Hi there,

  I am struggling to get cdash working on sf.net server. For some
reason I am (and my coworkers) are experiencing some refersh problem.
One need to manually refresh the page to get things right.
  I am not an expert in this kind of things, so I wonder why firefox
thinks the page was not updated, ref:


  For instance it is right now 10:46 as display on my computer, but
cdash display 'Thursday, August 13 2009 08:42:09 UTC'...

  The only trick to get cdash working on sf.net is to symlink writable
directory to another path

lrwxrwxrwx  1 malat csmtk    41 Aug  4 08:31 backup ->
lrwxrwxrwx  1 malat csmtk    38 Aug  3 15:47 rss ->

  I made sure to copy an empty cdash.log file in backup, as cdash only
appends to this file but never actually creates it. But other than
that the installation went pretty straighforward.

Thanks for pointers...
