- 
-i) Starting with SRB 2.0.0, installation procedures have been changed 
-to use the "configure" script. Please read README.build for details. 
-Starting with 2.1.1, there is now an install.pl script to handle certain  
-types of installations. 
-ii) The Sput and Sget commands support parallel I/O. But the DEFAULT I/O 
-mode is SERIAL. Please use the -m option or set the env variable "srbParallel" 
-to any value to switch the I/O mode to parallel. With 2.1, the server 
-can be configured with the number of parallel threads to use. 
-iii) The previous versions (1.1.8) of MCAT are not compatible with the 
-2.0 and 2.1 releases. At SDSC, we are starting to upgrade the MCATs 
-of various projects to 2.x. If you are using one of the MCATs at 
-SDSC, please email srb@sdsc.edu for the status of the MCAT upgrade.

The install.pl script makes it easier to do a full (but basic) installation of an SRB/MCAT system (and Postgresql/ODBC) for testing.

SBB_Install_Notes.doc is a Word document with detailed descriptions of the installation procedure written by the CCLRC e-Science Data Management Group of the UK. (If someone would like to convert this to MediaWiki and add it here, please do; it would be good to integrate the information.)

The rest of the installation instructions are based on various Readme files which are now converted into wiki format, updated, and consolidated. See:
