Instant-Grid version 0.6
Submitted by Christian Boehme on Fri, 22/12/2006 - 16:15.
Instant-Grid version 0.6 is based on Knoppix 5.0.0 and Globus-Toolkit 4.0.2. The most important new additions are the possibility of rendering movies with the grid-enabled POV-Ray interface, GridSearch, a tool to search text documents in an Instant-Grid, and the Grid Workflow Manager.
New in this Version
- Parallel rendering of animations with POV-Ray
- Searching text documents on Instant-Grid machines with GridSearch
- Replaced kernel space NFS with user space NFS for enhanced stability of the Instant-Grid boot process
- More documentation
- Solved NFS stability problems
- Fixed a problem, where automatic choice of a firewire interface as internal interface would lead to problems with name resolution, routing, etc.
- Lots of smaller bugs (see changelog).
- Gridsphere and GWES cannot be used together. There is a problem with the classloader when both applications are started. Please restart tomcat with
/etc/init.d/tomcat force-stop and
/etc/init.d/tomcat start when you want to switch from one application to the other.
- Man pages still missing
- A few wrong links, debug output, etc.
