Re: [Condor-users] problem on the installation!


The problem is that when you install Condor from the Ubuntu (or any) repository, it simply doesn't include the 'condor_install' script.  The idea is that the package manager wants to keep track how Condor is installed.  As long as the package manager knows where all of the files are, it can easily uninstall and upgrade the package's files (albeit rarely, since the people at Ubuntu are still a few versions behind).  So, since they want you to use the package manager to do all of this, they purposefully didn't include the 'condor_install' script because such a low-level reinstall would cause the package manager to lose track of the installed files.  Thus, the only good way to get the latest version is to download it from the Condor project website.  Just install the *.deb file (so you can still kinda use the package manager).   If you *really* want the 'condor_install' script, the only place to get it (I think) is in the full source code download, which is also available on the website.

I have used ' apt-get install condor' to install condor, but the version is 7.4.0, so I want to update it as following,
condor_install --install= /tmp/condor-7.6.3-x86_64_deb_5.0-stripped --prefix=/usr/local/condor --local-dir=/home/condor --type=submit,execute
Missing release directories (looking in /tmp/condor-7.6.3-x86_64_deb_5.0-stripped):
Unable to find some release directories.
  Please specify the correct location of these with 
--install=<path to release directories> or make sure it's 
in the current directory

actually, there is no 'sql' dir in the package! I am so puzzled, who can give a hand?

I want install condor on the second server,so I used the command as following,

The program 'condor_install' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:
apt-get install condor

the message is not appeared on the installation of first server,what's the problem?
