Date Generated July 13 / 2012
Date Tested July 13 / 2012
Release Revision # r3742
Release Candidate bccd-3.1.1-RC

Summary

--This ISO was generated as Release Candidate to do set of testing for the new bccd-3.1.1 release. Following tickets are being resolved in these Testing ISOs:

        ISOs that fix issues:  #715, #716, #717, #718, #720, #721, #667, #685, #692, #699, #542, #638, #710, #663, #684, #649, #673, #623, #657, #665, #549, #600 

Downloading and Making Bootable USB

First Downloading the ISO form a repository on earlham cs cluster:

first downloading the script for making bootable USB drive

  $ svn co svn+ssh://mmludin08@cluster.earlham.edu/cluster/svnroot/bccd-ng/trunk/bin BCCD
  $ cd BCCD 

This is where the the script exits for making bootable USB from BCCD ISO

Download the ISO from appropriate links

--64-Bit

  $ wget http://cluster.earlham.edu/bccd-ng/testing/mobeen/Release-Candidates/bccd-3.1.1-amd64-RC.iso.md5
  $ wget http://cluster.earlham.edu/bccd-ng/testing/mobeen/Release-Candidates/bccd-3.1.1-amd64-RC.iso

--32-Bit

  $ wget http://cluster.earlham.edu/bccd-ng/testing/mobeen/Release-Candidates/bccd-3.1.1-i386-RC.iso.md5
  $ wget http://cluster.earlham.edu/bccd-ng/testing/mobeen/Release-Candidates/bccd-3.1.1-i386-RC.iso

CheckSum Report:

To see if the ISO was downloaded 100% correctly

  $ md5sum bccd-3.1.1-i386-RC.iso.md5

0f957fa050951f23b3c6fc8c11d86b06 bccd-3.1.1-amd64-RC.iso

  $ cat bccd_latest.amd64.iso.md5 

0f957fa050951f23b3c6fc8c11d86b06 bccd-3.1.1-amd64-RC.iso

  $ md5sum bccd_latest.i386.iso

0f957fa050951f23b3c6fc8c11d86b06 bccd-3.1.1-amd64-RC.iso

  $ cat bccd_latest.i386.iso.md5 

0f957fa050951f23b3c6fc8c11d86b06 bccd-3.1.1-amd64-RC.iso

Second Making Bootable USB

The next step will be to insert the 4G USB drive (the Intel one) into the machine, wait a couple seconds, and then do

   $ sudo ./build_bootable_USB.sh /dev/sdb bccd-3.1.1-amd64-RC.iso

This is the usual procedure for running the script. The thing that can vary is /dev/sdb; usually this will be the location of the USB, but if there is another USB connected it might actually be /dev/sdc.

NOTE: To see find out the memory partitions run the following command:

   $ ls /dev/sd*

or

    $ dmesg

ISO TESTING REPORT

LIVEMODE --From USB

64-bit

All the Modules including HPL, and CUDA are working fine under both openmpi and mpich2.

Network Managment

     $ bccd-nic-setup 
     $ sudo /bin/bccd-reset-network 

worked fine: and generated no errors.


Liberating BCCD

$ sudo perl /root/liberate.pl --libdev /dev/sda

Liberation pased 77 out of 78 tests. Test # 8 failed.

not ok 8 - Set LVM PV partition type.

LIBERATED -- From Hard Disk

64-bit

Network Setup Managment

$ bccd-nic-setup $ sudo /bin/bccd-reset-network

Network setup workd smoothly. No Errors.

PXE-BOOTING

- PXE-Booting is working.

- All the Modules both compiles and run fine with openmpi and mpich2.

32-bit

Network Setup Managment

$ bccd-nic-setup $ sudo /bin/bccd-reset-network

Network setup workd smoothly. No Errors. PXE-Booting worked fine.

   - Most of the Modules Worked fine, under the 32-bit software. CUDA needed some changes to its Makefile --machines 64 to 32.
   
   - CUDA: compiles fine, but does not generate the right results. for example, ./hello-world 10 10, both comlumns are 0 0 on the livemode. but on the liberated mode it works fine.  

Liberation passed all the test and, most of the things seem to be working.

Final: Comments/Suggestions/Objection/Question/?/?

I guess we are ready for cutting a new bccd-3.1.1 Release.

Great Job all.
