The file sbin/condor_master is a binary executable not a shell script.
This is a daemon program meant to be run from a SysV init script in
/etc/init.d -- it'll fork itself into the background and run there.

I'm 99% certain you should be fine with the Core 4 files. There might be
problems if you're trying to do checkpointing. But vanilla jobs should

You'll have to edit the condor_config file and make sure RELASE_DIR and
LOCAL_DIR are set to /opt/condor-6.7.19. Should be near the top of the
file. You might want to scan it for any other paths but changing those
two should cover it.

Personally I never bother with the RPMs. The .tar.gz bundles are easy to
install. Condor is fairly self contained. It doesn't go dropping .so
files and .man files all over the place.
