3.1.0 PPS Update 17

Release date: 31.01.2008


  • 31.01.2008 Tarballs added. Their urls are available in the bottom of this page.


The main issues of this update are the following:
  • lcg_util update
  • new glite-MPI_util metapackage

There are also two other minor patches inclede in this update.

Please take into account that the VOMS metapackages have been updated because of 'backporting' the changes from production when the patch #1521 was introduced to production.

The lcg-CE metapackage has also been updated because one of its dependencies has been updated. However, in reality, the lcg-CE metapackage should not depend on that particular package at all, so there should not be any changes in the functionality of the lcg-CE service. A bug has been filed on this BUG:33111.


Changes have been committed in the following location:

1) The 32bit 'generic' repository http://grid-deployment.web.cern.ch/grid-deployment/glite/pps/3.1/generic/sl4/i386/

2) The 32bit/64bit 'generic-dcache' repository http://grid-deployment.web.cern.ch/grid-deployment/glite/pps/3.1/generic-dcache/sl4/i386/ http://grid-deployment.web.cern.ch/grid-deployment/glite/pps/3.1/generic-dcache/sl4/x86_64/
