VDS on Fedora Core 4

A recent software update on Fedora Core 4 changed the version of glibc, which affected some pre-compiled versions of software, including the virtual data system (VDS). This affects LIGO, and David Meyers asked what versions of VDS we have in VDT 1.3.10. We currently have:

We distribute these under different names. The mapping is:
vds-binary-1.4.4.ia64_rhas_3.tar.gz->vds-binary-1.4.4-linux-ia64-glibc225.tar.gz
vds-binary-1.4.4.x86_64_rhas_3.tar.gz->vds-binary-1.4.4-linux-amd64-glibc233.tar.gz
vds-binary-1.4.4.x86_rh_7.2.tar.gz->vds-binary-1.4.4-linux-i686-glibc225.tar.gz
vds-binary-1.4.4.x86_rh_9.tar.gz->vds-binary-1.4.4-linux-i686-glibc232.tar.gz
vds-binary-1.4.4.x86_rhas_3.tar.gz->vds-binary-1.4.4-linux-i686-glibc236.tar.gz

You should be able to tell which one you installed by looking in the vdt-install.log file.

We're open to people giving us other high-priority reasons to not delay the release and get the new VOMS distributed as soon as possible. The reasons are:
