There was a good response to our poster from Neuroscience this year. Below is the poster for those interested. Click image for PDF.
Just a reminder for the 18,000 people at Neuroscience 2012, we’ll be presenting on Wednesday Oct 17 from 1-5pm. Poster GGG12. Poster can also be viewed here: SfN2012
This is a quick demo video of NIDB so people can see some of the capabilities. Enjoy!
The video is best viewed in HD and fullscreen.
Download the VM image from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/nidb/files/NIDB4.1.2/NIDB.7z/download
Unzip the file using 7-zip. Open the .vbox file by double clicking. It may give you a couple messages, and below are the solutions
- Install the Oracle VirtualBox add-on pack. Also make sure you are using VirtualBox 4.2
- VirtualBox may say that the Realtek network adapter is not installed. Go into the VM’s settings. Make sure that bridged adapter is selected. Click Ok to save the settings.
- VirtualBox may complain about a missing CD/DVD image. You may release the CentOS 6.3 image in the virtual media manager.
Once you have the VM running, you can login as nidb, password is ‘password’. su to root and type ifconfig. This will display the IP address for the NIDB installation, which is on the second line for eth0: “inet addr: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx”. Go to a browser (preferably Google Chrome) on your host machine and type that ip address in. You will see the NIDB login screen. Login using admin/password.
Due to a 5GB file size limit on sourceforge, the original VM image was not available to download. A zipped (7-zip) VM is now available and does download correctly. Get it from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/nidb/files/NIDB4.1.2/NIDB.7z/download
NIDB is officially released! Version 4.1.2 is available for download for CentOS 6.3 or as a Virtual Box .vdi image (which includes FSL). Try it out!
Release notes (v4.1.2 – 10/2/2012)
- Initial release
- Default username for MySQL: root, NIDB: admin, CentOS: root
- Default password for MySQL, NIDB, CentOS is ‘password’
- DICOM receiver is listening by default on port 104, AE title ‘NIDB’
- Modules to run NIDB background programs are NOT enabled by default. Enable them manually.
- [bug] ImageMagick may need to be installed manually if not installed by the setup script. use “yum install ImageMagick” to install it.
- [bug] For MR QA, the fft image, color-mapped image, and FFT radial average image may not appear because ImageMagick is not compiled with the FFT module
- [bug] Pipeline analyses work, however no documentation is yet provided on how to set them up
- [bug] Download to local FTP will download data to /nidb/ftp, but the installer does not automatically create an FTP account chroot’d to that directory. You’ll need to create your own FTP account, and then change the FTP section of the /nidb/programs/config.pl file to reflect your account information.
