Having used openmosix in the past, I remember that anything using shared memory doesn't migrate. That includes things like 'X' (the core server) as well as mozilla. Not sure whether boinc would migrate.

You'd still be limited to running N separate boinc processes on your 'central' machine and hoping they'd migrate to N other machines. No speedup over logging on to each machine manually and starting boinc on each one.

OpenMosix only migrates work to other machines at the process level (not e.g. thread level) as I recall. So since boinc is one process, that still hogs 100% of 1 machine.

The only advantage I see (if you can get it to work) is ease of administration - log into a single machine and control many. But then, couldn't you achieve all that with a few 'ssh remotemachine /usr/local/boinc/boinc_xxxx' commands.

Currently the 'viz' application is a bit annoying because you have to 'cd' to the correct folder first.

Changing the 'viz' script as follows fixes this. Now you can run 'viz' from anywhere. This also makes it easier to put a shortcut to 'viz' on the desktop.

cd `dirname $0`
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd`:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
nice -n19 ./hadsm3viz_4.04* $1
