Hi
My interest is debian. However I don't know where to start.
I would like to build on something newer than version 1.9.1. The comming new version (etch) of  debian will probably be based on kernel 2.6.17. (or 2.6.18) I think it would be nice if OpenSSI for debian was using that kernel too.
Though we are working on different platforms, I presume that many of the files are the same, so if somebody is checking in a file for SUSE or RH then it somehow will be avaible on branch OPENSSI-DEBIAN too.
Am I right?

Hi,

X86_64 code appears to be available and working under the Stable release 1.2 for RH, work done by John Byrne. I haven't tried it but I am using the sources to help in my x86_64 port to 1.9.2 OpenSSI to a 2.6.12.2 kernel on SUSE 9.2. I am expecting to have the port completed and running in the December time frame. Hopefully stable by March. I am only two 1/2 weeks into the port of kernel and still have the user level code to build and verify. The planed port will include a 64 bit version of UDEV-068 or higher and Multipath-tools 0.4.7 or higher.

I am interested in a port for x86_64, unfortunately I am not experienced
enough to do the work alone.
However John Steinman seems to be working on it but have not updated CVS
with his changes.
