Do you plan a patch ? Please let me know.

Just to be clear, there is no bug in HTCondor to patch. If we knew what was triggering Dr Web to falsely identify our 'condor_ckpt_probe' tool on Ubuntu as a virus we could perhaps change it. We have sent email to the support channel for Dr Web with our findings and have not yet heard a response. If you have contracted support with Dr Web, perhaps you could do the same - maybe you'd get a faster response. Then you could forward along to us what they say :).

In the meantime, if you do not intend to recompile your jobs with condor_compile and then submit jobs with "universe=standard" to HTCondor, or if you have no idea what I am talking about with regards to condor_compile and standard universe, then the condor_ckpt_probe binary is not required and can be removed with no consequences.

Hope this helps,

    will continue to work properly.
