This new version makes use of systemd-run. In order to use it correctly sudo will need to be configured for the boinc user. This can be done with the prepare_theory_native_environment script.

A special thanks goes to computezrmle for this contribution.

For suspend/resume to work you will need to use a new cgroups script

https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=4971

`sudo wget http://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/download/create-boinc-cgroup2 -O /sbin/create-boinc-cgroup`

Please restart the client after downloading this file.

`sudo systemctl restart boinc-client`

Do you have any idea why the file is not deleted? I do not see the same behavior on my machine (Ubuntu 23.04).

Thanks for the feedback. I have fixed the issue and made some changes so hopefully suspend/resume will now work.

Post:
Sorry for the lack of communication. The Xtrack application is a new version of Sixtrack which supports GPUs. It is currently work in progress. The current status is that the application has been deployed correctly in the server and seems to be running. We hope to continue testing within the next few weeks.

This was the plan. Ideally the switch would be done before the bootstrap script. Something like updating the /sbin to /cmvfs link. Was going to think about later so any ideas would be welcome.

@Laurence
The CMS vdi currently in use sets this link in /usr/sbin/bootstrap:
/cvmfs/grid.cern.ch/vc/vm-qa/sbin/bootstrap-idtoken

bootstrap-idtoken sets this variable:
branch=qa

If it was the intention to implement a switch dev/prod it will not work.


I recently implemented a switch for ATLAS that solves the same objective:
https://github.com/davidgcameron/boinc-scripts/blob/master/vbox/ATLASbootstrap.sh#L41-L45

It could easily be rewritten and tested for CMS.
Just give me a "go".

No, I spoke to Jakob about this. He said that the values in the contextualization should overwrite the kernel values soon after the VM boots. They should get fixed in new CernVM release.
