VDT 2.0.0 is supported on the following platforms:
|Operating System||Architectures||Pacman Name for OS|
|CentOS 5||x86, x86-64||CentOS-5|
|Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 AP||x86, x86-64||RHEL-5|
VDT 2.0.0 used to be supported on more platforms, and you can still install VDT 2.0.0p35 (the version as of February 28, 2012) on the following set of platforms. However, when we provide software updates to the VDT, these platforms will not receive any updates.
/usr/lib*/python*/xmlMost Linux platforms include this Python package as part of their base Python installation, but at least the SLES 9 platform does not. If needed, install the xml package according to your distribution. On SLES 9, we have found that the python-xml-2.3.3-88.1 RPM installs the xml Python package.
The VDT does not support SELinux though some of our supported platforms may come with SELinux enabled by default. Be sure to disable SELinux in /etc/sysconfig/selinux before installing the VDT.
If you are installing Globus to provide access to PBS or LSF, they will need to be pre-installed. If you will be using the Web Services portion of Globus, the log files for PBS and LSF must be accessible from the gatekeeper node: these log files are read in order to monitor the progress of jobs.
Given the large number of platforms we support it's unrealistic to build natively on all of them. In most cases a single set of binaries will work just the same, provided that the required compatibility libraries are installed.
|Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4||compat-libstdc++-33|
|Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5||compat-libstdc++-33|
When installing Globus-Base-SDK or PyGlobus in 32-bit mode on an x86-64 architecture machine, you need to have the right 32-bit glibc RPMs installed. On RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 AS and Scientific Linux Fermi 4, we have found that 32-bit versions of the following packages are needed:
On SuSE 9 IA64 (but not x86-64), you will need to install the python-xml rpm
