Help installing SMP F@H on Ubuntu. - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm a little confused by your post rippon it is very clear to me. I went to my folder where the stuff was dl'd and extracted to home/folding/FAH then typed chmod +x FAH-fah5 said no such directory I also tried chmod +x fah5, this didn't give me an error so I tried the ./fah5 and it still says no such file/directory any more ideas?

I know you said you no longer need help, but I just wanted to post and clear it up and maybe help some of you in the future.

Rippon's post is pretty much dead on right, but I'll go into more detail.

Ok so you downloaded the file and saved it in you home folder (ie. /home/dangeroushobo/FAH504-Linux.exe)


In a terminal type:
cd ~/
mkdir ~/folding
mv FAH504-Linux.exe ~/folding
cd folding/
sudo chmod +x FAH504-Linux.exe -OR- sudo chmod +x FAH <press TAB> Note: tab completes the line
./FAH <press TAB>

I think some of you were trying to do tab complete or something with the ./fah5, but didn't say to press tab. Also Unix/Linux is case sensitive. So ./FAH....

I forgot to tell him to sudo. Doh! Sorry.

I think the reason it didn't work for you though is because you weren't in the right directory. When you open a console it defaults to the home directory. But the file you wanted was in folding/FAH.

Keep on trying with Linux. Everything new is going to take some time to learn. It is a little different than Windows, but it isn't harder to use once you learn it. It is like driving an automatic vs. a manual.

If you ever need more help in the future PM me or post a thread and I will do my best to help you. I encourage you to continue to learn basic console navigation and use. At first it is really hard to get a hold of, but once you learn the basics, picking up the other stuff is like a snowball cascading down a snowy slope.

I did a quick search on Google for basic Linux commands. These look like a some decent ones.

Most of these work on Ubuntu. But with Ubuntu, it is important to note that when you need 'root' access, you use 'sudo'. So, sudo command -arg

NOTICE this is ONLY the Basic list. I also offer a list of commands for:
Beginning Server Administration
Files and Permissions
Directory navigation
Commands for Guru-Wannabees
There are tons of learning resources out there. All it takes is a little effort to have a very rewarding Linux experience.

Bah, I didn't like Ubuntu and the constant sudo "xxxxxxxxx" stuff. I'm always logged in as ROOT on FC6.

But seriously, look at my posts in the Linux forum, you'll see I had NO IDEA how linux worked. I DID mess up my partition the first time, and other times after that (but I learnt the Windows Repair + FIXMBR command very quickly)

IT will be better when FAH-SMP is functional in a 32bit environment... but even then I've been watching videos, listening to music, got my NTFS partition to play nice with Linux... I'm on Firefox right now in linux.

Good luck to all who attempt Linux: It'll help this team regain the prestige it once had as one of the fastest growing teams of all.

When I get my new stuff (Mobo + RAM + Optical) I'm going to build me a cheap Pentium D 805 rig and have it SMP fold. That way I won't have to fuss around with being on Linux.

What exactly is SMP folding? I got confused on their site whether it was dual-core, 64-bit, or both.
