Compile HTCondor 8.4.3 on SLES 11 SP4

Here are some notes on compiling HTCondor 8.4.3 on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP4.


  1. Launch an SLES 11 SP4 image from the AWS Marketplace on Amazon EC2. I used an m3.xlarge instance type.
  2. # zypper in git gcc gcc-c++ pcre-devel cmake boost-test boost-devel libcurl-devel python-devel libicu-devel openssl-devel libuuid-devel libxml2-devel pam-devel libexpat-devel bison flex mozilla-nss mozilla-nss-devel openldap2 openldap2-devel xorg-x11-libX11-devel autoconf automake libtoolize libcares-devel krb5-devel pkg-config
  3. $ git clone
  4. $ cd htcondor
  5. $ git checkout V8_4_3
  6. # I was not able to get the CREAM support to compile, so I turned it off
    # Also, I had problems with the glibc external for standard universe, so I ran with CLIPPED on
  7. $ make install
    # Note that the make package target doesn't produce a correct package (lib/condor and libexec/glite/lib are missing), thats why you need to tar it up yourself
  8. Get coffee...
  9. $ mv release_dir condor-8.4.3-sles11
  10. $ tar czvf condor-8.4.3-sles11.tar.gz condor-8.4.3-sles11
