In the previous labs you installed the operating system RedHat Linux 7.1  and transformed the individual PCs into one working PC cluster. However, successfully building a PC cluster is not the end of the game. To ready such a cluster for you to do useful work on, the next step will be to install some of the common software packages and various numerical libraries. You will learn how to do this in this lab.


Installation of Several Popular Packages


For the various software packages and numerical libraries, we are very grateful to all the contributors of LINUX and also people from the following sites.
