System requirements

PROCHEM-C is available on the following systems :

64 Bit Systems :

  • PCs (AMD 64Bit and Intel EMT64 CPUs) with LINUX 64 Bit
    Running on 64 bit LINUX distributions with kernel 2.6.9 an higer, e.g. Novell/SuSE 10.x 64 bit, RedHat 4 and 5 64 bit, CentOs 4 and 5 64 bit and Debian 4 64 bit on all kinds of PCs (laptops, desktops and high-end PC workstations, same configurations as with LINUX 32 Bit).

32 Bit Systems :

  • PCs (AMD and Intel CPUs) with LINUX 32 Bit
    Our customers use distributions from Novell/SuSE, RedHat, CentOs and DLD on all kinds of PCs from standard desktop systems and laptops up to high-end PC workstations with high performance graphics engines and dual screen configuration.
    Also possible are configurations with 2 dual screen workplaces at one computer.

  • PCs (AMD and Intel CPUs) with Windows NT4.0 or Windows 2000
    Additionally needed software for Windows systems :
    • UNIX shell environment, e.g. Cygwin tools or CoLinux or Microsoft S ervices for Unix (SFU) or MKS Toolset
    • X11 Server, e.g. Hummingbird Exceed oder Cygwin/X or Xming
    • GLX/OpenGL extension for certain X11 servers, e.g. Hummingbird Exceed 3D

  • Silicon Graphics (MIPS CPUs) with IRIX 5.2 and higher

Other UNIX systems (e.g. SUN Solaris, IBM AIX, BSD) on request.

During the development of PROCHEM-C the easy portability to different system platforms and the transparent access to data of different systems were important criteria.
For this reason PROCHEM-C can be used on low cost entry systems as well as on high performance platforms.
Many customers use PROCHEM-C on serveral different platforms.

At the moment LINUX is the preferred platform because of low price and TCO, the great flexibility, the high overall system performance, the huge variety of open software interface, the high level of security an stability and the simple installation and system administration.

On the actual available and the following systems PROCHEM-C has been used by our customers :
Apollo/Domain (Motorola MC680x0 CPUs ; Domain/OS 9.7, Domain/IX 10.1),
