VDT 2.0.0p12 Update

On 2010-01-07, the VDT team announced the release of VDT 2.0.0p12.

Changes to VDT 2.0.0p12

  1. Updated Bestman tools (VDT Ticket 6103) (VDT Ticket 5888)
  2. Updated Xrootd to 20091028-1003 with XrootdFS 3.0rc3 (VDT Ticket 6109)
  3. The vdt-updater script will now be included in all VDT installations.

Updating to VDT 2.0.0p12

If you installed VDT 2.0.0 after VDT 2.0.0p12 was released on 2010-01-07, you do not need to do any of these update operations because you will have 2.0.0p12.

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.
