18.1. Introduction

this part has been written by Amit Shah

There's not much documentation available right now for the kernel. I hope to write some in the coming weeks. Anyways, here's how the sources are laid out:

The openMosix code resides largely in hpc/ and include/hpc. There are lots of patches to the core kernel files everywhere, right from the arch/i386 directories to mm/, fs/, etc. You need to read up the code which interests you and think that would matter for the present situation (that shouldn't be a problem, since you've done kernel coding).

here's what you should expect in each of the source files:

the other files like auto_syscalls.c, alternate.c are generated at compile time.
