Folding Using The Linux SMP Client Under Windows

Recommended Posts

I'm finally back on the Linux SMP client with Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04. Some of you (waterlou) might have cought the problems I had with my RAID-0. I was trying to rescue the data, so I had no folding running, or I had the Windows SMP client running for a week as I didn't have time to set up the Linux variant.

 

>1,600 PPD, here I come again !!! :D

Those new WUs 2608/2609 are a lot slower and worth less points, more like 900/1000 PPD

whaaaat??? That's why my GPU client is down to 13s a frame instead of 9.8s.... craptakluar that is! I just checked, they're around 1300 points, meh... Thats kinna stupid though, cause shouldn't slower and more intense WUs gain more points?

Seems to me and a lot of other people think they should. Stanford says that SMP is designed for quad core anyway so if you get by with a dual core thats just our benefit and its all about science. Any way there are pages and pages of people complaining at folding forums. Seems they use quad cores for there testing and allocating WU points and time limits. It seems the 4Mb cache is doing a lot better than the 2Mb cache. Most people with AMD X2s are really crying, seems a HT P4 can do them as quick as some of the slower X2s and a lot are not making the deadlines.

woa! Until now I had full faith into my E6400 2MB L2 Cache, come on Stanford! Don't ruin my look upon the world! :P

 

Maybe they'll do something about it, maybe not. Anyways, I wish we still had he 2604/2605's :):foldon:

Does anyone have a simpler guide to running the FAH SMP client under VM with Linux? That one is outdated and I simply find it bloated. I think it has to be easier than that.

The guy that makes the folding cd also makes a vmware image that runs folding. I have not tried it. Also, you could try running the folding cd inside vmware.

I haven't read all of the 27 or so pages of the thread, so I don't know exactly what you are talking about. Is it in this thread? What is the folding CD? A CD just for VMWare and folding all setup together is an awesome idea.
