I would be interested in knowing results. I installed Openmosix on LTSP
server and built another server in the same subnet with aim of providing
more processing power. It worked but strange problem that came through
was that the OO / Gedit sessions would suddenly die. My understanding
was that this happened whenever load was transferred from one machine to
another. Did not test with other applications as this was live server
and users started howling. So switched it back to booting normal kernel.
Have put the project on hold till have more time on hand. Had this
worked then I would have tried Openmosix on clients.
