I've set up a VM for bigadv but not bigbigadv yet, so we might need to ask lutro0 how it's done because I need to set one up too.


Luuuuuuuutroooooooo0000?
Woa woa woa, I did not make that site lol

However I do push it pretty hard for others to use as its what I use in all of my bigadv setups.

There is a guide for vmware HERE

If you have any questions please feel free to ask, vmware right now only supports 8 cores and thats on version 3.0 all the newer ones only support 4 (i beleive)

Virtualbox is the only vm that I have used that will allow for easy support of 12 cores, (just set the core count to 12 in the vm and the setup page for the client) You can also do this with a 2600k for an easy core hack. (set the vm to 12 and the setup page to 8)

At 4.5Ghz, if you dedicated that system to folding 24x7, running Linux so you can get the 6903 and 6904 wus (as long as you're folding in Linux and show 12 threads, you can get them), you could be up to 90k ppd. A 6903 will take a little less than 3 days and get you probably 285k pnts, while a 6904 will take a bit less than 4 days and garner well over 360-370k pnts.

You've tried to steal credit before I coulda sworn. Just kidding sorry for the mistake, I must have heard that from some misinformed trowl.

I don't think the VMware is applicable to anyone here thought because he has a hex core iwth HT and I'm trying to do the core hack to get hugeadv setup. So is there anything I ought to know to get that virtual box set up? As I mentioned in my PM the "guide" for that section is more daunting than the VMware that I've already done, it doesn't have like any pictures!

Lutro0 if you will be around here in one hour when I drop this bigadv I'm on now then maybe I'll try jumping into the deep waters of setting up a VM without pictures, but only if you are here in case I fail too hard. If you can help then I'll set this current WU to one unit and we'll get me doing some hugeadv today!

Two drives? One has windows and One has Linux with folding client. Why yes, yes you can.

I use Ubuntu 10.10. Don't use 11.04, as there are issue with it. Use the 6.34 f@h client.

If you find yourself stopping the folding to go to windows regularly, you might want to try it in a VM instead of native. It will impact your folding a little, but less than pausing a lot.
