Here we put those tricks you need sometimes to make things work on the cluster. This list will hopefully improve/grow with time.

Linux:

- increase the size of the udp packets:

  (sudo) sysctl -w net.core.rmem_max=8388608

Add this to your /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh

Windows

- cygwin

When installing cygwin:

mkpasswd -cl > /etc/passwd

mkgroup --local /etc/group

sshd: Check out http://pigtail.net/LRP/printsrv/cygwin-sshd.html

If you are a developer and you want to use cvs to checkout yarp2 with command line (linux or cygwin):

export CVS_RSH=ssh

cvs -z3 -d:ext:your_name@yarp0.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvs root/yarp0 co -P yarp2
