is there a command i need to type to close the wu or just close the box? thnx again


just close the box!

and when you restart, just go to the TERMINAL

and type:

cd ~/fah

then

./fah6 -smp 8 -bigadv ( if 8 cores )

but I have already enter the flags in the beinning of the cleint setup, So i do not have to enter the arugment again, and just ./fah6 in my setup, but you can enter the whole command ./fah6 -smp 8 -bigadv   just to be safe!!!!!

you can use the -oneunit argument after the above command, if you wish to stop the client after bigadv is completed and sented, and switch over to EVGApes later in the race

WB


OK I used the -oneunit and that works fine but how do i reconfigure my client to a diiferent user name and pass key? when  I enter the cd ~/fah then ./fah6 it just starts folding because the setup is not cinfigurable at that point so before starting a new wu what command do i need to use to reconfigure my client to EVGApes, team #111065, and passkey?
 
Thanks this is the only part that I am stumped on since the client is configured to save settings already entered and just fold away.

Re:Basic Ubuntu BIGADV FOLDING guide: 2010/04/24 12:03:59 (permalink)
there is 3 way.

1st methods: cut and paste your client.cfg to some OTHER folder in your desktop, than restart ./fah6 and it will ask for setup infomation.

2nd methods: Open the Client.cfg with open office.org word processor (  located in the APPLICATION>>>>OFFICE. then copy and replace the value inside ( username and passkey ) then save and exit. Then restart the ./fah6.

3rd method: when enter the command. use this argument -config or -configonly

I plan on doing the 1st method, so after the race I can just replace the client.cfg in the fah folder.

ok linuxrouter said just add the argument -configonly after ./fah6 to reconfigure.
but that is a good idea to keep that file for later as well.

thanks

-config

Allows users to change their configuration information. This includes user & team names (reflected in the stats), whether or not to ask before a network connection is made to fetch/send work, set up proxy servers, preferred work unit type (Folding/Genome), process priority, CPU usage requested (5-100%), whether or not to use assembly loops, whether or not to use deadline information, and Machine ID changes.

-configonly

Same as above, but quit following configuration instead of beginning work.

I successfully overclocked my rig to 4.20GHz with 2:10 and it's pushing exactly 29min TPF with no GPU folding. I'm guessing it's gonna be about 31-32min TPF with GPU clients...


my 4.2GHz with 2:10 is pushing 27:53 TPF with no gpu folding

i just restarted the e762, it is only 23 frames, but it have been doing over 500 frames @ around 27:49 to 27: 53

Thanks for the info WB! So native Linux IS better in bigadv (as if it needed proof, lol). Mine is E758, so maybe there is an advantage for E762 against it, idk? Still, there is at least a one minute advantage for Linux, which I just checked translates to 2K PPD difference
Do you have Turbo ON? Does Linux have any issue recognizing turbo?

My 920 @ 4 GHz is pushing 32 min TPF with a GTX 260 gpu client and this is under Win 7 x64,. The draw for Linux is for greater than 8 cores, otherwise I don't' see any real gains or benefits frankly. BTW also, my 980X is pushing near sub 25 min TPF, also under W7 with 8 core smp. Doubtful I'd see much of an improvement under Linux unless I go to 11 or 12 cores and that's been problematic for me and thus is why I'm back to W7 for this chip. I was using 9.10 x64 Ubuntu so not sure of if it was within that version that was creating difficulties for me or what but I may try the new Beta 10.4 RC when I have a short res-bit before CC begins, we shall see.

my 930 @ 4GHz is getting 29:50 tpf! +2 minute tpf * 100 is alot of bonus points about = to or more then the 260 puts out in the same time. So for linux folding and my tpf I am getting more ppd from my big adv then your getting from your big adv + a gtx 260 at much less energy cost, seems worth it to me.

I'm awaiting a 6600 for the 920 rig so had to use a GTX 260 for now. You're missing my point entirely, OS for OS, Linux doesn't provide substantial gains over W7 if just doing bigadv and no gpu clients.

linuxrouter

I am at 29:37 currently with my 920 @ 4.0 GHz with native Linux. This is with 2:8 at 6-6-6-18.
Right now I'm down to about 32:45 and would probably shave off 1-2 min off that when my G6600 gets into the system and the GTX 260 is back into the 980X rig, so your numbers are about right.

Just to add to the pool, I'm getting about 30:30 TPF with two GPU clients running. That's more than 1K PPD lost per GPU client.

Is this with your Xeon rig? Not bad TPF and compared to what 25 or 30K PPD, hardly significant.

Yep, with the Xeon rig in my sig. I did a benchmark overnight with only two GPU clients. Three GPU clients make the TPF go up to 31:30, five GPU clients TPF is about 34:30. So, the relationship is not linear after three clients and PPD loss grows awfully fast. I'm having second thoughts with my 9800GX2's... I concluded that three GPU clients is the most I should be running along with -bigadv and power used and heat generated by additional GPU's is just a waste. I think I'll go back to single GPU cards... I'm hoping for GPU3 client and that a GTX470 can produce like 13K PPD with a single client, if not more.

Great guide. Thanks.
Just trying Ubuntu 9.04 today/yesterday. Tried 9.10 a couple months back and I could not get it to fold stable at all. Running a W3520 @ 4.4GHz & mem @ 2:8 1680MHz getting a TPF of 27:21. Same system under W7 @ 4.2GHZ & mem @ 2:6 1200MHz was getting me a TPF of 30:50.
3:29 a frame is more than 200MHz on cpu & 480MHz on mem would nock off.

Great guide!!! Guess I should have read it better though. I got excited after skimming through the guide and jumped right over to the egg to order some parts. Did some pricing and decided on a Phenom II X6. LOL DOH!!!!! No -bigadv for me. Only 6 cores. Requires 8 Cores.  Oh well.......

You can run GPU folding in Linux but there is a lot of stuff that needs to be installed to make that happen including nvidia cuda library, ia32 libs, wine, and the wine wrapper.

no no, that was all on Windows 7 with VMware bigadv using LR's image 1.2. I decided to stay with GPU folding along with VMware in Windows. Sorry for the late response, I just saw your post...

sounded like you are running ubuntu 10.04 OS, currently the glibc in 10.04 do not work with @fah at the moment. you can change the libc file, but linuxrouter would have to go into details and he doe have the file available.

But it is too complicated for me, so I would recommened going back to 9.04 ubuntu OS instead of playing with the command line.

http://foldingforum.org/v...c.php?f=55&t=12824

I have make a few changes on the guide with not to use 10.04 OS currently until the issue is solved.

Sorry ,

WB

All the goods for my SR-2 rig are showing up this week, so just curious if anyone has any updates on the optimal configuration for bigadv in Ubuntu.

Is 9.10 with the 2.6.33 kernel still the way to go for fast and stable bigadv Folding?

When I gpu fold in linux w/-bigadv, I use this ( nice -n 19 ) line to start the gpu's it helps a lot
nice -n 19 wine Folding@home-Win32-GPU.exe -forcegpu nvidia_g80 -gpu 0

My -bigadv is set to nice 13 (set in -config file @ low instead of idle)
Gpu's set to nice 19
