I've been having some problems folding lately. It seems the version of the SMP Linux client I have has somehow expired so I'll have to get a new one and reinstall it. But at the same time I'm trying to install a Linux distro on a third partition instead of running Ubuntu through VMWare, but the Ubuntu 7.04 and SUSE (I think it's 10.2) CD's I have look like they don't want to work. I'll do what I can to get Linux working and the n I'll be back. But it could take a little time cause I'm pretty busy this week. I have the whole week-end off so I should manage to get something working by Sunday.

As bewin said, several members are inactive and I think it's sad :talker: We gotta find more members - active ones.

Yep, Beta 3 expired on July 1. I just downloaded Beta 4 and replaced the two files (fah5 and mpiexec). It continued the work unit where it was stopped.

Man does it feel good to finally be back on and Folding once again. Glad to see people are still taking an interest. I hope to get my second machine up and running here shortly to hopefully get out team rank even lower. Good to see you all and will hopefully doing some hardcore posting here soon. :)

What's your processor? I remember my x2 3800+ (clocked at 2.6Ghz) folding 5-10 minutes faster than that on VMware/Ubuntu 7.04. Or maybe you just have a bigger WU.

Man seeing everyone folding again makes me eager to come back...

When I first installed the Linux SMP client on my Intel E4300, I noticed it wasn't as fast as it should be. I did a "cat /proc/cpuinfo" in a terminal and saw that each core was running at 800MHz or something. I turned off frequency scaling (power saving) in the BIOS and now it's 2.1GHz. This is what it looks like now:

Project: 2609 (Run 1, Clone 385, Gen 44)
...
[14:01:05] Completed 250000 out of 500000 steps  (50 percent)
[14:26:10] Writing local files
[14:26:10] Completed 255000 out of 500000 steps  (51 percent)
[14:51:16] Writing local files
[14:51:16] Completed 260000 out of 500000 steps  (52 percent)
[15:16:22] Writing local files
[15:16:22] Completed 265000 out of 500000 steps  (53 percent)
[15:42:15] Writing local files
[15:42:15] Completed 270000 out of 500000 steps  (54 percent)
[16:10:40] Writing local files
[16:10:40] Completed 275000 out of 500000 steps  (55 percent)

p2608 and p2609 take a lot longer than p2604 and p2605. Which is stupid because they're not worth as much, but I don't pretend to understand the point system.

I guess I just have a bigger piece of folding, because it's running at full throttle, and all working fine as far as I can see

It's not so bad, and anyway the goal is to save lives. It's not a competition, is it? :)

Just thought I'd let you guys know what I'm up to. Power bills hit me pretty hard the last 3 months. I think PG&E jacked up the rates. The intention was to shut down all my rigs but one as I upgrade my hardware. I gave my Dad an old P-4 lappy and it died. I then gave him another laptop. That happened to be my x64bit folder. After my power saving shutdown of 7 other rigs... I thought this would be a good time to make up for lost time. I have a quad Q6600 running stock with the Windows SMP in Vista 64 for my other team. The rig putting points here right now is another stock Q6600. It is running 2 instances of the Linux SMP in VMware and is kicking the Windows SMP Quad's butt in terms of points. I know there are many AMD fans here but a Quad for under $300? (it beats $600 for a PS3 :victory: ) Think about it! 4 cores from the darkside has me #1 in 24 hour average after 6 days of folding. :victory: :victory: I admit to being as anxious as everyone else to see Barcelona and Penryn.

:)
