Building a linux swarm cluster

I have a number of smaller/ less powerful linux boxes at my disposal, and I have been trying to cluster them for swarm coordination. The problem I am having is can’t seem to make swarm-mono work with them. Is there some trick to it?

Can anyone point me to a wiki/tut or even in the right direction?

While I am on it, is there any update to the Official C++ swarm rebuild, ETA or otherwise?
