I have reworked this guide to remove the parts about bigadv folding as it no longer applies to the majority of CPUs we all use. If you have a CPU that is capable of doing the 16 core work units, please see my YouTube channel for the bigadv setup.

Hey guys,

I've been wanting to do this for a while now and I finally got the time to do it today. What I've done is made a video series that covers every aspect of setting up Ubuntu folding. The videos are in order of how they should be set up and will cover everything in a step by step format.

I did most of the folding setup using Digi's guide (which can be found HERE), so a special thanks to Digi for allowing me to use that. Also, a huge thanks to robbo2 for showing me how to get VMWare Player to use all 8 threads of my 2700k!

I've spent a lot of time setting up my own rigs and helping others set up theirs, so I thought this would really be helpful. Digi's guide is a great resource as well, so while you are running through the setup, I do recommend that you have his guide pulled up as well (it's easier to cut and paste from his guide than try to type everything out).

What you will find is:
  • How to download and install VMWare Player 3.0.0
  • How to install Ubuntu 10.10 in the Virtual Machine (VM)
  • How to set up the folding client in Ubuntu 10.10 (either in the VM or native)
  • How to make VMWare Player 3.0.0 use more than 4 cores/threads of the CPU
  • How to auto set the priority of the VM so it does not cause lag on your rig
  • How to create a desktop shortcut and auto start the VM when Windows boots


I've been through these setups over a dozen times (though for the most part they were months ago), so I know that each works. I've also set this up in Ubuntu native a few times, so I know that works as well.


If you are wanting to set up Ubuntu native you would just need to use the 2ndvideo. I have used these steps to setup the folding client in Ubuntu 10.10 native and I know that it works. I have not tried setting it up on any other version of Ubuntu as from everything I've read the folding client is optimized for version 10.10. I may look at running through a setup on the latest version of Ubuntu (12.xx?), but for now, this setup has managed to keep me at the top of the Team Competition for the last few months, so I see no need to try to move to a newer version of Ubuntu.



Just click on the spoiler's below to show the videos...
How to install Ubuntu 10.10 in VMWare Player 3.0.0 (Click to show)



**Note on updating Ubuntu 10.10 after initial install**

You will need to follow the steps below before you do the updates in the video as 10.10 is no longer serviced and is considered a legacy OS by the Ubuntu staff (at least that's how I understand it).

Big thank you to mmonnin for finding this:

This is meant to be a comprehensive guide (covering every step of the process), so if there is something you think I have missed, please let me know so that I can get it corrected.


If you guys have any questions or need any help with the setup, please post here and we'll all do our best to help out. If you don't get a response in a day or so, feel free to shoot me a PM as well.

Also, I'll be adding a poll to this thread to see if the guides are helpful. If they are and the poll shows so, I'll also do videos on the client v7 setup and the GPU Tracker V2 setups. Also, I will in time be doing a comprehensive HFM setup video, so if you like these, keep your eyes peeled for that in the next few weeks.

Thanks for looking guys and I hope this helps you all get setup and running bigadv!!! thumb.gif





Edit 1: Added link to Digi's guide (which should have been there in the first place, but I forgot to put it in, sorry Digi).

Edit 2: Removed Bigadv wording/setup as it is no longer valid.

Awesome guide mate! Only thing is the video for the core fix and the video on how to use more then 4 threads in VM are the same one.

Nice work! Looked through the videos and they seem like they would help people get things started. I kinda liked how you kept your mistakes in there to show other people how to deal with it. thumb.gif

However, there is a few things I would like to suggest.

First, in the How to set up the folding client... video, when you go through the terminal profile for FaH. At the last option, When command exit, the dropdown menu you initially have Exit the terminal where per Digi's guide should be (and you later on have chosen) should be Hold the terminal open.

Second, in the Corefix video. I would like to see a mention of the command top, this can help to show that you are only running one instance of Fah. The task manager in WIn can only show so much.

Third, also in the Corefix video. While you go through the config of the FAH client, and you should choose no on advmethods while adding the bigadv flag, apparently it worked for you but there's a chance it won't.

Overall though, very good videos and I wouldn't have done it any better I'm sure, cred to you! smile.gif

Arvi, thanks for the suggestions, I have some other things I'm working on this week (namely a video series about how to set up HFM to monitor all the different clients, on different machines, etc), but I will try to go back and revise the videos to include your suggestions. The only suggestion I'm questionable about is the third one...I've used this on all of my setups and it has always worked. I'll try it without the advmethods and make sure that still works for me, I'm just a bit leary of this as it seems counter intuitive. But, I will try it and so long as it works, I'll make the change.

Thanks for the suggestions, I knew there would be some things that I would miss or not get quite right (it has been a few months since I've actually gone through the whole process) so I'm very open to any suggestions I can get. Thanks again!!! thumb.gif

This is a bookmark that I've had for a very long time. I'm sure a newer or Linux guide will have a similar note.

Guide For Running bigadv On Windows Natively

Notes:

4) If you are already running the latest F@H SMP2 Client and have been qualified for the Bonus Points, use the -oneunit flag. After the F@H SMP2 Client exits, replace -advemthods flag (if you have it) with -bigadv flag. Do not use both as -advmethods may override -bigadv.

Awesome, thanks for that. I've just always marked the advmethods in the config as yes and I've never had a problem getting 6903/6904 WUs. As I stated before, I'll go back and take a look at it and I may revise the video so long as I find I am still able to get 6903/04 WUs with that question marked as no.
