Update for 2.5.2. Also updated service file for slurmd - was set run after slurmctld only which is fine on the main server but not on the nodes.

And v2.5.1 is out ;)

That's probably because v2.4.5 is not the "latest" version.
After reporting, they added a folder containing all releases.
The URL is:

FYI: the pkgbuild currently fails to build because of a 404 Not Found when trying to download the upstream source.

... but I guess one could add separate packages:

slurm-llnl-slurmd (compute node)
slurm-llnl-slurmctld (master node)
slurm-llnl-slurmdbd (database daemon)

@giddie: +1

would also be nice to choose whether to use postgresql / mysql depending on whether or not which db backend is chosen

I wonder if gtk2 could be made an optdepends? If this were a binary package, and it had been built against gtk2, it would obviously need to be a hard dependency, but since this is on the AUR and it actually builds fine without GTK2, maybe it could be optional?

(I always tweak the PKGBUILD to remove gtk2 manually as my cluster is headless, but would be nice if this weren't necessary.)

Update for 2.4.5

iirc the old rc.d slurm file started slurmd as user slurm and that was no problem afaik

i figure munge is responsible for the auth stuff anyway

other resource and job management systems have no problem with running the node-daemons without root so i figure why should slurm

The slurmd daemon runs on all nodes in a cluster. In order for it to be able to launch jobs as an arbitrary user, it needs to be run as root.

On the other hand, slurmctld does not need root privileges and runs as user slurm.
