    I'm back!

    Got a new rig started with a Q8200 core 2 quad and my 8800 ultra but I haven't had the money to put in windows 7 as of yet so I'm running ubuntu 10.04. I got the smp client up and running but the graphics card is being somewhat difficult. I'm not that experienced in linux so I was wondering if someone could show me the way. I read on the official forums of a headless install. Not sure what headless even means but I think its when a graphics card is not being used with a display. Can someone confirm that? So when I tried this guide I came to a part that said because I'm running X that it can't complete a step in the process and then after shutting down X it put me into a text only prompt and I wasn't sure what to do. Is there anyone who can give me some advice on getting this client setup. It use to bring me in 5 thousand ppd so I'd really like to get it back up and running. Thanks
  2. haha that would be pretty damn cool of you. but not necessary... although if anyone comes across an xps 710 motherboard at a decent price or one that I can reuse my components and maybe just have to buy a new case that would be great
  3. A few days ago my XPS 710 went down. Pretty positive that it's the motherboard and seeing as it's no longer under warranty a new one would cost $450.00! according to dell.. which I think is pretty outrageous. So I'm thinking of finding a case/motherboard that will accept as many or all of the components that I have assuming that none of them are damaged as well... I'm about to take a nosedive on the folding charts
  4. First of all happy 4th of July! So I guess the windows smp is now expired because it would not open... and I found out there is a drop in executable so I downloaded it and placed it in the same folder as the previous one and it just hangs at "2 cores detected" what can I do?
  5. I have a pretty steady average of around 6k ppd. Havent really changed anything. Whats the deal in the 3pm update I did 9,527 and 18 wu's !! I wish I was putting up these numbers all the time. EDIT: nevermind i just had a peek at other ppls stats and it looks like it was a global thing. Anyone know what happen?
  6. and now its telling me that my card is not supported or i need to update my drivers... and i just updated them... this is becoming such a pain
  7. couple of questions... 1 i can't copy the client into my home directory. or the directory called home i can put it into the directory with the same name as my user name? 2 i tried running it from that location and got Module not found.... EDIT: thought i got it working... but then after it started and downloaded its first wu it failed giving me this + Working ... err:module:import_dll Loading library nvcuda.dll (which is needed by L"Z:\\home\\james\\Desktop\\[email protected]_XP-623\\FahCore_11.exe") failed (error c0000020). err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"Z:\\home\\james\\Desktop\\[email protected]_XP-623\\FahCore_11.exe" failed, status c0000135 [04:20:32] CoreStatus = C0000135 (-1073741515) [04:20:32] Client-core communications error: ERROR 0xc0000135 [04:20:32] This is a sign of more serious problems, shutting down. [email protected]:~/Desktop/[email protected]_XP-623$ i just renamed the one i got from the folding site after i extracted to the desktop and in the terminal cd'd to that directory then ran it... can't i do that or is this something else?
  8. dang... if i had another machine that i could put this card into i would. and i'm more than alittle afraid to try to mix different cards in my personal computer...
  9. Just asking in anyone here does this because I have a 8400GS in a kubuntu machine I would like it to fold. Its on the latest stable release 9.04 and I'm having some issues getting it setup. Tried over at the official [email protected] forum but not much help... I'm not sure what the directions mean here in the instructions. " You will need to tell the system that the CUDA toolkit is installed and make sure the cudart.dll.so file can find its required dependencies. Add /usr/local/cuda/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf and run as root" add that file to that file and run what as root?
  10. New one just arrived from tigerdirect today. Tried it out but with the exact same result...
  11. I don't see that option in my bios... what I do have is primary video controller which is either onboard or auto. auto being selected will use a video card if present. I'm still looking to update my bios but I've been talking to tech support from the manufacture and his latest email to me was a form letter explaining there warranty and how to get a new card... so it might just be defective
  12. the problem is that the file that they would want to be booted from a floppy isn't an iso. i'm sure this pc can boot from a cd because i installed xp on it that way. ya i've burned iso's before i know how it can be but I was thinking I might be able to find some program that would convert this BIOS executable file to an iso but i've had no luck so far thanks
  13. it should, my new one does. but it just has F2 to enter setup. i looked around there for an option to boot from the cd but no dice. i may have to track down a floppy disk haha
  14. this pc doesn't allow me to boot from usb and of the two formats found here i tried burning the second one which says its a a BIOS executable file but it just booted windows even with the cd at the top of the boot sequence
