MPU Meeting Tuesday 5th October 2010

LCFG Server Refactoring



This has been submitted for closure at Wednesday's Development Meeting. There were problems with CD installs not working on 745s - now fixed.


login screen
the possibility of using KDM is still being investigated.

64 bit
LCFG package lists, onging. This is 90% done at the LCFG level.

devel buckets
still need to be closed.

Software Build Farm

There has not been much progress recently. Stephen to update activity info for Development meeting accordingly.

Miscellaneous Development

install scripts in packages
some of these expect /proc to be mounted and /dev to be populated which was causing problems. Alastair has a workaround. (?)


ethernet problems : sometimes loses network connectivity, but which interface? We need a wiki topic to track instances of problems like this. This could be related to a known bug in Redhat. Alastair has created a wiki for hardware documentation . There was a discussion about the ethernet bonding issues of Dell 610s/710s and how to make sure the appropriate port pairs are configured to ensure redundancy (eth0/2 - eth1/3).

Machine moves
