I'm doing a project on "grid Computing" and more specifically on "GRAM: job execution/resource management". I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and trying to install "Globus Toolkit 5.2.3".

For installing Globus Toolkit nothing more easy than download the corresponding package for your Ubuntu version:


wget http://www.globus.org/ftppub/gt5/5.2/5.2.3/installers/repo/globus-repository-5.2-stable-precise_0.0.3_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i globus-repository-5.2-stable-precise_0.0.3_all.deb


wget http://www.globus.org/ftppub/gt5/5.2/5.2.3/installers/repo/globus-repository-5.2-stable-quantal_0.0.3_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i globus-repository-5.2-stable-quantal_0.0.3_all.deb
