bigadv VM on a 1090t - Page 4

post #31 of 40
So this "Wubi" addition needs to ,let just say, run along side Windows, it is not optional? Is it a Linux distro that is making use of part of the Windows file management system? I think it is google time for me.

OK, I find this "wubi" is a installation tool for people that have issues installing a Linux distro. About 6 months ago I started playing around with Fedora 14 (it was in Beta) I had some basic noob Linux issues but nothing so drastic. I kind of liked Fedora 14 but I am not stuck on it, I ask

Can I set my smp folding client up with Fedora 14 or is this a case of reinventing the wheel. Can I use Fedora 14 to setup my -bigadv folding client or is this another case of unnecessary work?

Should I do just as you say and do the wubi/ Ubuntu setup. I am not pressed for time, it is summer vacation and I need to get more experience in Linux and I am not prone to throwing things (I have patience) I did say I had all already(for the smp rig) but I seem to be short a hdd,this will take a few days to get here. On the i7 rig I will modify, I already have an activated copy of Win 7 on it so I would prefer dual boot, but if it must go I have the key and it is not so much trouble to make it exclusive Linux, what say you Grandpa? If you come up with other links that will make this easier I will forever be in your debt.

Even though you say "no gain" on an smp rig, I think I would like to do that one first, just to get a feel for things. The smp rig would be what is listed in my sig (except for P/S and hdd and no water but a Megahalems). I would shoot for a mild 3.6 OC (this is a brand NIB cpu also)Case is a test rig.Simply something to get used to working at the terminal. I have used the installation of folding apps before to help me grasp techniques, I think it is a fun way to learn.

Back in late '09 on the 2p system I was running I pulled 4GB of memory out of it to put in the 4p I was building. The bigadv it was running was lost after restarting so that's why I'm very cautious when it comes to bigadv WU's.
I save the folding folder to desktop and disconnect from the router before I make any changes. I leave it unpluged untill the WU is close to finishing. If I loose the WU I just delete the bad folder and copy and paste a good one back. I have found that the only way to accurately test is by using the same WU to test with. Although I have made a mistake from time to time and forgot to copy the current WU to desktop.

You got me with the edit. I do not know anything about Fedora. I have only been around Linux for a short time and by the way the learning curve can be difficult and time consuming at times. I do recommend running duel boot though because there are really no good OC tools for Linux compared to Windows tools. I use Windows to do all of my OCing and testing of the OC. Then boot to Linux for folding. You can do stand alone installs of Linux and Windows on the same rig using partitions.

PCCstudent, here's a link to how I setup -bigadv on my x6 -bigadv-x6-native-linux-post#12850043

That's the way I use to run SMP also, just disregard anything that dills with bigadv.

It should work on Fedora 14 but I haven't figured out how to get ext3 on it. I get an error message about the image I'm using needs ext4

Ubuntu and Fedora should have the same fill since they are both running gnome.

I am not stuck on doing this with Fedora. If there is more help to be had here with a Ubuntu install then I will. It seems the key is going to be this hdd writing technique,one is good and one is very bad. Here is what I can do, I will try to setup an smp folder with Ubuntu and make good notes on the problems and I will try and setup a Fedora 14 smp folder ,making the same notes. Then last of all I modify one i7 machine for dual boot -bigadv.Now I need a couple of hdd's

Installing Linux OS is not difficult and my guess is Fedora would be about the same as Ubuntu. Ubuntu 10.10 has a software manager that makes installing allot of the software pretty simple. v7 of FAH can be installed with the installer, v6 has to be done manually. FahMon can be installed on Linux for tracking v6 there are some good guides and you can just copy and paste the commands to the terminal. The learning curve I mentioned can be lessened by just asking for help the problem is most people that try to help have allot of experience and use terms that you do not know or understand. Being a male I was not bright enough to ask for more detailed instructions and spent several hours searching the net for answers to questions and trying things that did not work. Any way if you need help just ask somebody will answer with something that you can understand sooner or later.

Honestly the easiest route is Ubuntu 10.10 with V7. Just Install the OS, do the updates and from the V7 download page open the file and let software manager do the install. After that follow a V7 setup guide and your done. I did that a couple days ago and already finish a 2684 wu with a tpf of 30 min and now Im working on a 2685 at a pace of 22:30. Not to bad for a 2600k @ 4800Mhz.

It is late and I am up I thought I would note that I have Fedora 14 loaded but I am working to get network connectivity. I don't know how to check like I would in Windows device manager if a driver for the NIC came over during the install. This same rig was on my network as a Vista box and I was running my Apache server out of it so I had my Untangle assign a static for the outside and it was simply from the "pool' on the inside. I do not know what configuration was lost or what stayed. In the morning I will connect to my Comcast line (not on the Untangle) and see if that moves things along.If still no network connectivity I will look for the Fedora version of device manager and check my NIC status, this can't be so hard.I must learn how to do all this same windows stuff with a distro.

OK: I am just playing with Fedora as this machine will be my webserver, no more Apache on XP,it will be Apache on Fedora (there is a tutorial to setup Fedora 14 as a webserver).I must wait for a couple of hdd's to get here to make the Ubuntu rigs. I have some time to try all these out. Hard to say if these boxes stay Linux boxes or what I do with them, now it is just get used to working with the "other guys".
