I'm pretty sure the system is stable. My power did go out last night. Everything resumed, but maybe it still messed it up.
We have a forbidden socket in the kitchen that shorts the house out every time you use it...So we NEVER use it. My room mate was pretty drunk and pressed his luck by plugging the quesadilla maker into the socket.......I'm minding my own business at my computer and everything just went dark. I instantly yelled upstairs "TELL ME YOU DIDN'T JUST PLUG THE QUESADILLA MAKER INTO THAT SOCKET!?" I just hear laughing. I screamed NOOOO! Once everything resumed I figured I was in the clear. I wish I could blame murphy, but truth be told...it was a quesadilla that killed my wu! And its going to take a lot more than a quesadilla to stop me from completing one of these wu's! If attempt #3 goes bad, I'll retest my stability. Till next time....

Gotta love drunk roommates. And the quesadilla maker is the greatest.

At last we have success here. Got 3 steps done. TPF is about 41:30. My I7 is at 3780. I did the calculator and that is about 17k ppd. That is about 3 times what I was getting with notfreds with 3 instances running. I'm so stoked I took a screenie. With this running and my GTX 285 I should be in the 25k range on ppd. THANKS A TON LR

Does my picture show up? I have noticed since being on the new forums that I can't see some attachments. I use Firefox so maybe that is why?

Re:VMWare 3.0 && bigadv folding (Image available for testing) 2009/11/08 18:10:07 (permalink)
I finished my WU's with a passkey. I shut down the -smp 8 client, when the new one started I entered the -bigadv -smp 7. In fahmon it shows it as a 1920 points WU that is 8% done. 
I did one bigadv before then realized I need the 10wu's so I shut down the program. Is the 8% left from the other bigadv or am I really doing a 1920?

Folding whatever I can :o)

I tried powering off and redoing it and got the 1920 again. What files do I need to delete to get a new wu?

It could be that the client had already downloaded a 1920 pt unit before you made the switch to -bigadv. I would try this:

Stop the client (CTRL+C)
Enter:
./fah6 -smp 8 -oneunit

It will run through the current 1920 pt unit and the program will exit when it is done. Then once it exits run this:

./fah6 -bigadv -smp 7

Gotta love those quesadilla makers. :)
 
It could be that when the power went out, the file was not written to the disk correctly. After starting up, the client may have continued to write to other files. When it came time to submit, it was not able to read that one file off the disk and as a result the unit failed to submit.

okay new problem, I had two files saved so I extracted the new one and replaced the old FAH file. I re entered my name and team number but it keep saying my passkey isnt valid. I've tried 4 times.. Is there a way to copy it and paste it into the vmware player??

Alright try and remove the client configuration file:

rm client.cfg
./fah6 -bigadv -smp 7

Then reenter the config information. I do not know of a way to copy and paste the passkey into the VMWare unfortunately.

HalleluYa Tank I was Beginning to think you ought to just Drop it and Go Squirrel Hunting.
Actually I had that same thing happen , After Messing around with it awhile I figured my setup was Just Boken , Uninstalled player and Image started it Back up, and Re-configured it. Thats what I always do with the Bigadv has a serious failure, Ive never had the Skill to recover it when It Goes amok.

You can try this command to disable the screensaver:
 
setterm -blank 0
 
The outdated TPR message is normal as far as I know. I get that on my CPU folders as well.

So, first off, thanks for the how-to!  I'm unfamiliar with folding, but looks like everything is cruising right along.  I specified -smp 7 to leave some breathing room for the GPU client, but all 8 cores are completely tapped out at 100%.  What gives?  They're also sitting at 71C and earning ~6K PPD.  Seem legit?

Thanks again.

CPU load should be around 87-90%. You can check Windows task manager to see if there is another process loading down your CPU. A program like AV could do that.
 
What kind of processor do you have and is it overclocked? I see right around 10.4K PPD with these units and 7-cores with my 920 processor clocked at 3.8 GHz.

Just turned in my first wu with this, got another 25k one. Averaging about 11,200ppd @ 4GHz on 7 cores.

Thanks again linuxrouter, your image make it so simple for me to get up and running. Beats running the 4 notfred VMs I had setup before.

Hey guys, so im doing the big adv stuff now... actually, i did one, it took a little over 3 days, but then i realized o have not done the 10 smaller work units.  So, how do i know when ive done 10?  Also, sice ive done many in the past before i ever for a stanford passcode do those count or i need to do 10 since i got the passcode?

If it gave me a big unit does that mean im all set, or will i not get bonus points unless i have all 10 smaller units after getting the passcode?

You have to fold 10 smaller ones with the passkey, otherwise no bonus. All the previous ones without passkey don´t count

Re:VMWare 3.0 && bigadv folding (Image available for testing) 2009/11/10 04:27:40 (permalink)
Ok I am a Linux noob. I woke up this morning and my rig was running but the WU was not. It says user shut down the WU but it was running when I went to sleep. The unit started back up fine so hopefully it will just be a minor setback. Here is the picture I took of the error. And is there a way to sync the clocks so the times are correct?
 

 

Edit:My picture posting skills suck. I put a small pic in.

Ok I am a Linux noob. I woke up this morning and my rig was running but the WU was not. It says user shut down the WU but it was running when I went to sleep. The unit started back up fine so hopefully it will just be a minor setback. Here is the picture I took of the error. And is there a way to sync the clocks so the times are correct?




Edit:My picture posting skills suck. I put a small pic in.


It could be the work unit needed more memory than was allocated to the virtual machine. Default is 3600MB. You can try and allocate some extra memory to the virtual machine.
