Thanks for the confirmation, I will update my file. Should this be added to the OP for clarity? Perhaps add a direct link for Ubuntu 10.10 and emphasize the importance of using the version? Thanks all!

The top of my terminal says 12 cores
But the client below says starting 6 threads
Did I do something wrong?
My CPU went to 45% usage

Currently doing a 7511

is anything in this thread still working? or willing to assist me outside the forums

Pretty dead here (but the guide should still work), though I would not use this guide at the moment. This is the one I'd use.

Is that OK? or what? doing about 8:45 TPF

This is with 4.6GHz 2500K on a VM.

well based on these numbers the calculator says 12.5k credit for this turn in and a PPD of around 20k.... is this an improvement over your normal points"? completed in .63 days


and in general is doing 1-2 big projects every 1-2 days better then doing 10-20smaller ones if the points = same in the avg? i dont know but someone could chime in that would be great.

To improve auto-running on a linux machine, commands can be added to scripts in /etc/rc.d. This is how the linuxforge image runs the scripts. I'm not as familiar on where in the rc.d stuff to insert the commands to start folding. In the linuxforge image the commands are loaded near the tail end of rc.m. Where under Ubuntu is the best place to insert the commands?

This could also work for your core hack. As I understand it, the core hack needs to be loaded before starting folding, so putting something like:
Code:
cat /proc/stat | awk 'BEGIN { TARGET_NCPUS=12 } ; { if ($1 == "intr") { for (i=NR-2;i<TARGET_NCPUS;i++) print "cpu" i S } ; S="" ; for (i=2;i<=NF;i++) S=S " " $i ; print }' > /tmp/stat.save && mount --bind /tmp/stat.save /proc/stat

cd /home/[user]/fah && sudo -u [user] screen -d -m ./fah6

in rc.local, should result in loading the core hack, and starting folding in a detached screen on boot of the machine. Once you are at the desktop, you can start a console, and type "screen -r" which will bring up the folding console.

I'm sure this will work for the folding client, but unsure if it will work for the core hack, and am wondering if any of you wish to give it a try.

I've been looking at rc.local, rc?.d and init.d. Looks like it would best go into rc.local, but I'm not sure how to get the core hack to launch. I've been playing with getting 12cores.sh to run as a startup program, but it will not run unless I use the line gnome-terminal -e 12cores.sh" to call the core hack as a separate terminal. Consequently, 12cores.sh launches in an indipendant terminal without sudo elevation, and waits for the sudo password. I'm not sure if the code will work properly directly from rc.local, or if I have to call 12cores.sh. if I do that, it will probably still wait for the sudo password. Is there any way to pass the sudo password from the gnome-terminal command so I don't have to type sudo password into the child terminal?

Thread is locked due to guide being outdated. bigadv should not be folded on these processors anymore.
