1) Message boards : ATLAS application : Ubuntu 20.04 support? (Message 44637)
Posted 1 Apr 2021 by jakob
Regarding the cvmfs 18.04 packages: they are selected by the cvmfs-release package, which is responsible for picking a suitable package repository. It uses
to figure out where it runs. Officially, only the Ubuntu LTS releases are supported. So, "focal" is a recognized release but "ulyssa" is not. For unsupported distributions, the cvmfs-release tries to fall back to a package repository with compatible binaries. In this case, it picks the repository with the 18.04 binaries. While somewhat less than perfect, these binaries should nevertheless work fine on Mint 20, so there is nothing to worry about.
