Setting up SMP in Ubuntu help.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have very little experience with Linux and I can't get the FAH5 running. I created a directory, downloaded the client, installed it (I think) and I can't seem to get past this point; I'm sure it's something simple and I just don't know what it is. Please help me with these last steps.

Your almost there. You need to install one more set of 32bit libs in order for the client to launch. Run this command and you should be set.

Looks like a permissions issue. Try logging in as root, or using sudo in front of all your commands. I find for folding rigs it is just easier to log in as root.

I haven't figured out how to log into root with Ubuntu; I've tried a couple of times.

Log in the account you set up originally.

Then go up to the System Menu -> Administration -> Login Window.

In the Login Windows Preferences, select the Security Tab, then put a check next to "Allow local system administator login"

You should be able to log out, and then log back in as root.

Awesome, thanks again. This was a lot easier to set up with your help. I could have been Google'ing for hours.

Permissions are the only thing I don't like about Linux. The permissions to Read/Write/Execute (CHMOD on servers) really toy with me sometimes All I can say is log in as root because you won't have to put "sudo" before all your commands. sudo basically executes the line of code you ran as the root user, which has all the permissions unlocked.
