Yes i use it on my two node alpha Linux cluster with Debian. Latest
release may not work on Alpha. I had verified till the last 2.4.18 linux
kernel release. The latest openSSI release is on 2.4.20-20.9 redhat
BTW redhat releases doesn't build on Alpha. You can use the Vanilla
release. Get the release under this heading.
"Get OpenSSI 0.9.8 for vanilla GNU/Linux. Based on the Linux 2.4.18
kernel. Runs on Debian."
There is also a sample .config file which i use in the CVS repository at
If you are interested in CVS ( I use CVS most of the time ) check out
cvs with TRUNK-GOOD tag.
