Put the package you want to add in:
Where arch is your architecture ("i386", "ia64", etc).
Create a new XML configuration file that will extend the current compute.xml configuration file:
# /home/install/site-profiles/4.0.0/nodes # cp skeleton.xml extend-compute.xml
Inside extend-compute.xml, add the package name by changing the section from:
<package> <!-- insert your package name here --> </package>
<package> your package </package>
It is important that you enter the base name of the package in extend-compute.xml and not the full name.
For example, if the package you are adding is named XFree86-100dpi-fonts-4.2.0-6.47.i386.rpm, input XFree86-100dpi-fonts as the package name in extend-compute.xml.
If you have multiple packages you'd like to add, you'll need a separate <package> tag for each. For example, to add both the 100 and 75 dpi fonts, the the following lines should be in extend-compute.xml:
Now build a new Rocks distribution. This will bind the new package into a RedHat compatible distribution in the directory /home/install/rocks-dist/....
# cd /home/install # rocks-dist dist
Now, reinstall your compute nodes.
