Subject[ANNOUNCE] PCI-SCI Drivers (RPM and tar.gz) v1.13 Released


The Dolphin PCI-SCI (Scalable Coherent Interface) Drivers v1.13
High Speed Interconnect Drivers have been posted at:

ftp.timpanogas.org:/sci
ftp.utah-nac.org:/sci
ftp.kernel.org:/pub/linux/kernel/people/jmerkey/sci

These drivers are released under the GPL and are posted in
Red Hat Package Manager (RPM) and tar.gz formats. This release
has been tested and is current as of Linux Kernels 2.5.0 and
Linux Kernels 2.4.17. This version of the drivers has also
been tested against Red hat 7.1/7.2 Distributions.

The Dolphin PCI-SCI Interconnect adapters are used in
high-performance supercomputing environments and very
large Linux clusters.
