This is a basic guide for BIGADV folding in Ubuntu 9.04

Ubuntu 9.04 will supported 8 cores(i7 920-975) or 12 cores (i7 980x) CPU

Here is the Download for DESKTOP (AMD64) ubuntu 9.04 ISO IMAGE  :  http://releases.ubuntu.com/9.04/

make sure it is 64bit ubuntu OS (AMD64) ( Do NOT use Ubuntu 10.04 OS at this time, IT WILL NOT WORKED currently @fah client is not supported on the newer GLIBC ) Use any 64bit Ubuntu version instead of 10.04 ( USE  8.04 , 8.10, 9.04 or 9.10 )

But use 9.04 or 9.10 version for 12 or more cores folding!!!!

After Download, Using your favorite DVD Burning Image software and Burn the ISO image onto a DVD. ( I prefer Imageburn ) http://www.imgburn.com/

Please remove all Window Installed HDD or SSD from your SATA PORTS. ( We do not wish to installed Ubuntu bootloader onto your existing Window Hard Drive or Mess with your existing HDD partition ) And Also this allow a EASY Removal of Ubuntu in the future without repairing your WINDOW Partition during Bootup

Pluged in your OLD or UNUSED HDD and DVD Rom onto the SATA PORT or IDE PORT

REBOOT Computer and Press any keys on the Keyboard when ASKED for booting from your DVD DRIVE:

And Follow the Disc Instruction for Installing Ubuntu.

Here is somewhat what it is going to look like in UBUNTU ( I have 8.10 Version of Ubuntu, Since It is already installed and modified, so It is going to look slightly different than ubuntu 9.04 ) I don't have the time to upgrading to 9.04 on all my systems, so that is what I am using at the moment.



Now click open FIREFOX:
and Click on EDIT > PREFERENCES:





Change the Download settings to Above Photo: " ALWAYS ASK ME WHERE TO SAVE FILES " Then Click CLOSE

Now Download Stanford FAH@HOME for LINUX ( VERSION 6.29 ) http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Download



CLICK ON the CUTE LITTLE penguin



And SAVE it onto your DESKTOP ( like the above photo ) and click SAVE

Go back to your DESKTOP SCREEN: you should see a FAH6.29-LINUX.TGZ.

RIGHT CLICK and EXTRACT HERE.

And you will see a FAH6.29-Linux FOLDER on your desktop

On the bottom of the Desktop go to PLACE>> COMPUTER > and your home folder ( in my case it is called Michael ) it should be above the desktop icon




then RIGHT CLICK and CREATE NEW FOLDER:




And NAME IT " Fah " ( like the above photo )

NOW go back to your Desktop and click into the FAH6.29 Linux Folder

COPY both files inside the 6.29 ( fah6 & mpiexec )

and PASTE IT inside your Fah folder you have just created.

GO TO your fah folder:

Right click the fah6 icon then go to perrmission , the setting should look like this:



Copy the above setting and click CLOSE " MAKE SURE you check the BOX " ALLOW executing file as program "

Then do the same thing to the mpiexec file.

it should look like this:



NOW WE ARE ALMOST DONE!!!!!!!

now go back to the HOME FOLDER and right click the fah folder >>>> to SHARING OPTION

This allow you to acess the fah folder from another computer using HFM monitoring software :



check the box "share this folder" and "Guest access " then close the window.

The guest access box allow easy access to your fah folder later in network configuration.

Now go to APPLICATION>>>> ACCESSORIES>>>>>>>TERMINAL




a little hint : you can drag the Terminal icon onto your toolbar panel for easy access in the future:

this is what is going to look like in the TERMINAL BOX:



NOW FOLLOW THE BOTTOM INSTRUCTION VERY CAREFULLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

type: cd ~/fah

for 8 cores folding:

type: ./fah6 -smp 8 -bigadv

for 12 cores folding:

type: ./fah6 -smp 12 -bigadv

for 24 cores folding:

type: ./fah6 -smp 24 -bigadv

Then it should take you to configurated your client info:

Enter you Folding name, Team # ( 111065 ), then your passkey.

whenask for advance setting : choose "YES"

and Choose BIG as your assigment packet.

and in the extra parm settings: you can enter -smp X -bigadv ( X= # of cores ) so you don't have to enter all the command again later in the Terminal

After you have finish setup, IT should automatically DOWNLOAD the work unit and start folding.

and you should see something like this in the terminal box

8X1X1


*** DO NOT close the terminal box when it is folding*** otherwise it would shut down folding.

you terminal box should look like this after couple of hours during folding.




Happy Folding!!

WB

Linux Kernel 2.6.33 installation guide for Ubuntu Linux Published on 25 February, 2010 in Linux. 6 Comments Tags: Linux, nVIDIA, Ubuntu.

