macports on xserve cluster

Description (last modified by raimue (Rainer Müller))

I could not find information how/if macports will work on a cluster?

It means that you install macports on a head node shared drive and its available through mounting the shared drive on compute nodes ?

What can be done now?

We don't have a "cluster" specific configuration as such, but there certainly are ways in which MacPorts can be built in a more confined fashion so that it becomes share'able across a network through a single volume. Off the top of my head, you need to pass a custom --with-tclpackage flag to the configure script so that the macports1.0 package also gets installed into your confined location, presumably within your installation ${prefix}, and not onto the default /Library/Tcl path.

Don't recall at the moment if there are other things that you need to relocate off their default paths to fully confine your MacPorts installation, so I'll assign this ticket to myself so that I can write something up for the guide or Wiki later for public consumption.
