Re: [Condor-users] ERROR "Can't compute physical memory."

Sorry, wrong error. (I can fix this by setting the MEMORY value in users/condor/condor_config)

I don't what startd running on the central manager just on the the pool machines, which it is, but I'm not getting anything from condor_status and thus no jobs run.

There are a number of jobs in the que with 'no match' and I don't know if that's because there are no pool machines listed in condor_status or because they have a fault but either way they wouldn't be the cause of condor_status being empty would they?

I had condor working. I shut down the central manager to add a slave to the
hard disk and now I can't get startd to start.  I don't think there is
anyproblem with the memory, output from 'cat /proc/meminfo' looks normal.

Can anyone point me at the cause?
