    OpenPBS


    I am having an install problem with OpenPBS on a Red Hat 9 computer.

    I keep getting the following error when trying to install the software.

    error: Failed dependencies:
    libtcl8.0.so is needed by openpbs-2.3pl2-1
    libtk8.0.so is needed by openpbs-2.3pl2-1
    /usr/bin/tclsh8.0 is needed by openpbs-2.3pl2-1
    /usr/bin/wish8.0 is needed by openpbs-2.3pl2-1

    I get this message when I type the following command 'rpm -i openpbs-2.3pl2-1.i386.rpm'

    Any ideas or advice.

    Thanks in advance

    Barry..

    visit rpmfind.net. you need to download libtk, tclsh, libtcl, wish and install them first.

    I have found the packages on the site that you recomended, but when I try to install the packages it says that they are older than the ones that are installed on the system.

    The error message say that it is looking for /usr/bin/tclsh8.0 which is not there but I do have /usr/bin/tclsh8.3

    Do you think that this version of OpenPBS is not compatible with RedHat 9?

    if you have all the required dependancies, it *should* be ok, you can use
    Code:
    rpm -i --force openpbs-2.3pl2-1.i386.rpm
    when installing the openpbs rpm. (notice addition of --force)

    I seem to get the same error message when I use the --force option.

    I can't see why it is not working, I am installing as root, I have newer files than the ones required and it still isn't working.

    Any other ideas?

    You could use --nodeps to turn off dep's, but its not recomended at all. Why not just compile it by hand?

    it works but some nodes stay "busy"

    Hello All!
    I've installed openpbs in a group of computers in my university and they work perfectly for a time, but since 2 or 3 months ago one of them always stays in "busy" state even when ther wern't any job or program running.

    I fond that I can return that node to "free" state puting it offline (pbsnodes -o <nodename>) and then putting it back online (pbsnodes -r <nodename>) but I have to do it manually and eche time that this node has to reboot I have to do it .

    I found in opnepbs mailing list archive someone who had the same problem, but no one answers him, if there is anybody here who can I will be very grateful to her.

    here are the links to openpbs mailing list archive if any of you has acces

    http://www.openpbs.org/UserArea/pbs-users/2090.html
    http://www.openpbs.org/UserArea/pbs-users/2006.html

    so thankyou very much!

    txino !. !.
