Budget BOINC Server Club - Page 19

post #181 of 539
The DL580 is up and running. Installing Ubuntu 16.04 now. This thing is a monster! Still have to install the E7-4870's. Wanted to see what I'm dealing with. Not any different from a desktop as far as I can tell. So far anyway.

When you say monster - you mean 'MONSTER' just like my 980 tongue.gif
Look at you 4thkor, you certainly do not do things by halves thumb.gif Look forward to seeing some pics, although from the description of this rig, I may need a bigger monitor to view it biggrin.gif

It weighs 100 lbs. All I could do to get it up on the desk. But she fired right up!

Depressing news.... This model of DL580 will only support two E7-8XXX's. mad.gif

BUT i FOUND THE RIGHT CHASSIS FOR $50!!wheee.gif

Live and learn, I guess. But it's up and running with 40 c/t's instead of 32. And I went back to my tried and true Mint. I hate Ubuntu....

Mint is based on Ubuntu... If you disliked the GUI...

sudo apt-get install cinnamon

Logout, right click name. Log in with cinnamon.

(as far as the europe thing, the exchange rate is down the drain now)

Mint is MUCH faster on this thing. And I don't care for the newer version of BOINC Manager. Doesn't have the event log. Or I couldn't find it.

I'm happy with it.thumb.gif

Not sure about faster... Might be a bit subjective on that one.

Could have been anything from a diver/HW accel thing to the need to do apt-get update or upgrade.

Oh well. As long as you're happy with your set up. biggrin.gif

I'd be a lot happier if it would run all four E7-4870's. Come to find out there are system board differences I didn't realize. And I blew another $50.00 on a barebones with the same specs. Made an offer on the right main board. Waiting to see.

I thought this was the "budget" Boinc Server Club! Not hardly......
