Install openMOSIX on Slackware 9.1


I have a 4 computer, 800MHz and up, that i'm making a cluster with. I used clusterKNOPPIX on 3 of them with the hd install. The last one is my main system which has Slackware 9.1. I'm looking for some documentation on installing openMOSIX on slackware 9.x.

Thanks
Brian

Hi,
installing openMOSIX on sw9.1 is straight forward, albeit slightly more difficult than on RH
(to date I've got it working on RH9, Fedora Core 1 and sw9.1).

Since your asking the question I'm guessing your're not confident/ aware of the compiling your own kernel route?
I shan't go into the details of compiling (that's all documented in the kernel README), but suffice to say all you need the the latest build of the 2.4.22 kernel (from www.kernel.org) and the openmosix-kernel-2.4.22 patch and openmosix-user tools (www.openmosix.org).

It's simply a matter of patching the kernel, make the bzImage, copying it to /boot, editing /etc/lilo.conf (or grub), editing etc/openmosix.map, rebooting and running /sbin/setpe. In RH you can add openmosix as a service, but if you can't be bothered to mess with the console each reboot then I guess you could edit one of the etc/rc.d/ files.

I hope this rather muddled answer has been of some help.

best regards,
MR835

Thats what i wanted to hear is that it was just strait forward. I have recompiled the kernel many times just never with openMosix. I am running 2.6.3 on all of my desktops.

Thanks
Brian
