Description Neal Becker 2007-08-29 23:00:47 UTC
Spec URL: https://nbecker.dyndns.org/RPM/blcr-0.6.0_b7-2.spec

Description: Berkeley Lab Checkpoint/Restart for Linux (BLCR)

This package implements system-level checkpointing of scientific applications
in a manner suitable for implementing preemption, migration and fault recovery
by a batch scheduler.

BLCR includes documented interfaces for a cooperating applications or
libraries to implement extensions to the checkpoint system, such as
consistent checkpointing of distributed MPI applications.
Using this package with an appropriate MPI implementation, the vast majority
of scientific applications which use MPI for communucation on Linux clusters
are checkpointable without any modifications to the application source code.

You must also install the %{name}-libs package and a %{name}-modules_* package
matching your kernel version.

Updated spec to fix rpmlint complaints


Comment 2 Jason Tibbitts 2007-09-06 22:56:51 UTC
If this contains kernel modules, you really should read over
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/Policy/KernelModules and
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/KernelModules and you should also be
aware of the current proposals working their way through the process, such as

Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2007-09-13 18:05:33 UTC
So it has come to pass that Fedora will no longer accept external kernel module
packages.  So either your modules are destined for the upstream kernel, in which
case there's a possibility that they could be patched into the Fedora kernel
package, or this package is simply not appropriate for Fedora.

I guess there's not much more to do here but close this ticket.
