Here are my "hold your mouth right" instructions. Deviate at your own risk.
* Get pacman, untar, cd, and run setup.sh.
* Make an installation directory (like mkdir $HOME/vdt) and cd into it. Don't run Pacman in $HOME--it copies everything in the current working directory into post-install, which could be awful if you run from $HOME.
* Fedora Core 7 is not supported by the VDT, so do the pacman pretend:
cd $HOME/vdt (if not there already)
pacman -pretend-platform Fedora-4
* Install Globus clients (you are still in $HOME/vdt):
pacman -get http://vdt.cs.wisc.edu/vdt_181_cache:Globus-Client
Answer no to installing VDT certs. We will get TG certs in a minute, and the VDT certs seem to have some problems.
* Install MyProxy (still in $HOME/vdt):
pacman -get http://vdt.cs.wisc.edu/vdt_181_cache:MyProxy
* Install GSIOpenSSH (still in $HOME/vdt):
pacman -get http://vdt.cs.wisc.edu/vdt_181_cache:GSIOpenSSH
* Set your $GLOBUS_LOCATION and source $GLOBUS_LOCATION/etc/globus-user-env.sh.
* Get the TG certificates:
* wget http://security.teragrid.org/docs/teragrid-certs.tar.gz
Unpack these in $HOME/.globus/certificates/
* I didn't like the Condor installation I got from Pacman. This should be done for now with the old condor-configure command on a direct download.
* Also make sure pacman didn't set $X509_CERT_DIR. This had some self-signed certs that caused myproxy-logon to myproxy.teragrid.org to fail and overrode my .globus and /etc/grid-security certificate locations.
