I really want to take this version of PBSpro for a spin, but I have some installation issues, which I hope that you may address.
We run a small’ish cluster, with dedicated head node (frontend) and some nodes, all installed with CentOS7.2.
I have fetched and scanned the install documentation from
If at all possible, I should like to install from pre-compiled packages - either the ones made by Altair (http://pbspro.org/Download.aspx#download) or by compiling to packages myself. Presently, I have problems going down both these paths.
Regarding the precompiled packages (14.1.0-13.1), they presently fail to install on our system due to
A. the packages require sendmail - but we use postfix.
B. the packages require libical.so.0 but we have libical.so.1
Regarding the from-source (git) installation, it seems to be a different version (14.0.1)?
Secondly, I do not really find a lot of information about how to build the packages - only how to install from source directly on a machine (which I would prefer to avoid).
As the pre-compiled version (the zip file) contains a “src-rpm”, it might be possible to compile (with rpmbuild) my own versions of the compiled packages, but again - more information would really be appreciated.
On a side-note I recommend changing from zip to tgz or tar.gz (not that it matters much).
Otherwise - thanks a lot for the initiative.
