New WMS repository

This update contains a new release of the glite-WMS with major changes in the code and the configuration. More detailed information can be found at


APT repository

A new repository has been set up to install the glite-WMS, glite-LB and glite-WMSLB metapackages as it contains packages that would interfere with the normal 3.0 repository. We are following the new gLite 3.1 release series repository structure for this repository, so in principle there is a repository for each metapackage:

The new WMS repository for PPS is available at the following location:


with the 3 repository directories: - externals - Release3.0 - updates

The new LB repository for the PPS is available at the following location:


with the 3 repository directories: - externals - Release3.0 - updates

The new WMSLB repository for the PPS is available at the following location:

   http://lxb2042.cern.ch:/gLite/APT/R3.0-pps-WMSLB/ rhel30 externals Release3.0 updates

with the 3 repository directories: - externals - Release3.0 - updates

In reality the three repositories are for the moment the same and the LB and WMSLB are only symlinks from the WMS repository. The WMS repository is selfconsistent in the sense that you only need to specify this new repository to install the WMS and you do not need to specify the old 3.0 repository. So in order to install the WMS with apt you would need to specify:

   rpm http://lxb2042.cern.ch:/gLite/APT/R3.0-pps-WMS/ rhel30 externals Release3.0 updates
in the corresponding apt configuration file.
