Re: [Condor-users] better-analyze not available?

Actually, the problem comes in during the build, so if you build on a
RHEL5/Centos5 system then the resulting build won't have the
better-analyze option available.  However, if you install a pre-built
RHEL3 version of condor you should be have it available.  The pre-built
condor binaries contain all dependencies needed to run condor, so they
can really be run on just about any Linux distribution/version.

As to whether or not it will cleanly install over what you already have
installed, I'm not sure because I'm not sure how you built condor.  If
you are installing a pre-built RHEL3 on top of a pre-built RHEL5, then
there shouldn't be any problems.  It never hurts to backup a
configuration before an install just to be safe though.

Hi Rob,

What platform of condor did you download/build?  RHEL5?
Yes, RHEL5.  I am running CentOS5.
better-analyze requires the new classad library, which is currently only supported on i386 and x86_64 architectures with glibc version 2.3. RHEL5 has glibc 2.5, so condor packages built on RHEL5 will not have -better-analyze support. If you install the RHEL3 build, you should have support for -better-analyze.
So you're saying I can download, compile, and install the RHEL3 version even though I'm running CentOS5 (RHEL5-equivalent)? Will this "cleanly" install over top of my current Condor installation, or will I have to manually backup and restore my configuration?

Are there any disadvantages of using the RHEL3 version instead of RHEL5?
