Just use the windows client to gpu fold. My understanding is the gpu has no benefits from either OS except the linux one is much harder to setup. Use vmware for you cpu as that client is much better then use the windows client for your gpu.

I'm not sure but if it was me, I'd just re-install because it only takes about half an hour.

I can't see the image [work blocks imageshack and imgur], so can you upload the picture to OCN as a post attachment? Then I'll see if I can help.

AFAIK this is the best option for yielding the most PPD. Native windows with a VM of Linux.

Reformatting is a Windows solution, and it's a non-solution anyway. If you don't know what you did to cause the problem, chances are good you'll end up doing it again.

It's a terminal login window with:

Ubuntu 10.10 mlb11uk-virtual-machine tty1

For cpu folding yes but for gpu folding no. I only suggest a re-install because if he decides not to use the linux client for his gpu then he won't have this problem because he won't install the client.

It's what I do for my sig rig. I use V2 for the gpu's and vmware with ubuntu 10.10 for my cpu.

Lets try this first, OP:

Log in as your normal user and try to start x from the terminal with 'startx' or 'xinit' [you can try both].

If it's the X server crashing, it will throw out some output from the log before closing. Copy the lines that start with '(EE)' and we'll move from there.

If he ends up moving back to Windows, he ends up with Windows. But he's asking for help fixing Linux for now, and reinstalling to fix the X server is throwing out the baby with the bathwater.
