Re: quick question
I run an openmosix cluster, and I would highly recommend learning how
to patch and build a kernel if you want to use mosix or openmosix.
What you have is the kernel patch designed for kernel 2.4.17 so you'll
need to get kernel-source-2.4.17 apply the patch then configure and
build the kernel.
I've never quite figured out the debian kernel patch package system,
so I don't usually use the packaging system for kernel hacking, though
I do use make-kpkg from the kernel-package package to genrate .deb
files of my hacked kernels. If you're using 686's or newer you can
send me mail off list and we can see if I have a pre built openmosix
kernel that would work for you.
