Yet another newbie question

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Vladimir J Alarcon, Dec 31, 2003.

  1. Thanks for your help on my previous plea for help, gentlemen. I've
    succeded installing Redhat 9 on two machines with dual boot (XP and Me).
    I've also set up the seed for my home network configuring network cards
    and TCP/IP protocols. Now they can ping each other with no problems. My
    question is: am I too far from being able to do parallell programing on
    them? i.e., use either MPICH or LAM to run elementary parallell codes?
    Thanks again.

  2. Thanks Jeroen. In fact I want to do parallell programing and execution.
    But, your reference to OpenMosix opens a whole new world of potential
    applications. With regards to LAM and MPICH browse through:
    http://www.lam-mpi.org/ and http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/mpi/mpich/ .

    Receive best wishes for the new year.


    : Do you want to do parallel programming and execution, or do you just
    : want to use both machines at the same time ?
    : Judging by the applications you mention, you really want parallel
    : programming (since I have no idea what those applications are, or even
    : whether they ARE applications, or maybe protocols, or languages...).

    : If, on the other hand, you want to do distributed processing, openMosix
    : is the thing.

    : But I guess you don't ;-)

  4. Thanks, and a happy new year!

    Yes, I've only this week discovered the possibilities inherent in
    openMosix, and will try to get it up and running here ASAP!
