Re: [HTCondor-users] CentOS Condor RPM installing condor_ssh_to_job_sshd_config_template in non-default location

The documentation I'm seeing says "The default

The link in /etc/condor is pointing to the correct location.

Any reason not to make the default /etc/condor instead of $(LIB)?


Hi Lee (or nomad?),

Glad to hear that the RPM installed HTCondor correctly in your environment and it all is working, albeit with the help of a symlink.

I personally tend to agree with your thoughts above, but if you wish to read the thinking behind why it currently works the way it does, see the remarks/comments from the folks who package HTCondor at URL:


Hope the above helps,
