The full name for our software stack is the “Intel® Many Integrated Core (MIC) Platform Software Stack.” Users often call it MPSS for short. It is dependent on the 2.6.34 Linux kernel, and it has been tested to work with specific versions of 64-bit Red Hat Enterprise 6.0, 6.1, and 6.2, as well as SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 SP1. The readme.txt file has more information on how to build and install the stack.
