   I'm trying to build a Linux cluster, using wackamole and mod backhand.
Current topology looks like: two machines with two interfaces connected to
the outer network with one interface each, and with the second interface to
the internal network, there is a bunch of simmilar machines in the internal
network. I've installed the Backhand (and it seems to work), Spread and
Wackamole. Actually I don't fully understand how to make the Wackamole and
spread work.
I've configured them both as shown in issues, when I run Spread, it shows
the segment, etc.
Conf_init: using file: /usr/local/spread/etc/spread.conf
Successfully configured Segment 0 [] with 3 procs:
Finished configuration file.
Conf_init: My name: test.ltk, id:, port: 4803
Membership id is ( -1062731774, 1096384359)
Configuration at test.ltk is:
Num Segments 1
        2     4803
Num of groups: 0

But when I start wackamole, nothing changes, deamon don't show any groups or
somenting. Is it OK? If not, what should be reconfigured?
If i start wackamole on a machine and then restart spread on the other one
it shows the wack1 group with 1 user (second machine). Why that?

Crurently, that's all. Thank you.
