Best guide to run Kubuntu natively off of.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just burned my .iso's. Not knowing what was best I downloaded both the 32 and 64 bit versions of the latest Kubuntu version (I think it was 13.04,let me check). I ask what is the best guide to use considering how our guide tutorial section is both dated and in flux (meaning editors are looking to upgrade the guide tutorial section). Again, any advice on what guide and version (32 or 64-bit) to use?

EDIT: yes it was Kubuntu 13.04 I decided to go with. At times (OK "in the olden days" your selection of 32 or 64-bit was very important (perhaps this was more related to VM setups).

Well, since this is GUI based, you should be able to install it and then get everything from Stanford. There shouldn't be anything extra you'd have to do. Unless under some weird circumstance it doesn't have drivers for your hardware when you're installing. Which I doubt will happen.

edit: You'll need video drivers if you're planning on folding an Nvidia card. If we're talking about your GTX 275 in your WC Rig, it won't be able to do Core 17, so it won't fold in Linux.

ZD, 32 or 64-bit?

EDIT: It is odd my EOC ranking is 140 but on my Avatar it seems stuck at 144

EDIT: lets see if doing this move gets me more than 50Kppd (which is pretty average for my gear).

EDIT: I think I will go straight cpu work until I can get the correct gpu.

You'll need 64-bit.

The folding stats on OCN are messed up right now. The powers that be know about it and are working on it.

OK ZD,64-bit it will be.I will simply put my gpu's (it was only one 9800GTX+) in another motherboard until I get a compatible gpu. I have already picked up another 8084 so I let this run through the night and do the switch in the morning. Thanks + rep

Cool beans. Just say something if you need help with anything

I was wondering, with the tutorials we have available what is the best one for me to work with when installing and configuring Kubuntu 13.04 64-bit? I have made all my rig and loop changes, now it is time to load the pq1 with Kubuntu and configure.

EDIT: I guess I am asking if the Stanford install tutorial is better than any we have on forum.

Just use the Stanford install guide.  There isn't anything else you really need to do, so no need to check out the guides.

Thanks Anubis. I would like to get good at this type of install (and others like multi gpu) so I can pass the info down the line to others. I am not at all ready to do this. I always had this contest idea. The contest is see who can do the install the fastest and with the fewest errors. We could even have different classes (like novice, journeyman, expert). All I have is the idea, how to actually setup a install competition I am not so sure how to get it done. It would be interesting to see the "tricks" our top "dawgs" use to make things go fast.
