Minutes of the LIM meeting, Oct 28, 2004

Present: Florence Ranjard (LHCb), Shahzad Muzaffar (CMS), Emil Obreshkov (ATLAS), Andreas Pfeiffer (SPI)

Andreas apologised to not have had the time to follow up on some of the work/action items from the last meeting as he was away (IEEE/NSS conference, Rome) for a large part of the time.

Concerning the rh73_gcc32 version of PI which is requested by Atlas, Andreas asked if this can be a newer release than 1.2.3. Emil to investigate. [David Q. confirmed later that the most recent version would be ok, so the action item has been moved to provide version 1.2.4 (based on seal 1.4.2) for this platform].

The following additional external packages as requested by CMS will be installed in external:

  • Coin3D version 2.3.0
  • QuteXMLRPC version 0.1 (based on Qt 3.3.2)
  • SoQt version 1.2.0 (patched), for this only the Coin3D based build will go in external, as the build based on TGS inventor will/may need a license (to be clarified).

Help from CMS for the initial install will be needed (and CMS is willing to provide it). Details on the planning to be discussed with Eric/Yannick.

A request to install callgrind version 0.9.9 (and kcachegrind which is now part of SLC3, so no further action on this) was issued by LHCb.

It was discussed (and subsequently agreed by the AF) that further requests by the experiments for new packages to be installed into the external/ area should be channelled/filtered through the experiments' LIM representative who then in turn brings the issue up at the LIM meeting or in the mailing list.

Emil mentioned that there are some libraries missing in the POOL 1.7.0 installation for SLC3. Andreas to look into this. [Further investigation by Andreas shows they are in the "contrib" subsystem of POOL, which seem to not be build by default with the "recipe" he got from Ioannis. Contacted the POOL team on advice, the libs will be installed asap.]

Next meeting: November 11, 11:00.

Action items:

- provide _dbg versions for SLC3 platform - foreseen for the new releases of the projects: seal 1.4.2, pool 1.8.0, pi 1.4.2 and the root-4 based counterparts.

- PI 1.2.3 for rh73_gcc32 - moved to version 1.2.4 (using seal 1.4.2)

- plan for releases on Mac

- plan/install external packages for CMS and LHCb
