[Condor-users] condor installation problems


Iam trying to install condor rpm on Fedora Core 2. Due to conflicting
statements in the installation document regarding "root" and user
"condor", Iam highly confused.

1. What is the group ID I need to give to user "condor"? Is it "users"?

2. Somewhere, it is said that during rpm installation,
"If the condor user is present on the system, the installation script will
assume that that is the effective user that Condor should run as."
How can we verify this?

3. After, condor has been installed to /usr/local/condor, I copy the
/etc/condor_config file to /home/condor
and change few minor things:
##  Where is the local condor directory for each host?
LOCAL_DIR               = $(TILDE)/hosts/$(HOSTNAME)

##  Where is the machine-specific local config file for each host?
LOCAL_CONFIG_FILE       = $(LOCAL_DIR)/condor_config.local

I also make that the appropriate directories and files exist in
/home/condor. I also create directories

where garl-intel1 is the $(HOSTNAME)

4. And when I run the master as "root", I get:
>> /usr/local/condor/sbin/condor_master
Can't open "/home/condor/hosts/garl-intel1/log/MasterLog"
9/1 22:08:25 dprintf() had a fatal error in pid 1222
Can't open "/home/condor/hosts/garl-intel1/log/MasterLog"
errno: 13 (Permission denied)
euid: 1, ruid: 0

The permissions of the directories in /home/condor/hosts/garl-intel1 are
as follows:

-rw-r--r--  1 condor condor  585 Sep  1 22:05 condor_config.local
drwxr-xr-x  2 condor condor 8192 Sep  1 22:07 execute
drwxr-xr-x  2 condor condor 8192 Sep  1 22:07 log
drwxr-xr-x  2 condor condor 8192 Sep  1 22:07 spool

Now Iam completely lost. I have been trying different things for
successful and correct installation and starting of daemons for the past
several hours. What am I doing wrong? Please help me !
