    great news! I'll try as soon as its available.
    I have an embryonic blcr integration with grid engine on hardy now.  It 
    uses the application-level checkpoint environment, and a special 
    starter_method to take care of blcr restarts.  It checkpoints/restarts 
    unmodified applications.  If there is interest I can post what I did here; 
    the information out there for blcr with grid engine seems a little dated
    and uses only userdefined environments leaving all the work to the user 
    job scripts.
    If any grid engine pros are listening, how does one add a fully configured 
    checkpointing environment, i.e. something like "cray-ckpt", but for blcr 
    on linux?  I guess that would do away with the modified starter_method I 
    currently have.
    Cheers, Stefan
