  • Download now (25M)
  • You can download a RPM of the kernel source (41M) for doing things like building third-party drivers against it. This kernel source is the same for all distro variants of OpenSSI. Simply install it and you can find the source under /usr/src/linux-2.4-ssi.
OpenSSI 1.2.0+ for KNOPPIX 3.6
By far, the easiest to install version of OpenSSI!! Just download the ISO image, burn to CD, and boot the first node from the CD. Other nodes can network boot using the first node as a boot server. See the README for more information.
