Re: [K12OSN] openmosix on K12LTSP V2.1

Looks like they've moved the listing for the 2.4.16-openmosix5 kernels and
patches off of the SourceForge site, but they are still available if you
click on the links in the "LTSP+OpenMosix: A Mini How-To" (Revision 3.3)
under the "Files needed in this example" section (3-6).  They are still
available for download even though they are not listed any more.

openMosix-kernel-2.4.18-1 is currently the latest release, along with the
userland tools openmosix-user 0.2.2-Birthday. You could use the 2.4.18
releases for your server and build new client kernels (as my now dated
how-to indicates).  But you would need to study out the userland tools to
find out which to copy where and how to use them (not as difficult as it

Note, if you are going to use the OM 2.4.18 kernels you need to use the
later userland tools.  The RPMS I list apply to the 2.4.16 set.  I have
applied the How-To (openMosix 2.4.16 & 2.4.17 [with userland mods]) to the
latest stable K12LTSP distro without anything breaking so I would say it's
still valid to date--but I really do need to update the doc...
