Fold on! biggrin.gif

Could you just include an 'installer' and have the user download/install the packages after initial first run?

An installer is included, like I said in OP the idea is that you boot, install, configure, leave. The installation is handled by the Arch Install Framework, and installs in exactly the same way as a real Arch install. I just included extra packages for folding and preconfigured some things.

I thought about having it download the packages during the install, but that wouldn't be a good idea if you have a farm as you'd need to download the same packages several times unless you set up your own repo, and that would be far more time consuming than having all the packages included in the ISO. It would bring the ISO size down to ~200mb though.

By the way the ISO comes with memtest86 included, it'll be on the boot menu you get when you boot from the ISO. Useful for overclocking biggrin.gif

On fermis the only way to overclock is by flashing your card with an OC'd bios. There's no software that does it unfortunately frown.gif The nvidia drivers are supposed to have the capability built in but it has never worked for me unfortunately.

On pre-fermis there is an application called nvclock that I believe can do it, but I've never used it so I can't vouch for it.

Temperature monitoring on both GPU types is handled by nvidia-smi, part of the driver package.

Same here. I'm getting close to completing my i7-950 build and something like this would be greatly useful.

Just donated my 320GB HDD for my Grandma's new computer build, so my Linux distribution is gone. This project is now even more interesting to me.

One word: Skyrim biggrin.gif

Yeah my monthly internet data is running low which is why I haven't touched this in a while, there's a big update I need to do for Arch that would not have made it through this month's data allowance. Which means later today/tomorrow I'm working on this smile.gif

Once that's done I'll see where I'm at and update the thread. smile.gif

What about something like MSI Afterburner? I use that all the time when I fold to manage my GPU temps, but not for oc'ing. Any chance that it'll run using something like Wine? Of course, it didn't have to be Afterburner specifically, just something that let me monitor the temps and change the fan speeds on the GPU.

My GPU fans refuse to increase speed by themselves if I don't do it manually...

That won't work AFAIK because afterburner/rivatuner use windows specific driver calls that wouldn't work with the linux driver, and even then they'd require a GUI which I'm not going to include in this distro. You could give it a shot on your own, but you're exactly that, on your own tongue.gif

I think you can change fan speed manually using the nvidia driver itself though, but I will need to double check that. If not then as with OCing you'd have to flash a custom tweaked BIOS to make the fan run full time, and I don't like the sound of that. Google time.
