Installing ARC 6
We recommend to install ARC release using the Nordugrid repository.
* Start with the basics:
* Get production ready:
Note that if you instead install from EPEL for RHEL 7 compatible systems,
the ARC 6 packages can be found as nordugrid-arc6-* and not nordugrid-arc-*
This was needed in order to supply both ARC 5 already available for RHEL7 and the new ARC 6.
We provide binary builds for all supported versions of
* Debian (i386 and amd64)
* Fedora (i386 and x86_64)
* CentOS EL6 (i386 and x86_64) and EL7/EL8 (x86_64)
* Ubuntu (i386 and amd64, both LTS and interim releases)
In addition we build nightly packages for older platforms.
Future support of ARC 5-series
Note that now that ARC 6 is released, we will only provide security updates of ARC 5.
In particular:
1) No new feature development is planned or going on for ARC5 and no bug-fixing development
will happen on ARC5 code base in the future except for security issues.
2) Security fixes for ARC5 will be provided till end of June 2020.
3) Production Sites already running ARC 5 will be able to get deployment and configuration
troubleshooting help via GGUS till end June 2021. This we call "operational site support".
4) ARC5 is available in EPEL7 and will stay there. EPEL8 will only contain ARC 6.
