If you have your own laptop that you would prefer to use during the course, we would kindly ask you to bring it along and inform the course organization committee about it. If possible, please verify the correct functioning of FLUKA and FLAIR already prior to the course start. If you experience problems, please contact us in advance in order to avoid installation and configuration problems during the course. You can find additional information concerning installation, needed libraries, etc. in the FLUKA Discussion Mailing List or the FAQs.

- Download the program
- unpack unzip check_fluka.zip
or tar xzvf check_fluka.tgz

The program will run a few checks and propose solutions in case of problems. If all tests have passed it will create a summary file check_fluka.out that you should send to the course organizing committee to verify that your fluka installation is working properly.