This short walkthrough describes how to get the latest linux kernel working under Ubuntu Linux without having to compile it yourself.
This tutorial should work with the latest version of Ubuntu Linux (9.10) and all distributions based on Ubuntu Linux like Mint.
The included kernel files have been compiled using the generic ubuntu configuration. 
Note: nVIDIA ForceWare drivers are automatically installed using DKMS (which is included in Ubuntu 8.10 and higher including 9.04 and 9.10)
And in case you don`t want to reboot you should try out Ksplice.
Installation Guide
  1. Download linux-headers-2.6.33-020633_2.6.33-020633_all.deb
  2. Download your kernel headers package;
    I386:  linux-headers-2.6.33-020633-generic_2.6.33-020633_i386.deb
    AMD64: linux-headers-2.6.33-020633-generic_2.6.33-020633_amd64.deb
  3. Download your kernel compile;
    I386:  linux-image-2.6.33-020633-generic_2.6.33-020633_i386.deb
    AMD64: linux-image-2.6.33-020633-generic_2.6.33-020633_amd64.deb
  4. Install the files in the same (else it won`t work!)
  5. In the terminal run:
    sudo update-grub
  6. Reboot and select the kernel from the bootloader menu
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

installed them one by one (double click and click install) in the following order:

linux-headers-2.6.33-020633_2.6.33-020633_all.deb

linux-headers-2.6.33-020633-generic_2.6.33-020633_i386.deb

linux-image-2.6.33-020633-generic_2.6.33-020633_i386.deb

*****If you are using amd64 (64-bit) installation, you should download the files with amd64 instead of i386******

TO SHUT OFF UBUNTU energy/laptop saving mode:

Dynamic frequency scaling (also known as CPU throttling) is a technique in computer architecture where a processor is run at a less-than-maximum frequency in order to conserve power. Dynamic frequency scaling is commonly used in laptops and other mobile devices, where energy comes from a battery and thus is limited. It is also used in quiet computing settings and to decrease energy and cooling costs for lightly loaded machines.

If you have a desktop PC, you may want to turn it off. The old sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-applets method does not work anymore, so here's what you need to do to disable CPU frequency scaling so that you CPU always runs at full capacity:

Open a terminal and type this:

sudo apt-get install rcconf


This installs rcconf which we now need to run so again in a terminal, type:

sudo rcconf


For cpu scaling, look for

[ ] laptop-mode -----------------new and older version
[ ] powernowd -------------8.04-8.10 version
[ ] powernowd.early
-------------8.04-8.10 version
[ ] ondemand-------------------newer version

" and once at the entry, with the space bar un-check the box. To save the configuration hit the tab key so that "OK" is highlighted then enter to save and reboot.

NOW you will Disabled the frequency scaling, and it will show your real Clock speed 20x*bclk (but you will not see the Turbo ON MODE 21x ) and also you will be @ Performance Mode

go to SYSTEM>>>ADMINISTRATION>>>>SYNAPTIC PACKAGE MANAGER.



type : Gkrellm in the search box ( like the photo above )

then click the box in the bottom GKRELLM " GNU KRELL MONITIOR

then

mark for installation , APPLY, and APPLY again to get installed.

go to  APPLICATION >>>> SYSTEM TOOLS>>>> Gkrellm System Monitor .

this will access the program, and you should able to monitor your CPU, memory, HDD, internet, Swap disk, usages. and also your cpu and core TEMP

WB

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Also this command instructions is from Linuxrouter!!!!

For the Intel Core processors, the driver to monitor core temps should be coretemp. In a terminal as root try this:

modprobe coretemp

For Ubuntu, you would need to put sudo in front of the above command.

sudo modprobe coretemp

you should see something like this on the photo below. it have cpu temp and core temp



More details command from Linuxrouter!

Another usual temp monitoring module that applies to EVGA x58 boards is f71882fg. This is for the Fintek chip and provides extra info for temps, voltages, and fan speed.


sudo modprobe f71882fg

Example:

# sensors

f71882fg-isa-0290
Adapter: ISA adapter

+3.3V:       +3.33 V
in1:         +0.85 V  (max =  +2.04 V)
in2:         +1.10 V
in3:         +1.01 V
in4:         +0.88 V
in5:         +0.94 V
in6:         +1.34 V
3VSB:        +3.26 V
Vbat:        +3.17 V
fan1:          0 RPM  ALARM
fan2:          0 RPM  ALARM
fan3:          0 RPM  ALARM
fan4:       5119 RPM
temp1:       +42.0 C  (high = +85.0 C, hyst = +81.0 C)
                      (crit = +100.0 C, hyst = +96.0 C)  sensor = Intel PECI
temp2:       +55.0 C  (high = +85.0 C, hyst = +81.0 C)
                      (crit = +100.0 C, hyst = +96.0 C)  sensor = transistor
temp3:         FAULT  (high = +70.0 C, hyst = +68.0 C)
                      (crit = +85.0 C, hyst = +83.0 C)  sensor = transistor

Re:Basic Ubuntu BIGADV FOLDING guide: 2010/04/19 23:36:34 (permalink)
the other 2 may not be in your version of ubuntu kernal . As long the laptop mode is shut off and it is in performance mode, you should be good to go.

what is your overclock speed? and Ram Speed? Ram Timing have little to no effect on TPF in ubuntu ( based on my other systems performance )

But a faster RAM speed does improve your TPF by 1-2 minutes

31 mins tpf is not bad , but you can improve the tpf, by shutting down other services you may not need during startup.

go to SYSTEM>>>> ADMINISTRATION>>>>> SERVICES

and unclick some off the services that you may not need. such as : audio settings, bluetooth device, CPU freq manager,  Braille Display managment, etc.

