[Ubuntu] Folding With GTX 9xx Seriese Guide

post #1 of 71
Thread Starter 
Well since people are liking my post over how to overclock several GPUs in Linux, I thought I might as well put up a full guide on how to get F@H fully working in Linux.
What will you find in this guide?
Notice: this guide is written based on my experience with 3 GTX 970
Notice2: this guide is based on a freshly installed Ubuntu flavor, personally I use Kubuntu


  • How to set up proper drivers, problems you'll run across, etc...
  • Downloading and installing FAH
  • Configuring FAH to fold GPU
  • Overclocking multiple GPUs for better folding numbers


How to set up proper drivers Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Things to know:
  • CLI = Command Line Interface
  • CLI is accessed via keyboard shortcut CTRL + ALT + F1
  • DM = Display Manager
  • GUI = Graphical User Interface rolleyes.gif
  • This is a list rolleyes.gif

Well, this was a bit of a challenging part for me. What you will need to know is how to use Command Line Interface (CLI) in order to achieve installing the proper drivers to your system.
The main issue that I personally came across was that when I wanted to do anything through CLI, I end up with a black screen without a login prompt, and this is bad. Why is it bad? Well the only way to install NVIDIA drivers is to go through CLI and stopping your Display Manager (DM) service, that means no GUI. If you don't have GUI you will need to use CLI, but if you can't access CLI then it's doh.gif
So let's get right to it:

Obtain proper drivers for your GPU and make the package runnable/executable
  • First head to NVIDIA's drivers download page found HERE
  • Select your 9xx Series GPU and download the latest Stable driver, I personally do not get BETA drivers, You can try that.
  • Navigate to the location of your downloaded driver via Terminal and run this command
    Code:
    chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64*
    

Now that you have obtained and made the package executable, we will take a few extra steps before installing the drivers to ensure you will never come across the CLI screen not appearing, this seems to be a hit and miss issue, in order to avoid the hassle do the following:
  • Open Terminal
  • run this command
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
    
  • press Y to let it install, don't worry, they are not the correct drivers...... still don't worry, or worry.... up to you
  • reboot your PC
What's the purpose of this? Well sometimes nouveau doesn't do its job properly, and because of this module, it's the default display module for all Ubuntu flavors... generic crap, when it comes to GTX 9xx series the CLI won't be displayed. What happens when you install the drivers from the store via apt-get command is that it takes over the display module BUT since the driver was not made for our GPUs the resolution will be of that freshly installed windows 7. On the bright side, now you can access your CLI yessir.gif <--- pew pew time

Now it is time for the magic (to think that Linux is getting more user friendly lachen.gif .... said no one ever):
Things to know:
  • nouveau Must be blacklisted, it will conflict with everything you do, generic crap will always remain generic crap
  • You will have to stop your DM service (lightdm, mdm, kdm, etc...)
  • You will have to know how to start your DM

If you don't feel like you're a hacker, now is the time to feel like one, so act like one, and be paranoid and hope this will work out for you.

First access CLI (CTL + ALT + F1) and login
Now stop your DM service
Code:
sudo service lightdm stop
replace lightdm with whatever DM you are using

Let's blacklist nouveau while we're in CLI, how to achieve that is the following:
Code:
sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
and add the following lines to it:
Code:
blacklist nouveau
blacklist lbm-nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0
alias nouveau off
alias lbm-nouveau off

Let's remove those crappy NVIDIA drivers that gave you these crappy display resolution (who the heck suggested this crap anyways.... rolleyes.gif )
Code:
sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
typer.gif
^^^ feel like that yet?
Navigate to the location of your downloaded driver via CD command
now type
Code:
ls -l
just for giggle, to to fill your screen some more tongue.gif
anyhow, make sure you actually see the driver there, if so then run the following command (if not, well shizzle.... smile.gif ):
Code:
sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64*
NOTE: IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE DRIVER DO NOT RUN THAT COMMAND WITH A *, INSTEAD TYPE IN THE WHOLE FILE NAME.EXTENSION

Agree and Yes to everything the driver package tells you
Once it is done run
Code:
sudo reboot
When it reboots, you should be back in your GUI, if not (Still in CLI) run
Code:
sudo service lightdm start
replace lightdm with whatever DM you have

And that's all for driver installation process.

Downloading and Installing FAH Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It is no rocket science to install FAH, just linux science...
Download the client HERE
Download the control HERE
Optional: Download the viewer HERE
Download the latest GPUs.txt found HERE

Personally, I like to feel like I'm accomplishing something, so naturally I would head over to Terminal and do my stuff.
navigate to the location where you downloaded these files and install them:
Code:
sudo dpkg -i --force-depends fahclient*
Code:
sudo dpkg -i --force-depends fahcontrol*
Code:
sudo dpkg -i --force-depends fahvie*
IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE VERSION OF THE FAH* THEN SPECIFY THE FULL NAME.EXTENSION WHEN INSTALLING

During the installation of fahclient (or control, dont remember which), you will be prompted to enter username or be a ninja folder, you will be asked for you keyphrase, and a team that you're folding for. If this doesn't show up, worry not.... you can configure all this in the fahclient
Now that you've installed all the required stuff, you will find FAHClient in your start/kickoff/applications menu, open it, and configure your identity if you haven't already.

