Does anyone on the list have any experience with TerraSoft's Black Lab
As many of you may recall, I am a big fan of 'software that sucks less'
-- to quote a
wonderful Scyld T-shirt I once saw. Imagine my surprise, then, when I
TerraSoft (promulgators of YellowDog and BlackLab Linux for PPC) is
new version (2.2) of BlackLab that is based on BProc.
Is this good news? I think it could be for TerraSoft ; this move is a
big upgrade from
their earlier offering which reminded me of the Dark Times in
(Does anyone else still remember when we had to set up .rhosts files
our copy of PVM out of someone else's home directory and copy it into
I'd like to see what BlackLab's story is. but I have been unable to
find any of the
sources for this product available for download. In particular, I would
like to know:
* Does it use beonss?
* Does it use beoboot?
* Does it netboot remote Macintoshes?
* What version of BProc does it use?
* How did they do MPI? Did they crib Don's version
of MPICH for BProc?
Additionally, I'm looking for good ideas which can be adapted to a
toy I wrote years ago called 'mpi-mandel'. They tout a similar program
I was hoping to have a peek at it. Does anyone know if their similar
is available under the GPL?
If anyone on this forum has experience with this product, I would
your feedback. If anyone can furnish me with the sources or links for
MPI, beoboot, and mandelbrot program, I would be grateful.
