Hi,<br><br>I'd suggest asking this on the <a href="http://kernel.org">kernel.org</a> maillists, Since i don't think LVS clustering has many special requirements on the kernel.<br><br>Any new fresh kernel 1.6.18 might need a bunch of security/stability fixes, But on the other hand , the
2.6.17 kerne should allready have received most of those simple fixes, and shoud thus be stable.<br><br>Maybe if you need special patches (no-arp), that only support a fixed set of kernels, then you need to look for a special kernel version, but that depends on your patches.
<br><br>I'm running a cluster of 6 dl360's (g1), so your's looks like a beast next to mine :P<br><br>with regards<br>Jan<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 10/16/06, <b class="gmail_sendername">Christopoulos Panagiwtis

<p>I build a cluster for Technological Institute of Athens, here, in Greece, with gentoo. My hardware is sixteen HP DL380 with 3.00GHz Xeon(do not laugh, I know that my cluster is too small for those you design and maintain). I read in gentoo hpc documentantion that I have to install the pure vanilla-sources but I have problem to decide the best version.
<a href="http://220.127.116.11" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">18.104.22.168</a> is out but I think that it' s not a good idea to install the latest kernel, so, I would like to tell me your opinion(eg, I think debian is using
2.6.8(too old!)) </p>
<p>I'm still a student of computers science in Athens, so, don't find my question silly plz :p</p>
