PelicanHPC is an open source Debian-based Live CD Linux operating system with a goal to make it simple to set up a high performance computing cluster.
The front-end node (either a real computer or a virtual machine) boots from the CD image.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Octave 3.6.3, dynare 4.3.1, some updates to the econometrics stuff, and also the usual sync to Debian. This release is mainly to incorporate package updates from Debian. A note: PelicanHPC is based on Debian stable (squeeze), and is made using live-build v2.x. Before too long, the testing version of Debian (wheezy) will become stable. To make live images with wheezy, you need to use live-build v3.x. The build script for PelicanHPC will need to be adapted to use live-build 3.x. I doubt that I will have time/interest to do that, so if anyone would like to take on the job, feel free to go for it.
