Mosix on slackware 7.1 (clusterPC)


Hi,
I just successful start my SlackMosix Cluster on 486 and similar.
It was not very difficult, but now I'm interested to connect a 386SX, recompiling the kernel with 2.2.18-Mosix.

Kernel say:
"Checking if this processor honours the WP bit even in supervisor mode...No.
Kernel panic: This kernel doesn't support CPU's with broken WP. Recompile it for a 386!
In swapper task - not syncing"

How can I do?

Thank you for the answer!

Mosix on Slack9

I don't know if anyone is interested, but in any case, I was able to get Mosix 1.9 to work on (2) Athlon-XP 1900s with Slack9:

Look at this

I am quite interested! Did you patch the 2.4.20 kernel manually? Where did you get the source from? From http://openmosix.sourceforge.net/?

And how difficult was it?
Thanks for your information. I am thinkking about setting up a few slackware server like that..

Here's how I did it:

1.) Download the MOSIX 1.9 2.4.20 patch from here: http://www.mosix.org/txt_distribution.html
2.) Download the MOSIX 1.9 user level Tools from that same site
3.) Patch your 2.4.20 kernel with the MOSIX 1.9 patch
4.) Config the MOSIX option with
[x] MOSIX process migration
[x] MOSIX file system
5.) Compile and install your new kernel. Reboot.
6.) Install the MOSIX 1.9 user level Tools (do a manual install according to the README)
7.) Copy the mosix.init script to /etc/rc.d/rc.mosix.
8.) Make your mfs dir. (#mkdir /mfs)
9.) Edit your /etc/fstab by adding:
mymfs /mfs mfs defaults 0 0
10.) Start MOSIX (#/etc/rc.d/rc.mosix start)
11.) MOSIX will prompt you to create your mosix.map file. Add your nodes as follows:
1 192.168.1.1 1
2 192.168.1.2 1
etc.
12.) Start MOSIX again. You should see "Initializing MOSIX..."
13.) Install MOSIX on your other node(s) in the exact same way with the exact same kernel version and MOSIX patch/user level tools (otherwise, and I guarantee you, MOSIX will not work!)
14.) Reboot your machines. Pull-up a terminal and do #mon. You will see a bar-graph monitor of all machine nodes.
15.) Peruse /mfs/node-number to access the filesystems on your other nodes.
16.) Enjoy!

It wasn't really that difficult. I actually have a Gentoo box on the second node and the Slack9 box on the first node, so you can mix-and-match distros as long as you maintain the same kernel+MOSIX versions.

Good luck!
