Okay this is what I have folding now. 1 Radeon VII, 1 1080ti, 1 980ti, 1 2070. I hope they hurry up and Set F@H to utilize AMD GPUs better, this way I can get rid of some of these Nvidia cards.

Hi all,

Yesterday I managed to destroy my Mint 19.2 Mate. I have re-installed it and everything is running ok except my Folding at Home.

It launches alright but then throws an error. I have purged folding 3 times and re-installed but with the same result.

Code: Select all

I am unable to get folding to run. It downloads a file to 100% and then throws an error

Did you try changing kernel? you might need to update it with the new drivers. I am still trying to learn how all this linux stuff works. it has to break for me to fix it to learn.

Hi battlenut,

I am running

kernel 4.15.0-64201910022001

Nvidia driver 430.26-0ubuntu0.18.04.2

If I can't get it running I might try to install Mint 19 Mate, and see if I can get it running in that.

Best regards Keith

Hi tinca,

I haven't seen this problem before, usually the GPU isn't recognized at the start. I don't see Nvidia 430.26 available on my 19.2, only 430.50 (I'm using it now) and 435.21(haven't tried yet) as the latest drivers.

Did you add the drivers ppa?

Hi greerd,

No I do not install from outside ppa,s. I used /menu/system tools/system monitor and wrote it down from there. The driver I must have installed from the driver option.

Yesterday I made my first "timeshift" image and put it on a USB pen drive. I thought that all I had to do was to plug in the pen drive and re-install from it. It did not work. Using a terminal I dug down until I could reach the usb timeshift snapshot and although I could not re-install from it I thought that I could copy over my working Fahclient, which I did. It still showed the same error.

I decided to wipe the hard drive and to install Mint 18.3 Mate. I set up folding as per my written notes and after a few restarts I have finally managed to get it up and running.

Thank for your help, it is very much appreciated.
