Minutes of the LIM meeting, Feb 10, 2005

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

Apologies: David Quarrie (ATLAS), Eric Poinsignon (SPI)


Alberto is sick this week, so the fixing of the doxygen documentation for the LCG AA projects will be delayed.

The sources for CLHEP are installed in the external/clhep/ directory for ease of browsing. Andreas will have a look into providing the doxygen documentation for this as well (lower priority).

A new version of CLHEP is in preparation. There are several bug fixes which also include changes in header files, so SPI will deploy a "patched" release with urgent fixes for CMS (bug ID 6167) and LHCb (compiler flag) as This will be used by the releases next week. Andreas will check with Geant-4 to see when the next release of CLHEP can be incorporated.


The packages kcachegrind and callgrind need to be installed into the valgrind installation. In addition the full path to valgrind is stored in the packages, resulting in these packages not being relocatable. This causes a problem for the distribution. No solution for this right now (apart from re-installation from sources).

The question of gcc 3.4.3 also for ia32 platforms (in addition to amd64/ia64) will have to be discussed by the Architects Forum.

The PI package has set the unix access rights too strictly. Andreas to check and remove the write protection (unix) to allow more easy updates.

Andreas (with SPI team) should check/validate the directory structure of all LCG AA projects, both in checkout and (more importantly) in the installation area.

Next meeting: February 24, 11:00.

Action items:

new and outstanding:

  • create "LCGAA" pseudo-package for to download the binaries of a related set of releases in one go.

  • status of root-4 based releases
    • the final releases based on the released root 4.03.02 is expected for next week, comprising seal 1.6.0, pool 2.0.0 and pi 1.3.0.
