MIRC) on Ubuntu Linux

  • Download the script
wget http://timphillips.net/RSNA-TFS/install-TFS
  • Make it executable
chmod 777 ./install-TFS
  • Run the script
./install-TFS
  • Point your browser to the machine you just installed it on and RSNA TFS should be up and running.
  • This script will also upgrade a previous "Tim Phillips" installation of RSNA-TFS or RSNA TFA so it can be used again when the RSNA code is updated.

2 Commands to control or upgrde the TFS web service

To start RSNA-TFS (it will start automatically when the machine boots)

start RSNA-TFS

To stop RSNA-TFS:

stop RSNA-TFS

To check if RSNA-TFS is running:

status RSNA-TFS

To restart RSNA-TFS:

restart RSNA-TFS

To upgrade RSNA-TFS with the latest RSNA-TFS code from RSNA (and preserve all your data):

upgrade-RSNA-TFS

3 What the script does (feel free to look at it before you run it)

  • Checks you're running it as root or using sudo.
  • Stops the RSNA-TFS service if its running.
  • Updates the Ubuntu repos if need be.
  • Checks which chipset you're running.
  • (If Oracle / Sun Java 6 isn't already installed)
    • Answers the Java installation questions in advance.
    • Installs Oracle / Sun Java.
  • Downloads the appropriate JAI ImageIO files installs JAI ImageIO.
  • Installs a few other necessary libraries if they're not already installed.
  • Downloads the latest version of RSNA-TFS.
  • Writes an upstart script (so that CTP/RSNA-TFS will be run as a service automatically).
  • Installs RSNA RSNA-TFS.

4 Choosing between Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu Server for a RSNA-TFS install

  • Ubuntu Desktop
    • Easier (very easy) if you're new to Linux.
    • May be very slightly slower but on modern hardware you are unlikely to notice the difference.
  • Ubuntu Server
    • Makes more sense - RSNA-TFS is a web service after all.
    • Will be leaner and faster.
    • Can run on a headless server or virtual machine.
    • TurnkeyLinux is a very good Ubuntu install for this purpose.
