I've tried to install SSI ver 0.71 on SuSe 8. I pick up the vanilla
kernel (2.4.16) and I patch it. I've relinked all and all
seems to functions. But when I boot with the new kernel I remain stucked
after the nic configuration. Can you tell
me how can I go on ?
The main distro based differences are in the cluster-tools which
actually install different files for different distribution. If you are
using suse then you will have to get equivalent files for suse. The main
files are . rc.nodeup rc.nodedown and inittab.ssi.
Now how to go about with suse. look at the redhat/debian equivalent and
make modification to the already existing inittab on your machine.
and save it as inittab.ssi.
regarding rc.nodeup is the script that is run when the dependent node
boots. For redhat rc.sysinit.nodeup is executed where as for debian i
added a new runlevel directory called rcSSI which contain some modified
files in run level 3 and links to many files in rcS. The only place of
concern will be mounting . You can go through the rc.sysinit.nodeup
script or debian files to get an idea of what all need to be skipped
from a normal runlevel 3 startup.
Once you get it running sent the modified files to the list so that suse
also get added to the supported distro. ;-)
