Description Need Real Name 2001-07-23 11:39:24 UTC

Wouldn't it be possible to add the mosix functionalities (www.mosix.org) in
the kernel on the RedHat distributions? Mosix allows clustering and
transparent process distribution over a cluster of machines on a network.
It would be nice to have during the RedHat installation process the choice
between for instance:
Normal Kernel or Kernel + Mosix
SMP Kernel or SMP Kernel + Mosix

Best regards

Daniel Tourde

We are seriously looking at Mosix, and it's a very good candidate for inclusion
in _a_ future version. The timing on when that will be is unknown, it also
depends on how the debate between the Mosix people and Linus is going.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-07-23 11:53:02 UTC
OK. Thanks for your answer.
That would be a great feature indeed. I don't know the nature of the debate
between Linus Torvalds and the Mosix people but i do think Mosix is a good
_a_future version?
7.2? 8.0? 17.5?... :)

I know this bug is over a year old, but I wonder if the idea of integrating
openMosix is still being considered.  I installed the 2.4.19-based openMosix
kernels on a few machines here and everything went fine, but that means I've
backed out tons of useful Red Hat kernel mods like rmap and the updated IDE drivers.

probably won't happen unless it goes into the upstream kernel.
