Problems with Suse 7.2 and MOSIX 1.0.6

Problems with Suse 7.2 and MOSIX 1.0.6

This is no ask for help ( or maybe yes ...) but rather the short
story of how I solve some problems.

I wanted to install MOSIX on four Linux machines running under Suse.
Originally they works well under Suse 7.0 with the e2fs. After I had
made good experience with the reiserfs I decided to use this
filesystem and make a new installation under Suse 7.2.

Because I have to administrate three computers from the "master" the
network services have to run properly, but for the first time they
don't under the new installed Suse 7.2. Only after I had placed the
following two links

in "/etc/rc.d" place "ln -s ./ init.d"
and in "/sbin" place "ln -s /etc/rc.d init.d"

then the mosix.install script runs without an error message.

(Besides that I have paied attention that the xinetd daemon starts
correctly (only from runlevel 3 and higher) and the rest of the
administration is also correct (root have access via telnet and is
uncomment in the /etc/ftpusers)

O.k. thats all




1. SuSe 7.2 makes SuSe 7.1 look like beta software and Mandrake 8 like alpha.

Hey guys I just finished installing SuSe 7.2 personal edition which I
picked up at CompUSA today. I got to say that even though I was a Mandrake
fan I am about to switch loyalties and become a SuSe fan. right now I don't
no where to start but everything about SuSe 7.2 just screams ready for
prime time. Installation was one of the slickest looking Linux  installs I
have every seen. It beats Mandrake hands down and makes windoze look very

SuSe 7.2 is fast and stable and every thing from my Creative Live Drive (
which Mandrake never ever detected ) to my NIC 3COM 3c905-TX card was
detected and worked from the start. I updated via SuSe's online update tool
which handled everything automaticly ( I was to lazy to do it manually )
and flawlessly.  Am happy to say that SuSe has won me over and M$ better
watch it's back because if other distro's start looking and acting like
SuSe then it's going to run into a lot of problems in upcoming years from

P.S. The only flaw I find with SuSe is that they make it very diffuclt find
and download the free version. Now am going to see if I can install this on
an old Packard Bell P5 200 mhz system I got laying around here somewhere.
Oh yeah here are my specs of my current system :

AMD 1.2 ghz cpu

Asus A7M 761 motherboard


64mb DDR-SDRAM LeadTek WinFast Geforce 2 GTS Pro card

Creative Sound Blaster X-Gamer sound card
