Update services (esp. sge_execd and sge_qmaster)
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:19:17 EST
It'd be nice to get an updated services into F8. I'm particularly interested in
having sge_execd and sge_qmaster present.
Reassigning to gridengine component.
Is there a mechanism for individual packages to add entries to /etc/services?
I though setup handled /etc/services?
sge_qmaster 6444/tcp Grid Engine Qmaster Service
sge_qmaster 6444/udp Grid Engine Qmaster Service
sge_execd 6445/tcp Grid Engine Execution Service
sge_execd 6445/udp Grid Engine Execution Service
Unfortunately not. glibc only reads /etc/services (resp. the db in case you
change your configuration), so there is no such thing as a /etc/services.d/
And yes, setup handles /etc/services. The problem is that the IANA upstream file
contains some entries that can't be handled by glibc and additionally the order
of the /etc/services file we ship is partially optimized for common uses of
services so that lookups for those work as fast as possible.
I'll be doing the manual update for /etc/services to the latest upstream version
in the next few days which then should include the Grid related services, too.
Read ya, Phil
