RE: [Linux-cluster] SAN file system to be shared to multiple nodes

You most likely want a 2.6 kernel based system. AFAIK redhat gfs
in a developer version is free to download, all GPL?

Hello Lon,
    Ok. I'm fine with it not packages directly with Slackware. However
there are a few concerns that I have in meeting this demand that I have
this SAN working in 2 weeks time. ;) (Damn bosses).

    Anyways, I know there is kinda two versions of GFS. The Redhat GFS
or the OpenGFS project.  I'm fine with OpenGFS and getting that to work.

However the first things that I come across are kernel patches to make
this work.  Is there any kernel patches for 2.4.26 kernels. I noticed
its 2.4.20 and 2.4.22 but nothing for 2.4.26. 

    Who is the best to contact for support on OpenGFS?  Sounds like the
project is well, dead at the moment.....
