3.1.0 PPS Update 13

Release date: 11.01.2008

Comment [12.01.2008] Tarballs have been added.

Comment [17.01.2008] The patch #1595 (R3.1/SLC4/i386: 2GB file fix for DPM gridftp) has been added to the release. This has resulted into new metapackages for glite-SE_dpm_disk and _mysql. In addition, 64 bit repositories for dcache have been added to the release. The 64 bit versions of dcache can be installed using the yum groupinstall method.


The main issues of this update are the following:
  • new metapackages for dCache
  • globus update, which results most of the metapackages to be upgraded
  • GFAL/lcg_util update

In addition, there is an update of the bdii configuration as well as new voms-admin-client tools, which have been added into the glite-UI and glite-VOBOX metapackages.


For mirroring it should be taken into consideration that the dCache packages are located in a separate generic-dcache repository and symbolic links have been created to point to this central location.
