installation IRAF package for Linux 64bit

Now, I am using Linux 64bit and trying to use IRAF package as a beginner. Here are those installation method which could work properly.
Thanks information from the website and Ohio-state.edu. 
**Notethat: run bash shell before using IRAF .....after you have created LOGIN.CL script
the command to start is.....cl or ecl ....in terminal...it should work properly.

This page describes how to setup IRAF on a 64-bit Ubuntu/Debian machine.
Installation of X11IRAF, DS9 and key packages are also included. 

It will be easiest if you just copy-paste the instructions one by one except 
for the parts in [[ ]].

For 32-bit installation, see -

An excellent and easy alternative installation option is provided by the Ureka project -

sudo apt-get install tcsh libxss1 lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 libXmu6:i386

wget ftp://iraf.noao.edu/iraf/v216/PCIX/iraf.lnux.x86_64.tar.gz

[[If the prompt does not return after 100% then hit ctrl+c and proceed]]

sudo mkdir /iraf

sudo mkdir /iraf/iraf

sudo mv iraf.lnux.x86_64.tar.gz /iraf/iraf/.

cd /iraf/iraf

sudo tar -zxf iraf.lnux.x86_64.tar.gz

sudo rm iraf.lnux.x86_64.tar.gz

sudo ./install

[[Keep hitting Enter for all prompts]]

sudo mkdir /iraf/x11iraf

cd /iraf/x11iraf

sudo wget http://iraf.noao.edu/iraf/ftp/iraf/x11iraf/x11iraf-v2.0BETA-bin.linux.tar.gz

sudo tar -zxf x11iraf-v2.0BETA-bin.linux.tar.gz

sudo rm x11iraf-v2.0BETA-bin.linux.tar.gz

sudo ./install

[[Keep hitting Enter for all prompts]]

sudo wget http://ds9.si.edu/archive/linux64/ds9.linux64.7.2.tar.gz

sudo tar -zxf ds9.linux64.7.2.tar.gz

sudo rm ds9.linux64.7.2.tar.gz

sudo mv ds9 /usr/local/bin/.


wget http://www.astronomy.ohio-state.edu/~khan/iraf/iraf

sudo chmod u=rwx iraf

mkdir IRAF



[[Select "xgterm" as your IRAF shell when prompted]]



The command ./iraf from home directory will now launch a complete IRAF session containing DS9,
xgterm and ecl, based in the IRAF direcory. Alternately, start "xgterm' (typing xgterm), 
cd into the directory where you did "mkiraf", type "ecl" for enhanced IRAF or 
"cl" for VO IRAF, and "ds9" for standalone DS9 launch. 

The following steps show how to add external packages. If you don't need extra packages, 
then you are done already.


cd /iraf/iraf/extern

sudo ./configure

[[The next two lines will take some time to complete, even with fast internet. Be patient.]]

sudo make adccdrom ctio cfh12k esowfi mscdb mscred stsdas nfextern optic

sudo make deitab euv mem0 mtools rvsao song sqiid stecf ucsclris upsqiid xdimsum



Next time you start IRAF, the available packages will be listed.
