Round Table


  • LbScripts v7r2 released in production
  • As discussed with Gloria: LHAPDF tarballs are 5.2 GB alone. They are too big to import everything into the GENSER tarball. We need to discuss what to choose...
  • ARM compilation continuing: Gaudi v23r4 armv7l-fc17-gcc47-opt done


  • Development of Compatibility Tracking DB ongoing.
  • No feedback on the known incompatibilities (to feed the initial DB).


  • Global tag yesterday
  • Another today.

Marco Cl.

  • Progressing on CMake
    • cloned the CMake modules into LbScripts/LbUtils
    • working on integration of getpack and SetupProject (not really urgent)
  • Preparing compiler wrapper scripts for all LCG compilers in LbScripts.


  • New build machines ready. Thomas is testing them.
    Marco Ca.: we need to decommission the old machines ASAP.
  • PyGSI provided by SFT for all the platforms/Pythons.
  • Starting validation of lxplus6.
  • 5 projects sent to ISIMA.
    Forum on the 8th of November.


  • New machines building correctly.
  • Need to move the server before decommissioning.
  • Need Mario to update SLS.
  • Problem during the weekend: lxbuild161 died (no summaries, etc).

Marco Ca.: we need to check the disks of the machines to be decommissioned and send messages to the users.
