Silicon Graphics today announced another high-performance computing first: the world's largest computer to operate under a single copy of the Linux OS. On its SGI Altix 4700 blade platform and a beta version of Novell SUSE Enterprise Linux Ver. 10, Silicon Graphics Inc. (SGI) demonstrated a single system image (SSI) running on a world-record 1,024 processors breaking a prior record of 512 processors, also held by SGI. The system is now installed in Munich, Germany, at the Leibinz Rechen-Zentrum (LRZ) centre. LRZ houses Germany's National Supercomputer System, and the Altix 4700 installation marked the completion of LRZ's Phase I deployment.

Fedora Core 5 Re-Spin for May

Fedora Unity has released the Fedora Core 5 Re-Spins for May 2006. These are DVD ISO Re-Spins of Fedora Core 5. These ISOs are based upon Fedora Core 5 and all updates released as of May 23rd, 2006. They are available for i386 and x86_64 architectures.

The Re-Spin task has been taken up by Fedora Unity to provide the Community with the chance to install Fedora Core with recent updates, which might otherwise be several hundred megabytes of downloads, already included. The Fedora Unity Project intends to release early and release often, with new Re-Spins provided early each month during the life of each Fedora Core release until that release is transferred to Fedora Legacy.
