Ubuntu support?

feature-request
#1

Can I ask for Ubuntu support? Or are there any install instructions for Ubuntu ? Did not see a “install from source” option either … which is a bit surprising given that the project has HPC roots ?

#2

@dipeit time permitting we can look into what it would take to support Debian-based systems natively. We have not had much demand for this so far. Can you tell us a little more about your architecture / site?

As for installation from source: our installation process used to be very manual up until our 1.3 release which is where we cut over to RPM based installation. Those installation instructions are dated, but still available for older versions: https://osc.github.io/ood-documentation/release-1.2/installation.html

I am also interested in an Ubuntu/Debian installation document or packages. Our cluster runs Ubuntu, along with most of our support servers. I can provide additional architecture information and/or some testing help if necessary.

@bmcgough and @dipeit what version(s) of Ubuntu are you running?
