I'm intrigued by this, basically I know nothing about Linux ,the directions seem to be very detailed for someone of my limited knowledge.Maybe I'll try this on my 4200 X2 .

mkdir -p ~/folding/FAH
tar xzf FAH_SMP_Linux.tgz
10. Configure it. Note that this client works fairly similar to the console client.
This is similar to the standard console configuration (the team is 2630)
http://www.techreport.com/etc/folding/. However answer yes for "Allow receipt of work assignments greater than 5MB in size" and don't accept WU without deadlines (in advanced setting). Suggest to accept advanced work units. And if run into timing problems with an AMD cpu, can set ignore deadline information.
11. Run it by typing
./fah5 -forceasm -verbosity 9 (and any other parameters desired)
It should download the SMP Gromacs core and then a work unit (WU).
Note to stop it, just hit Ctrl-C. It will take up to a minute before all 4 threads are shut down, so don't restart the client before then!
12. To create an easy script to start this, type the following
This opens a simple edit program. Type the following and then press Ctrl-X and then Y to save it.
./fah5 -forceasm -verbosity 9
chmod +x startfah
Now when open the terminal, just type ./startfah and it will start SMP folding with the usual parameters.
Note if want different parameters (e.g. for -oneunit or reconfigure the client), then the original method applies (see step 11).

You should add a step to update the app-get list. I had to do this before my i should download the 32-bit lib files.
Also would this work with xubuntu - 64 bit? I've read that its a little easier on resources.

It's 700 megs for me. May be you have a broken download? Use a download manager or bittorrent to download it properly.pedro wrote:I've just d/led ubuntu-7.04-desktop-amd64.iso. It seems very, very tiny (8983 KB) - this can't possibly be right can it? This is an OS afterall? Linux distros I've used before have all been in the range of 6-700 MB.
Any help appreciated on this one - I want to fold this way. Cheers.
TROUBLESHOOTING THE CLIENT
1. The client is having trouble making connections and giving MPI bugs, such as " Fatal error in MPI_Wait: Other MPI error, error stack:"
Check out the advice from Pogo, who found an issue with the loopback device giving trouble. Here are simple steps to detect the issue:
- run "hostname" to get your local hostname
- run "ping <output>"
- look at response times from ping - if it's over 1ms you have a problem
- or run "traceroute <output>" - there better not be any hops in the route
- change your local hostname to something NOT pingable on the internet (i.e. do a ping or nslookup on that name from some other internet connected machine)
- add local host name to the "127.0.0.1 localhost" line in /etc/hosts
If you mean VMware Server then it is actually free for download. Only VMware Workstation and VMware Virtual Infrastructure (formerly known as ESX Server) are for-fee products.Nitrodist wrote:This is **** ridiculous. Does someone have a working, spare license/name/company thing?
