Great! Glad to have helped a little bit with that achievement.

Would have been more, but when I started doing it on my desktop, I found that I had a heat issue. It is now sitting idle while I wait for the cooler to get here.

So I started doing it on my laptop, which is where all the points I have came from. Unfortunately, the drive in my laptop went a couple of days ago! I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this point! :lol: :cry:

Right now I am using the livecd of Mint to log on as it is the only way I can use my laptop. To say the least it has been an exciting few weeks now!

Hopefully it will all start going better shortly!

uh oh...I was able to run folding w/mint 9 rc but now that I installed the Final I am getting an error.....I am using the whosyerdaddy-0.6.sh work around.

first error I noticed on install:
darco@darco-Mint9 ~/lib64-fah $ ~/whosyerdaddy-0.6.sh

so basically trying to run folding gets me:

darco,

sorry that I can't help you at the moment as I am still running Mint9 RC without any problems. I believe that I can keep my RC release and just keep it fully updated with 1,2 and 3 level updates, then there would be no need to install the final release.

Keep us informed please.

Best regards Keith

What is going on with our team? I just checked today and there is only two active users: kwisher and myself (Incubator_Computers). What gives? We need to recruit people quickly! I don't think a lot of people realise that this program does not slow down your computer at all.

Anyone tried to use Origami? The package is in the repos and is a nice script. It even has simple start/stop commands with a built in status check and a stats listing.

The only problem I have with it is that I can not get my 64bit to run two cores when set up for it. I have to go in 32bit mode in order to use both cores.

Just set up my spare lappy, with a view to easing back into this project I started a hell of a long time ago. Downloaded the following files from http://folding.stanford.edu/English/HomePage and was dead easy to get back up and running.

fahclient_7.2.9_amd64.deb
fahcontrol_7.2.9-1_all.deb
fahviewer_7.2.9_amd64.deb

Now if we could just get all 86 members up and running we would be quids in.

We are now ranked 853

Been folding for the past couple of days now that it's cold enough here to have the extra heater running. Gotta love them 4870x2's :lol:

Okay boys and girls, here I come! :twisted:

I've got 3 Linux Mint machines folding now, and they're humming along great (Mint made sure of that). I use HFM to monitor progress.

I am excited to be folding for Team Linux Mint!

Hi All,

I thought I would share some things I've learned.

I built a dedicated folding machine, fairly cheaply, that averaged 23k PPD. (It's been retired now so my PPD will drop a lot)


I then got my hands on a GTX460, and started folding on both. Well, my PPD went down to 19k (!?). I tried leaving a CPU core for the GPU, but it didn't help.

I have a WIndows 7 machine with the same CPU, overclocked to 3.5 GHz, liquid cooled, 8GB RAM (basically similar enough to the dedicated folding machine I expected similar PPD), but folding through Windows averaged only 11k PPD.

HFM monitoring has been nice, and fairly easy to pull data from remote servers via HTTP.

In case it helps anyone.

-Bo

Hey all, finally got situated where I could leave my machines up to fold again. Saw that we are at 664 now, that pretty sweet!

Wonder how we can get more people involved. Anyway it is good to be back and stationary for a bit. I hope it lasts. :lol:

Happy Folding and Happy Holiday Season. Hope everyone has a safe New Year!
