Gemini IRAF VM tutorial

Instructions for running Astroconda IRAF under a 32-bit virtual machine on MacOS 10.15 or later.

These instructions are for use with Virtual Box. You may prefer to import the provided OVA file into some other virtualization software, in which case you will have to determine how to adapt the following installation and start up steps accordingly.

An alternative to using Gemini’s VM image as described here is to set up your own virtual machine (including 32-bit OS libraries) and install the Astroconda packages for Python 2 on it. This is reportedly easy to do using Parallels (for a fee).
