Lsst-dev ”shared stack” updated for devtoolset-8

The “shared stack” on lsst-dev has been refreshed so that it is now based on devtoolset-8. The new stack can be found at /software/lsstsw/stack_20191001. It currently contains weekly w_2019_38 and daily d_2019_09_30; it will be updated with new weeklies as they become available. It also contains the following “bonus” packages:

  • cx_Oracle (from Conda)
  • Git LFS (declared using EUPS)
  • dask (from Conda)
  • pyarrow (from Conda)
  • ipdb (from Conda -c conda-forge)

Please follow-up to this post with any requests for further packages to be added.

The old stack, based on devtoolset-6 and containing weeklies w_2019_12 through w_2019_38 and daily w_2019_09_30 will remain available at /software/lsstsw/stack_20190330 for the time being, but won’t be regularly updated.

/software/lsstsw/stack will always be a symlink to the latest stack.

Refer to the Refer to the Developer Guide for further details.

The link referenced to the Developer Guide goes to an outdated version. I think it should have linked to the current version which references devtoolset-8:
