Linux (as root)¶
For ease of installation on Linux, we provide a script that will automatically download, install and start HTCondor.
Quickstart Installation Instructions¶
RedHat systems must be attached to a subscription.
Debian and Ubuntu containers don’t come with
curlinstalled, so run the following first.
apt-get update && apt-get install -y curl
The command below shows how to download the script and run it immediately; if you would like to inspect it first, see Inspecting the Script. The default behavior will create a complete HTCondor pool with its multiple roles on one computer, referred to in this manual as a “minicondor.” Experienced users who are making an HTCondor pool out of multiple machines should add a flag to select the desired role; see the Administrative Quick Start Guide for more details.
curl -fsSL https://get.htcondor.org | sudo /bin/bash -s -- --no-dry-run
If you see an error like
bash: sudo: command not found, try re-running
the command above without the
Inspecting the Script
If you would like to inspect the script before you running it on your system as root, you can:
compare the script to the versions in our GitHub repository;
or run the script as user
nobody, dropping the
--no-dry-runflag. This will cause the script to print out what it would do if run for real. You can then inspect the output and copy-and-paste it to perform the installation.
Verifying a Single-Machine Installation
You can easily check to see if the installation procedure succeeded. The following commands should complete without errors, producing output that looks like the corresponding example.
