Upgrade Log

Glite 3.0

Using the tarball install for the WN here As indicated here.
I'm doing the TAR_WN install as a regular user onto an NFS mounted filesystem


  1. A trailing '/' on INSTALL_ROOT causes problems in config_glite when trying to compare variables
  2. The Glite parts don't seem to be as happy with the install on one box then export over NFS model. It keeps trying to create files and directories outside the INSTALL_ROOT. so far
    1. /etc/profile.d/glite_setenv.sh
    2. /opt//glite/etc/rgma/rgma.conf
    3. /tmp/glite
    4. /var/glite
    5. /var/log/glite
    • 1&2 I fixed up
    • Ignored, anything that depends on a driectory in /tmp existing has other problems.
    • Were detected by the installer and alternates created under the INSTALL_ROOT. Not sure that having directories intended for writing shared over NFS is that good an idea.
  3. Further the glite parameters mentioned in section 6.4.5 of this don't seem to be being set by YAIM which causes config_glite to abort. It seems to be fairly easy to just replace the "changeme" text in the template but I though YAIM was supposed to handle this.
