Re: [Condor-users] Condor 6.7.20 Released!

All is well now.  I had to remove my old /usr/local/condor directory in
order for the installer to actually write the files.  It wouldn't just
overwrite the old files with the newer version.  All of the files in
/usr/local/condor were owned by root and I was running the installer as
root.  I also didn't get any kind of warning or error during the

Was I supposed to do something special for the installer to upgrade my
existing install?  I just simply extracted the tarball and ran
condor_install, and followed the prompts.

6.7.19, and the modify date also show 5-9-06.

Hi John,

I've just taken a look at the condor-6.7.20-linux-x86_64-dynamic.tar.gz 
package, and the binaries appear to be from the 6.7.20 release, dated 
6/21. Are you sure that your install succeeded? If the binaries have in 
fact been installed and they're still the old versions, perhaps you 
could give us the name and md5sum of the tarball you downloaded and we 
can help you diagnose the problem.
