Ubuntu on VMserver 2.0 beta is still crunching away and submitting WUs with no problems. Looks like this distro is fixed the INETRRUPTED error and is stable for me.

Good to hear the results. I will be formatting this weekend again in hopes of this working.
post #206 of 772
Thread Starter 
I am now folding with no issues/problems and or 'INTERRUPTED' errors for the past 4 days straight. I will be home this evening, finally have some free time, and will update the guide.

We are still unsure what the exact issue was, whether it be ARCH/VMware2.0/XP/Vista... The reason I say this is because some users have had no problems with the VMware2.0+ARCH/Ubuntu. Though many have, and now that I have switched back to VMware 1.0.4 + Ubuntu, I have had no problems either. So it leads me to believe it was not ARCH at all, but either VMware 2.0/XP/Vista. I think it just depends on each system, but it does seem odd. But that is all behind us now.

So my advice to all, if VMware 2.0+ARCH/Ubuntu has been working for you without any issues at all, keep using it unless you want to swtich to the new setup.

The new setup will be compromised of:

VMware 1.0.4 + Ubuntu.

The only clitch here is you XP/Vista 64-bit users, you will be stuck with using VMware 2.0 beta unless we can find another way around that. If some of you'll want to test it who are running the 64-bit versions, try installing VMware 1.0.4 and running it, if it doesn't run maybe trying the compatibility options, setting it too 2000 or something. I would appreciate the feedback on those results. So for all those others users who are running regular 32bit XP/Vista, I shall have the guide updated for Dual/Quad core machines.

Also a note to all, CD himself has the new Skulltrail setup with 2xQuad's. We are looking forward to seeing the results from a VMware+Ubuntu setup, and how much horsepower the setup has for folding@home, the results should be around 4 WU's or more a day just from that rig itself. It will depend on how high the clocks are and how fast per % he will be getting. Thanks all again, and thanks for being patient, I have had friends from out of town home this weekend, you know how it is. PhelanJKell and the brains Bal3Wolf!

UPDATED:
Main OP has been updated with most of the updates for VMware 1.0.4+Ubuntu. More will follow later tonight. If you are an advanced VMware/Linux user you can figure out the rest from there, but I will post more of the walk-through later tonight! If you see any errors/miscommunication please let me know via this thread or PM. Thanks all!
