New Big Wus

Recommended Posts

I thought I would try the new big WUs on a couple i7s to see how they do, took about 2.33 days @ 3.8Ghz worth 56,000 points with the bonus. I like these going to get it going on a few more i7s, it only works with Linux and OS/X and you have to have 8 cores. Here is the link for more details...

Big Wus and Big WUs. Two different things. Does "took about 2.33 @ 3.8 Ghz" mean 2.33 hrs?

That is what I am using ubuntu 8.04 64 bit, be sure you have 32 bit libraries installed, you have to use the passkey for bonuses, use -smp 8 -bigadv flags, do not use the -advmethods they say. I had done previous A2 wus so I only had to do 1 wu then it gave me a big one but they say you may have to do 10 A2s before you get the big ones...

Ubuntu is pretty straight forward and easy to use. If you decide to set it up and run into any roadblocks you can't solve, feel free to PM me.

Wow this sounds great! I wonder if I can do this with NotFred VMs or it needs to be only native LINUX.

I don't see why not.
