Rejoining the Fold... but first some help needed...

Postposted on Mon Jul 21, 2008 3:36 am

Hi all,

After an extended absence I'm coming back for some more folding action; too many CPU cycles are going down the toilet.

I use Ubuntu 8.04.1 AMD64. I'm trying to configure the client. A terminal has just spat this at me:

Code: Select all
[08:25:39] Configuring Folding@Home...

User name [Anonymous]? pedrogent
Team Number [0]? 2630
Passkey []?
Ask before fetching/sending work (no/yes) [no]? n
Use proxy (yes/no) [no]? n
Acceptable size of work assignment and work result packets (bigger units
 may have large memory demands) -- 'small' is <5MB, 'normal' is <10MB, and
 'big' is >10MB (small/normal/big) [normal]? big
Change advanced options (yes/no) [no]? n

[08:28:57] - Ask before connecting: No
[08:28:57] - User name: pedrogent (Team 2630)
[08:28:57] - User ID not found locally
[08:28:57] + Requesting User ID from server
[08:28:57] - Machine ID: 1
[08:28:57]
[08:28:57] -configonly flag given, so exiting.
Terminated


Am I all set to go? What does 'User ID not found locally mean'?

Thanks a lot.

Pedro.

It's never affected me before. I think it means just what it says but it won't affect you in any way.

Hmmm... one other thing. I configured under the wrong user name ('pedrogent') when I should have used my old 'pedro'. I've done a few WUs before so I may as well run under 'pedro'. Is it simply a case of running the config again?

Yep that'll do it, and welcome back to your wheel and dangled cheese.

Do you have a real dual core CPU (not the fake hyperthreading ones)? Are you running the SMP client?

Welcome back to the fold.

I believe, though someone will doubtlessly correct me if I'm wrong, that it simply means that there is no local cache with that user name. I think that you should only see that message once (provided that you let the client run long enough to download a work unit.

You can always quit and restart the client to check. You ought to get a hex string automatically as your User ID when loading from a cached job. It is not a problem in any case unless you can't connect to the server.

Yeah a dual-core. She's putting along with an SMP client.

There's almost no stopping the pedro Juggernaut!

OK, yeh, I might actually join the Nation. One more WU and I think I'll make the switch.
