[slurm-users] Slurm 17.11 X11 support questions

Thanks Marcus.  I thought I had installed that dependency, but I guess I installed it somewhere other than where I was compiling slurm at.  Once installed it compiled with x11 support.

However, now I have another problem.  I am able to start an x11 job using the command: `srun --pty --x11 bash` but no programs can connect to the X server.  In other words, I get "unable to connect to X server localhost:50.0".  From what I see in the logs, it looks like it is all working properly.  This is what I am seeing

Is there anything I am missing that I need to do to get x11 forwarding working?

Hi Matthew,

yes, I have.
I just needed to install libssh2-devel, then the native support will be built in:

I am trying to get my cluster's native X11 support enabled, but am having some difficulty.  I generated the RPMs for slurm, installed them on my systems, and added the "PrologFlags=X11" in the slurm.conf file as well.  However, when I start up slurmd with the flag added, I get this error:

Jan 12 16:23:52 node-01 slurmd[15904]: error: X11 forwarding not built in, cannot enable.
Jan 12 16:23:52 node-01 slurmd[15904]: fatal: PrologFlags invalid: X11

I believe I need to generate the RPMs with libssh2 support enabled, however I do not see any documentation or options available in the slurm.spec to do so.  Has anyone else been able to generate the RPMs for slurm 17.11 with X11 support enabled?