Also close firefox if you are finish browsing the WEB can also improve your TPF.

my systems TPF is around : 27:50 - 29:43 based on 4 to 4.2 GHz clock

Hope this help!

WB

Linuxrouter have also mention that the keneral version 26.33.1 ( if i remember it correctly ) can also improved performance on ubuntu, BUT I HAVE NOT try it myself.

also there is a this experimental keneral http://en.fah-addict.net/...your-linux-folding.php , but be warn , any changes in kernal may required you to REinstalled any updates and/or Drivers. I have not try it , because I don't like playing with all the sudo command in linux, to REinstalled my Nvidia driver and Cuda.

I updated one of the machine to a newer keneral couple of months ago, and it was a PITA. lol

I did a quick OC to 3.8GHz with 1600mhz ram 2:8 ram frequency. I am not 100% positive I am stable yet until the wu finishes as I just used settings from a previous le oc build i did to 3.8 and so far so good only time will tell, but yeah i'll go turn off those services off if they will help cause the board is just useing 8 cores to do a big adv wu.

here is my slap job pic of my caseless big adv folder




i7 930 with evga le x 58 board and 160GB hdd patriot ram 9-9-9-24-74-1T

haha, that is how all my bigadv systems is pretty much slap together in the beginning!! lol

One other hint: If it reboot in ubuntu ( since there is no BSOD in linux ) then you need more vcore or vtt , but mostly vcore.

If it frezze , then it is memory or IMC issue, than you may need to upped the VTT and/OR adjusted the RAM speed, dimm or Timing.

OK thnx again for your help sure i'll be asking more as i go along.
 
the only thing i didn't change was my uncore but since it is a 930 and mild oc i am hopeing it wont be a issue.

right now i am just trying to make sure i am stable before i up my oc as i am only at 53c according to the mb led but i am sure that is maybe 10c off.

will stopping those services while the machine is folding hurt the wu? 

edit.thnx

ps: can you pm me the cc passkey for big adv and smp2.


no it will not hurt, also you don't have to worry bigadv corrupted even if you have to reboot.  ( unlike VM player )if no changes is made in the fah folder,  but a reboot is required for the disabled services to take affect.

also the temp is around 10-15c off then what is showing on mobo led ( based on my classified mobo )

will PM you the passkey when I find the messages buried in my mailbox. lol

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

Great guide and thanks to RJ for the sticky and BR

My question is though, how long from install to setup to get going? I tried it the other day and it just seemed that I had to go chase down drivers etc. but then again I was down to my main rig and I'm awaiting another new board, an EVGA X583xSLI LE to put this on with a 920 and would be folding with a GTX 260 also, or I may go Ubuntu on my main rig and the 980X.

You install ubuntu, then update ubuntu, and get the bigadv going. Shouldn´t take more than 15 to 30 min all together.
What drivers did you need? I didn´t need to install any, but that was purely for bigadv folding

I'm fine. I just basically wanted some monitoring ability ala eleet, but my system is already stable so no major worries but would be nice nonetheless. I'm a total n00b Linux user (gee can you tell?), pay no mind

go to SYSTEM>>>ADMINISTRATION>>>>SYNAPTIC PACKAGE MANAGER.



type : Gkrellm in the search box ( like the photo above )

then click the box in the bottom GKRELLM " GNU KRELL MONITIOR

then

mark for installation , APPLY, and APPLY again to get installed.

go to  APPLICATION >>>> SYSTEM TOOLS>>>> Gkrellm System Monitor .

this will access the program, and you should able to monitor your CPU, memory, HDD, internet, Swap disk, usages. and also your cpu TEMP

Indeed thanks wb for that and the guide once again. if I may, what are the best nvidia drivers to use with Ubuntu 9.10 which I'm now back up on? Thanks.

Also, should I install all of the updates?

I installed all the updates and just make sure you go back and disable unneeded services like wb said. i didn't use any drivers. total install and setup less then 25 minutes for me, gov.
 
for gpu folding you'll want to use wine if i am not mistaken, but i am not gpu folding on this machine so i get max bonus points for big adv.

Ok, I will need to fold on one GTX 260, won't cut into my smp stuff since I'm now on all <cough> 12 cores <cough>

after you finish up some ubuntu 12 core folding big adv let me know how your tpf is i may just make one more folder for 12 core if the tpf is really good. I considered buying one yesterday but got the 930 instead. don't forget with that 12 core the fast tpf will greatly increase your bonus i would run one with out gpu folding just to see and compare that total to the total with a gpu, youmay be surprised that the extra bonus is worth more then what a 260 put's up ppd wise.
