relabel the howto link for git, as it also contains the build directions.

Welcome to the LinuxPMI Project

What is LinuxPMI?

  • LinuxPMI is a set of Linux kernel patches implementing process "migration" over a network. its goal is to allow you to move a program from your machine to another machine, run it there for a while, and return it without it ever knowing it was gone.
  • LinuxPMI is derived from the failed, now dead OpenMosix 2.6 branch.

What are we up to?

  • The major work here is on the patch commentaries, as we document the current 2.6.17 & patch sets.
  • Some informal guidelines on patch quality levels have been developed.
  • In addition, we've been progressively breaking up the 2.6.17 patches as we commentary them, and working on the branch forward ported by g_remlin, as its commentaried.
  • We've documented a LinuxPMI Kernel Testing Procedure.
  • Uses interested in testing LinuxPMI should read the Users Guide.
  • Frequently Asked Questions go here.
  • We're using git as a Version Control System, so for directions on downloading and building, read the Git LinuxPMI HOWTO.
  • Join us on irc on freenode at #LinuxPMI!
  • Our Mailing List -- Courtesy of shogunx -- Note: we lost the user database about 02/20/2009! people should re-subscribe!
  • Our TODO list -- A good place for incoming developers to start at!
  • Status -- The last tested status of various versions.

Old OpenMosix 2.6 PRE-ALPHA Stuff

These links are to bookmarks I've found useful to reference while reading through OpenMosix source.

  • Try Asciidoc -- a page that shows you how asciidoc looks when converted to HTML. its what I'm using to test asciidoc documentation before committing to the tree.

Misc Notes

  • UnsortedInfo -- An unsorted technical dump for information google does not know yet. Not linuxPMI related.
  • GiftStuff -- information about GNU GIFT can be found here.
  • FaiKvm -- configuration directions for freshly installed machines on
