  • ROOT6 in 68_root6 does not run without AFS. A patched version will be deployed to CVMFS.
  • Vidyo Issues have been discussed at the IT-LHCb meeting. They may be related to firewall issues and it is recommended to send client logs when reporting the problem.
  • We have migrated version of the savannah project to a test instance of Jira. Unfortunately, the test machine is not accessible from the outside, and the people concerned are mostly outside users. Ben to follow up on this with PH-SFT.

Round Table


  • Preparing a migration plan for the build machines and voboxes to the puppet infrastructure. Quattor will be switched off on the 31st of October.

Marco Ca.

  • Full software stack release on LCG 68/68_root6. * Prepared an updated version of the computing task list to be reviewed and finalized before the end of next week. * A skeleton agenda of the Computing week will be released this week, as we need to advertise the workshop soon.


* Encountering problems with the Erica tool for COuchDB application, as it does not work with the version of Erlang available on slc6 (R14)


* Waiting for a version of MooreOnline to test the checkpointing with. (M.Cattaneo: Need to contact Gerhard, as Rob will very soon be gone).


  • Working on LCG ROOT6 issue, in order to unblock the situation. * Herwig++ requires libtemcap.so.2 to installed. Looking for a workaround until a new version can be released.


  • Committed changes to detcond


  • Working on a simple geometry (simple box), and will work on a telescope style detector,
