Vmware 1.0.4 + Ubuntu Guide - Page 20

How long do you think it will be till you have the guide updated?
Latest, tomorrow night. I have some friends who are home on spring break from different colleges throughout NC, so I'm going to try and catch up with them.

Both current WU's are at 69%, averaging around 10-10.5min per % to complete. They should be done soon. If they upload without any errors, then we know the previous issues with VMware 2.0+ARCH was strictly VMware 2.0.

I will have to re-do most of the guide because VMware 1.0.4 interface is slightly different. Though if VMware 2.0 has been working without issues, I would continue using it.

When I get home later on I will post results of the current WU's I am folding on. If all is successful I will TRY to get some of the guide updated later tonight. Hope this helps Wire!

I have tried VM1.04 in the past and it just didn't want to work with Vista 64bit, this VMserver seems to be the only thing that runs on my system.

Update: I have succesfully sent another 2 WU's with VMware 1.0.4+Ubuntu. As of right now we now ver 1.0.4 does not work with vista/XP 64-bit. Bal3Wolf and I are talking about some ideas on how those users who use such OS's can use this setup.

For now I will start updating the walkthrough for VMware 1.0.4+Ubuntu distro Bal3Wolf edited and hopefully we can come up with something to resolved the 64-bit issue.

sounds good, i'm running XP, so i should be ok. let me know as soon as you get it 100% stable, and get the walkthrough completed. once i get the ok, i will try it out on one of the quads, if it works good, i will have the entire farm running on it! keep up the good work guys!

I'm still crunching away with VM server 2.0 beta and Ubuntu. Stanford is finally counting my WUs too, so everything looks good so far.

I had some friends from out of town over, had some beers, grilled some steaks and dogs, so I didn't get anything done tonight. I will be busy tomorrow but plan on starting the update process. I will post asap for those out there who are giving it a go.

I talked to Bal3Wolf and we agree that if VMware 2.0 and Ubuntu are working 100% without any 'INTERRUPTED' errors, then continue using both. We are not fully sure why 2.0 seems to get the error, and 1.0.4 does not. But for those who have had issues, VMware 1.0.4 + Ubuntu has been working for 3 days now, not issues what so ever.

I will post tomorrow when I get everything in order to update the walkthrough! Thanks again guys!

IMO its probably due to the beta status of 2.0. Likely that they don't have all the needed support for newer hardware controllers.

Any advantage to using the Ubuntu setup over Suse? I have 3 Suse VM's running on a dual Xeon box and all three are taking 19-20 mins/%. Even with 3 vm's it seems slow to me, there are 8 cores available after all. Just wondering if there's any reason the Ubuntu setup might have better performance?

The ARCH and Ubuntu distro's we are using were modified by Bal3Wolf, there is no graphical aspects, GUI, like the other distro's. It is strictly command prompt case OS. He eliminated as much of the unusefull things he could when editing the distro. The Ubuntu we have working now uses less memory then the previous ARCH distro did. Depending on how fast your CPU' clocks are, each % per min may vary. My system, a Q6600@ 3.4ghz and RAM of 4-4-4-12@947mhz, I run two instances of Ubuntu in VMware. I am averaging around 10-10.5min per % on both SMP clients. SO I averaging around 17.5-18hrs or so for both WU's to complete.

Thanks....this is on a Dell Precision workstation at work. So I can't play with settings etc.....and it probably came with whatever RAM they could source the cheapest. But I'll probably try your distro....can't hurt to try right?

Edit - Just looking at the math, I should be around 22hrs for 2 WU's which isn't terrible I guess.
