There is no machine type for Linux/Alpha under PVM as yet that I know of.
As far as I remember, If you set machine type to Alpha it compiles
cleanly but doesn't work, if you set machine type to Linux
it assumes x86 arch and doesn't work.
I've successfully used PVM with machine types, PMAX, SUNMP
(Multiprocessor SPARC), ALPHA (OSF/1),
SGIMP(8 Processor Power Challenge) and Linux (x86) so I don't think it is
a bad config, just not ported yet.
I am thinking of porting/adding a machine type for Linux Alpha and (Dual
If there is a later version of PVM with machine types for either of the
above I'd really like the URL...Please !
I'll post patches if I get it working, if anyone wants it.
