Minutes of the LIM meeting, Jun 2, 2005

Present: Emil Obreshkov (ATLAS), Eric Poinsignon (SPI), Shahzad Muzaffar (CMS), Andreas Pfeiffer (SPI)

Apologies: Florence Ranjard (LHCb), David Quarrie (ATLAS), Vasily Kabachenko (ATLAS)


The doxygen tag files for ROOT and CLHEP are needed by the experiments. Andreas to check with Alberto. The naming scheme of the directories and web links (following the same structure as for the LCG AA projects) is ok for the experiments.

The new version of COOL (former CondDB) based on POOL 2.0.7 (SEAL 1.6.3) has been released: COOL 1.1.0.

A debug version of root 4.04.02 has been produced for slc3_ia32_gcc323 and is installed in the corresponding AFS path.

The gcov code coverage analysis for CLHEP and ROOT 4.04.02 have been done by the SPI team and are now available at:


Experiments have reported the list of old root versions still in use, so Eric will now rename the ones not in use any longer by appending a "_TOREMOVE" to their version in preparation for the deletion (foreseen for mid July).

Alberto has contacted Solveig Albrand on the new version for RuleChecker and is planning to organize a meeting with IRST (the provider of RuleChecker) once he has accumulated more feedback. Interested experiments are asked to contact Alberto directly to give him feedback on their issues with RuleChecker.


CMS asked for adding the --enable-qt flag to the installation of root 4.04.02 on slc3_ia32_gcc323. This only adds new libs and header files and does not touch the existing installed s/w (confirmed by Rene). Meanwhile this has beed done by Andreas and the distribution files have been rebuild by Eric. Feedback is (as usual) welcome.

The compiler version 3.4.4 has been rebuild "in place" for ia32 and amd64 architectures in order to allow the libstdc++ to be a shared lib (having this static caused problems when building some external packages as the code in the lib was not compiled with -fPIC). The installation can be used from: /afs/ Users have to make sure that both of the <gccDir>/lib and <gccDir>/lib64 directories are first in their LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

Next meeting: June 16, 11:00.

Action items:

new and outstanding:

  • create doxy-tag files for CLHEP and ROOT

  • provide "flexible" download/install for GENSER 1.0.0

  • check/validate the directory structure of all LCG AA projects (checkout and install area)

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

status of releases:

  • a new version of COOL (1.1.0) has been build based on seal 1.6.3, pool 2.0.7, pi 1.3.3 and cool 1.0.3 (LCG_35_2)
