Documentation about openMosixview There is a full HTML-documentation about openMosixview included in every package. You find the startpage of the documentation in your openMosixview installation directory: openmosixview/openmosixview/docs/en/index.html

The RPM-packages have their installation directories in: /usr/local/openmosixview

10.3.1. Installation of the RPM-distribution

Download the latest version of openMosixview rpm-package. Then just execute e.g.:

rpm -i openmosixview-1.4.rpm 
This will install all binaries in /usr/bin To uninstall:
rpm -e openmosixview 

10.3.2. Installation of the source-distribution

Download the latest version of openMosixview and unzip+untar the sources and copy the tarball to e.g. /usr/local/.

gunzip openmosixview-1.4.tar.gz 
tar -xvf openmosixview-1.4.tar 

10.3.3. Automatic setup-script

Just cd to the openmosixview-directory and execute

./setup [your_qt_2.3.x_installation_directory] 

10.3.4. Manual compiling

Set the QTDIR-Variable to your actual QT-Distribution, e.g.

export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt-2.3.0 (for bash) 
or 
setenv QTDIR /usr/lib/qt-2.3.0 (for csh) 

10.3.5. Hints

(from the testers of openMosixview/Mosixview who compiled it on different linux-distributions, thanks again) Create the link /usr/lib/qt pointing to your QT-2.3.x installation e.g. if QT-2.3.x is installed in /usr/local/qt-2.3.0

ln -s /usr/local/qt-2.3.0 /usr/lib/qt 
Then you have to set the QTDIR environment variable to
export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt (for bash) 
or 
setenv QTDIR /usr/lib/qt (for csh) 
After that the rest should work fine:
./configure 
make 
then do the same in the subdirectory openmosixcollector, openmosixanalyzer, openmosixhistory and openmosixviewprocs. Copy all binaries to /usr/bin
cp openmosixview/openmosixview /usr/bin 
cp openmosixviewproc/openmosixviewprocs/mosixviewprocs /usr/bin 
cp openmosixcollector/openmosixcollector/openmosixcollector /usr/bin 
cp openmosixanalyzer/openmosixanalyzer/openmosixanalyzer /usr/bin 
cp openmosixhistory/openmosixhistory/openmosixhistory /usr/bin 
And the openmosixcollector init-script to your init-directory e.g.
cp openmosixcollector/openmosixcollector.init /etc/init.d/openmosixcollector 
or 
cp openmosixcollector/openmosixcollector.init /etc/rc.d/init.d/openmosixcollector 
Now copy the openmosixprocs binary on each of your cluster-nodes to /usr/bin/openmosixprocs
rcp openmosixprocs/openmosixprocs your_node:/usr/bin/openmosixprocs 
You can now execute mosixview
openmosixview
