Re: mosix-1.0 is almost out

has anyone tried to port mosix to sparc.I am asking because me and a few
friends are making a beowulf cluster of 20 sparc2's. One of us wants to
run mosix on them and was thinking about porting mosix to sparc.If anyone
else is trying it or has tried it that might be a big help to our cause.
