FAQ #3037: “no rolling release”.

Thanks Manfred. Is there a way to obtain the build script used for SLURM 20.02 so that I can construct the package for site-specific use myself?

By that I mean an ubuntu-specific debian package with all the appropriate ./configure options - I've looked a for a build log for 20.02, but no luck yet.

The build script is the "rules" file in the debian directory inside the slurm-llnl_(version).debian.tar.xz archive.

You should use the Ubuntu (Debian) build tools, they make building the package easier.

see e.g. or

Thanks Manfred, that'll probably be all I need :-)
