VDT 2.0.0p10 Update

On 2009-09-22, the VDT team announced the release of VDT 2.0.0p10.

Changes to VDT 2.0.0p10

  1. Fixed lcg-utils to report the correct version number. The last release reported 0.0.0. The version of lcg-utils has not changed.
  2. Updated glexec-osg from 0.6.6 to 0.6.7. This fixes a problem in the glexec monitor that caused failures under heavy load. Due to upstream changes, this also drops support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. It also improves performance when the VDT that glexec is installed in is on NFS and adds the environment wrap and unwrap scripts (VDT ticket 5736)
  3. Updated Java 5 to 1.5.0_21 (VDT ticket 5823)
    Removed the unnecessary Java paths from LD_LIBRARY_PATH (VDT ticket 5633)

Updating to VDT 2.0.0p10

If you installed VDT 2.0.0 after VDT 2.0.0p10 was released on 2009-09-22, you do not need to do any of these update operations because you will have 2.0.0p10.

Recommended method: VDT Updater

We strongly encourage users to update the VDT using the VDT updater script: VDT Updater Instructions

Not recommended: Pacman update

If you really want to do it the hard way, instructions for updating by using Pacman directly are available on another page. This method is hard to follow and error prone.
