OK, As per BWG's suggestion, I have got oracle virtual box to install.

I also will need a differnt VM to work with the Oracle virtual box software, I think I have found this here

I will try it out and you guys know if it works.

After folding in Oracle VirtualBox for 3 days using notfreds ISO for smp wu's (A3) , I was only able to average 22000ish ppd (calculated thru HFM on the completed units).

Tho this is faster than Windows SMP (For me) by 33% , But I think slow for a 2500k at 5ghz ( yes, I am stable)

I have now switched clients in vBox to a bigadv capable client (also an ISO) that I installed onto a Virtual HDD.

I started this machine out with 8 cores on the vmachine and also set the client to 12 cores. I was able to dl a 6097 WU.
( I think this is just an 8 core WU?) Anyway...the vbox machine would run my CPU to 100% but no work was being done.
I stopped the machine and set the Cores on the Vmachine to 4 and I was in business with a TPF of 9:37

Now That again seems pretty slow from what I am reading on the internets...
SO... I reset the Client to 4 cores and my TPF is now 8:13 and dropping even while Browsing and writing this post .
But still that seems slow. Or is it??

Has anyone else out the done a 6097 wu on a high clocked 2500k and if so what is your TPF?

I would like to know if there is and Issue with speed in VirtualBox VMs as I does seem semi easy to use and I did have Issues with VMware not installing (tho that could be solvable via google)

And also, Which core count determines the WU's that you get the VM or the Client ??

Thanks


Edit: When this WU drops I will break 5 Million Points!!!

That client you use will not fold bigadv. Every wu you get is regular SMP, but 6097, 6098, and 6099 are larger work units that do yield more points. Changing the processor count in the control panel is a bad idea. You should leave that at 4 cores. It should represent the number of physical cores/threads your chip has, which is 4.

 

If you want to try and fold bigadv, you will need a much higher overclock, better ram, and a VM of Ubuntu 10.10 with a corehack installed. Nice increase in PPD though!

The op has an overclock of 4.9 which should be good. The ram however, may be slowing him down for bigadv. My 2500k at 4.7 and 1600 ram will finish a 6901 and 6903 with time to spare.

I wil try to OC my ram with the current VM setup to see what performance I gain.

You can corefix this Slackware folding distro too (never used Notfreds, so maybe not that one).

Report back, I'd reckon you'd need about 25-28k PPD on SMP to be able to reliable do the 6904 in time.

That is the Distro I am currently using, Having installed from the ISO onto a VHDD inside the VirtualBox Machine.

I did some fixes and have got VMware to install now, also tried to bring my ram up but 1600 cas 9 is about all I figure ill get out of it at 1.65 v. Did a little testing and this only dropped my tpf by 2 seconds on a 6098 WU to 7:49 (25500 ppd) and I didnt know if it was long term stable so I dropped back to my rated speeds. I also think I am Stability limited on the IMC as I am running 4 sticks on a 5ghz OC.

I can tell you that this ram was not easy to get doing anything other than rated speed.

I will transition to VMware tonight and see what the difference is between it and VirtualBox.
