    Beowulf

    Does any one here have any experience with parallel programming? Specifically PVM. I am working on distributed system right now, and I had a few questions.

    Linux magazine did an article on that.
    What *specific* kind of parallel programming are you talking about?
    Asking the right question is sometimes more important than knowing the answer.

    I am using the PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) library to divide processes amongst the nodes in the cluster.

    As to what types of programs, I am game to try any. Right now we are still working on tweaking the hardware, so I am writting code that will hopefully test the overall performance of the system.

    I am still trying to sort out the hardware. Does anybody know how to share a root directory to multiple systems with nfs.

    Add an entry to the /etc/exports file to share the distribution directory you created.