One problem you might come across, FAHClient will remain in connecting... phase, this is because fahcontrol has not yet been started, to start it do the following:
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/FAHClient start
now you will be able to configure if you weren't able to before, your status should be Connected

To stop it you do
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/FAHClient stop
To restart it
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/FAHClient restart

After you're done with configuring you identity, please stop the FAH service and go on to the next section.

How to fold with GTX 9xx series GPU Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It is time to copy the newly obtained GPUs.txt, from the previous steps, to the right location in order to get folding with the GTX 9xx series.
Again, I use terminal to do so, open terminal and navigate to the location of GPUs.txt
Code:
sudo cp GPUs.txt /var/lib/fahclient
that should let you fold with 9xx GPUs
I added an extra step for myself and also added that file in:
Code:
sudo cp GPUs.txt /etc/fahclient

Personally, I'd like to restart the PC after doing this, so Restart
Now open your FAHClient, if it is folding your CPU then you're good for the next step, if it is trying to connect then run
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/FAHClient start
now your client should be folding your CPU.
I have removed CPU folding from my list to do GPU folding, but that's because I have 3 GTX 970, when you try to add a slot right now, you should be able to add GPU, either you let it automatically choose the index (-1) or you specify it yourself. Index 0 being your first GPU. So add it, and add the other ones that you have based on the index, click on save
Congrats, You're now folding with GTX 9xx GPU

OMG, the PPD is O.o
Can't help but think that Windows Kernel probably wastes a lot of time doing things that should be done during the development phase, like debugging, tracing, taking breaks, etc..., maybe that's why the PPD in Windows is so low.

If you feel a little bit greedy, then the next section is for you

Overclocking multiple GPUs for better folding numbers Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

So in this section we will go over how to set up your machine so that it can overclock all your GPUs, not just one (if you have more than one), no bios flash required
let us begin
NOTICE: Your overclock will not stick upon reboot, you must re-overclock

the idea was to attach fake monitors to the other 2 graphics cards, do the coolbits 12 and overclocking became available for all 3.
and how to do that is simple, you modify your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

In ServerLayout section, you will add screens, mind the screen names, depending on how many graphics cards you have - 1, in my case i added 2 because i have 3
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Layout0"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
-->Screen      1  "Screen1" 0 0
-->Screen      2  "Screen2" 0 0
    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Next you add the fake monitors to your xorg.config
Code:
Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor1"
    VendorName     "Fake1"
    ModelName      "Monitor"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 94.0
    VertRefresh     48.0 - 85.0
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor2"
    VendorName     "Fake2"
    ModelName      "Monitor"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 94.0
    VertRefresh     48.0 - 85.0
EndSection

Next, make sure that all your devices are there in the xorg.conf file with their bus ID, most likely they are there but without, it will be better to include the bus ID like so:
Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BusID          "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device1"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BusID          "PCI:4:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device2"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BusID          "PCI:5:0:0"
EndSection

Now you add the Screen, must match the names of ServerLayout, in this step is how you assign your gpus to fake/real monitors,
notice Device has to match your Device section, and your Identifier has to be the same as Screen in ServerLayout
Code:
Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Device0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "Coolbits" "12"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen1"
    Device         "Device1"
    Monitor        "Monitor1"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "Coolbits" "12"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen2"
    Device         "Device2"
    Monitor        "Monitor2"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "Coolbits" "12"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection

Once you're done with that reboot your pc, login, open terminal and run the following command:
Code:
sudo nvidia-xconfig --cool-bits=12
This command is optional and you can use it IF putting (Option "Coolbits" "12" ) in xorg.conf file didn't work out for you
Reboot your pc again, then open the nvidia X server Settings, you will have overclock capabilities for all your gpus under PowerMizer and fan control option under Thermal Settings

good luck thumb.gif

Note for everyone, if you've found something else that I should include/fix/add/remove in/out/from/there/here/that/then/yes/no/banan/etc... the guide please do not hesitate to let me know

If you lose your overclocking capabilities due to monitor not attached to a gpu, please look below
As @Klue22 posted, you might run into problems if you forgot to attach a monitor to one of your gpus
To fix this, please follow his post found HERE

It seems that it got put into the wrong queue somehow and got deleted. I got the problem fixed for us though.

Great job! Looks right to me, didn't want to read through the whole thing since it was giving me flashbacks to my experience with the nvidia drivers and lack of CLI...shudders*
