Simultaneous startup of UML nodes has a problem. This may not be just a
UML-related problem, but the current state of the repository. Allow the
first node to boot fully before joining the next node.
In addition to what appears to be a generic problem joining nodes; the
node-monitor code may have additional problems due to the sluggishness
of uml_switch. Some further investigation into alleviating this is
I am currently uploading to our contrib directory a slightly different
138004480 bytes) that fixes a couple of problems. It should complete in
the next hour or so.
If you use the previous version of the root_fs, any nodes other than the
first will hang in the rc networking startup. I will be deleting the
older root_fs momentarily.
I added the file ssiuml-3.tar.m5sum to the contrib directory to allow
you to verify your download.
