Linux SMP

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well, I got Windows SMP setup on my sig rig, but now I have a HP computer that is doing nothing, and I have it all set up with Linux on it...

I went to dowload the Linux SMP on the site, but how do I install it on Ubuntu?

Also, is my AMD 4600+ fast enough to run SMP? I heard it should only be run on higher-end PC's.

Yea your 4600+ will do fine. Not quite as good as say a C2D or Quad, but it will work. I used to fold SMP on my old Opteron 165 at 2.2-2.4ghz. I think in WinSMP it was 1 WU every 36 hours. It was quite a bit faster in Linux, but i forget by how much. AMDs tend to do much better in Linux. Not sure about the newer chips though.

Open terminal.
Login as root. Then:

# mkdir /folding
# cd /folding
# wget http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandeg...eta1-Linux.tgz
# tar xzf FAH6.00beta1-Linux.tgz
# ./fah6 -smp

That will make the folder, go into the folder, download F@H into the folder, extract the archive, and start F@H.

To run it for the next times:

Login as root.

# cd /folding
# ./fah6 -smp


That should do it. Thats how i have always done it on Linux.

The -smp flag listed above is one of the important differences between WinSMP and Linux SMP. Without that flag, the client functions the same as the basic Windows console. With the flag, it crunches SMP WUs, so be sure to include the flag at all times even when doing stuff like running the -configonly flag (I'm not quite sure why it's necessary when running configs, but I've seen this strongly recommended and it's better to be safe than sorry).

Thanks for that... but can you be a bit more specific? I am so noob at Linux its depressing.

First of all, where can I find "terminal"?

The location of the terminal depends on the distro. You should be able to find it pretty easily by browsing their version of the "Start" menu or else via a program menu. It will be called something logical like Terminal or X-Terminal in many cases.
