[Ubuntu] A Linux N00B's Guide to Running -bigadv (and big -bigadv) on x6 and 2500k - Page 8  

post #71 of 100
I've been playing quite a bit with things lately and I've reached the conclusion that the 64 bit Linux core is the way to go for me. I'm tearing through the WUs on the a3 core and so long as this keeps up, I should be solid. I'm still on the fence about the GPU cores in parallel with the SMP ones. Oddly enough, running it native vs inside of a VirtualBox doesn't seem to make a difference at all.

I've been thinking about pushing some team EVGA WUs out with my video card while I push out Team OCN WUs with my SMP. (The extra EVGA bucks are nice but I don't want to stop contributing to the OCN group.)

I was able to finish the -bigadv WU that I had though and I squeaked in with about 19 minutes to spare on the bonus. However, I couldn't do anything else on my PC and I'd have been much better off getting a few less points on A3 core WUs and having the freedom of browsing whenever I like.

this guide worked perfectly for my 2600k, without needing the core hack.

thanks! pulled a 6097, game on.

I'm currently folding a 6097 on a SMP 4 client, windows based...

That's not a -bigadv project anymore; it's a SMP WU now. (It may be an -advmethods SMP WU and not a standard SMP WU, but it's not -bigadv.) You can't get a -bigadv without having the "core hack" in Linux (or a Linux VM) on a 2600K.

 

Out of curiosity, what is your TPF. My 2500K is folding that at a 9 minute 20 second (dead-on) TPF with a GPU client also running in parallel while I browse this website.

gotcha - i tried the core hack a few days ago but didn't like how it affected my system in other ways. reverted, now getting 20K ppd.

tpf was roughly 9.00.

now folding a 6099 at 8.40

Thanks for the guide, will be using this once I build my new machine (hopefully will be done next week). I've never folded and would like to start.

Quick question, how big are these downloads and one the client is finished folding, does it remove the download and start downloading the next one?

Should I change the "-smp 6" flag to "-smp 4" because the i5 is a quad-core?

Yes you should. :)

Is it still pulling bigadv with this method or are we stuck with the crappy smp WUs?

I'm asking because I just downloaded ubuntu and was about to install it with virtualbox but if it's not working then I won't waste my time.

Thx guys
