[Ubuntu] Setting up big-bigadv (P6903) for dedicated 2600k - Page 50

post #491 of 771
I managed to fix the issue. I figured out i had simply written something incorrectly in one of the scripts. The only issue I have now is that Windows is completely unusable when folding in Linux, everything freezes and becomes unresponsive. It takes 30 seconds to open a browser!

Anyone know a fix for this?

OK, I'm glad I refreshed by browser before posting about the error. If you found the issue that's fantastic.

About the Windows stability issue, I can't offer any insight, I have no issue using Windows while folding in the VM. We do have different machines and I do use VMplayer, but I can't really say if those differences are meaningful.

I found an issue to that as well actually. I just set the max CPU usage of VirtualBox to 90% so I can still browse in Windows.

So I need to get stable again before restarting folding but maybe we can still think of any possibilities in the meantime.
You could always run off a restored backup from a bigadv WU, as then you could just close langouste so that it can't be returned...and then you don't have to worry about "hurting the science" or the project...

I'm sure that someone will have a backup that they can send over to you if you want to do that...

I was going to ask how much RAM you've got, and how much is assigned to the VM; it could be that the VM was using all, or almost all, of your system's RAM and therefore Windoh!s couldn't get enough free blocks to work........but if you're happy with that method....

I just don't know if it's worth the headache right now, I should be able to work one and hopefully get my CPU stable tomorrow.

In the meantime I would appreciate any thoughts, especially from Digi as I think he and I have the best chance of solving this, of why I have 12 cores detected, "-smp 8 -bigadv" shown correctly, it starts 8 threads and runs them fine and has 5gb of RAM to play with in the VM but it still didn't pull anything but SMP WUs. As far as I can tell those are the only big things that could be throwing of it's ability to get the big/huge WUs and they are all correct but still of the 4-5 WUs I got while it was running all were SMP.

I suspect it's actually set up properly now, but the queue.dat file has already got you assigned since you first set it up and might not have had it right for bigadv's..

Try:
1 - give -oneunit flag, and let it exit out after a work unit is finished
2 - delete "work" folder
3 - delete "queue.dat" file
4 - edit client.cfg and change machine ID to something other then what it was

restart, see what happens
post #497 of 771
Alright thanks for that, I will give that a shot next time I start folding again after getting my CPU stable. Is the client.cfg in the F@H folder that I shared in the VM? Where did that folder end up when I shared it because I can't find it in windows to set up HFM.

The fah folder in Ubuntu should be \\home\\username\\fah\\

And from windows would be \\\\vmname\\fah\\

You will only see activity in the Langouste window while it's transmitting work units. If your rig's busy folding away it should remain idle.
