glite-MPI_utils - Update to version 3.2.1-0

Date 08.02.2010
Priority Normal



This patch introduces the glite-MPI_utils metapackage for gLite 3.2

This release of the glite-MPI_utils fixes a long known dependency issue with an incompatible torque library provided by the torque RPM.

There have been several updates to glite-yaim-mpi:

  • The YAIM configuration will now look in the YAIM "services" configuration directory for configuration details.
  • There have been minor changes to the YAIM MPI configuration scripts which fix some observed problems relating to variable assignment.

The default MPI installation is now OPENMPI, which is provided by the Scientific Linux distribution. Support for MPICH1 and MPICH2 has been discontinued on SL4. MPICH2 is available for SL5.

The supplied OPENMPI packages are compiled with support for Infiniband. If your site does not support infiniband, openmpi will output warnings. To fix this problem at your site, please see:

The affected files are:

SL4: /usr/lib/openmpi/1.2.8-gcc/etc/openmpi-mca-params.conf

SL5: /usr/lib64/openmpi/1.2.7-gcc/etc/openmpi-mca-params.conf

New release of yaim core

New release of yaim core containing a set of bug fixes and new features:

  • New SAGA adapters. There's a new function called config_glite_saga that configures the SAGA gLite adapters.
  • grid environment cleaning mechanism to be able to install different WN tarball versions in the same machine.
  • Variables that were wrongly implemented in previous yaim releases are now fixed: CONFIG_GRIDMAPDIR and USER_HOME_PREFIX.
  • YAIM doesn't fail when gLite version package is not installed. This is useful for non gLite software using YAIM.
  • siteinfo packaging is now fixed (-p option).

New release of glite-version and glue-schema

The new glite-SE_dpm_disk metapackage introduces a new version of:

  • glite-version: new version of glite-version introducing a set of new options to print information about the versions of the installed gLite nodetypes, their architecture and their update number. It still prints information about the gLite release (i.e. 3.2.0).
  • glue-schema: minor update to change GLUE2PolicyUserDomainForeignKey from being mandatory to optional.

These two packages are also part of other services which are also updated to the new versions with this update,as it can be seen in the service detail pages.

This update fixes various bugs. For the full list of bugs, please see list below.
