"Could" Porteus run on this?

I recently bought this (w/ 32gb DDR3)... 8)
http://webwarper.net/ww/~av/www.asrock. ... dex.us.asp

I'm considering using it in a heterogeneous Beowulf "jungle" cluster w/ the Parallella.
If Porteus could run on Parallella I will pick one up.

Porteus works on x86 only. no plans for ARM port yet.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

@blue:
Did you bought your device?

These two links might be interesting for you:
1) the different linux software running on parallella:
http://elinux.org/Parallella_Software
2) arm software slackware:

Hi... Francois.

Not yet. I'm on my 5th prototype of my 2 node cluster. :fool:
I still don't have the frontend strategy right on my 1u rack2tower dual mITX.

Because OCZ went out of business it's not easy to find low profile memory with a heatsink instead of heat spreader.

Plus I've already fried one Zotac mITX by overclocking and using a Zalman lowprofile heatsink. :wall:
So I may need to also add CPU shims... thermal foam and graphene pads... and a Peltier plate.
Graphene
Thermoelectric cooling

I bought 2 AsRock mITX mobo's but that approach led to Zotac (Cuda)
Now I'm switching from Zotac nVidia Ion "next generation" mITX
to Asus nVidia Ion "next generation" (it uses DDR3).
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AT5IONTI/

Unfortunately... Intel and nVidia aren't friends anymore so these mobo's are hard to find.

Alas... I have no choice if I want to use 64bit nVidia Cuda (parallel supercomputing) :cry:
on Porteus w/ my 1u server rig. Cuda can be found @ pkgs.org.
CUDA

Outstanding work Francois... Bravo!!! :Yahoo!:
Based on your info I might pick up 4 Parallella's next week.

I forgot to add Ahau is the sole inspiration for my project.
Unfortunately... I haven't seen any recent posts from him on this topic.

Best Regards... :beer:
