High Performance Linux Kernel Project - LinuxDNA

Thaidog writes "I thought Slashdot would be interested in our high performance Linux kernel project "linuxDNA". I am heading up a project to get a current kernel version to compile with the Intel ICC compiler and we have finally had success in creating a kernel! The website for the project is: www.linuxdna.com All the instructions to compile the kernel are there (geared towards Gentoo but obviously it can work on any Linux) and it is relatively easy for anyone with the skills to compile a kernel to get it working. We see this as a great project for high performance clusters, gaming and scientific computing. The hopes are to maintain a kernel source along side the current kernel... the mirror has 2.6.22 on it currently because there are a few changes after .22 that make compiling a little harder for the average Joe (but not impossible) Here is our first story in Linux Journal: http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/linuxdna-supercharges-linux-intel-cc-compiler"
