Re: [Condor-users] Can't start up 6.6.11 static glibc 2.3 on Linux SUSE 10.1


My central manager is currently Suse 10.1 - soon to be Scintific Linux. To get it to work I had to
set the following in the condor_config file

CONDOR_IDS = 1000.100

I created the condor user via yast (make sure you do the same and then set your condor_ids as

You can then disable user login for condor in yast - that does not prevent Condor from working

Also note that I installed condor-6.6.11-linux-x86-glibc23-dynamic.tar.gz

And that I had to install lib-std-c++ compat (or something similar) using yast --install ...

I meant to say SUSE 10.1 below (not 10.2, sorry)
