Re: Problem adding starcluster to existing image
This archive was generated by
The main reason is that I have spent a lot of time customizing the
particular image I'm working with. I need to either layer on that
customization to a starcluster image or layer on starcluster to the
customized image -- it seems to me that the latter is easier. I was
thinking that there would be a set of packages to install for starcluster,
such as gridengine, but I couldn't find such a list.
I'll install gridengine and determine if that helps.
