PS3 F@H PC client?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is there any pc client out there that can view the PS3's folding progress? I'd really like that, because it's kind of annoying that I have to keep the TV turned on if I want to know how I'm doing =/.

Possibly with Fahmon and network file sharing, but I don't know how the PS3 client works and if it will allow you to view files from the network.

Shame really, if the client doesn't export the data Fahmon requires, that probably means no other client will support it either =/.

Wow, sorry about that.

The only reason that I monitor my systems is to make sure they didn;t crash. I would bet that your PS3 is folding fine, even without you checking the stats.

Actually it is possible to do this, but not inside of the PS3 OS, you would have to install ubuntu and install F@H inside of linux. This would inevitably fold with lower PPD because in ubuntu the OS is only able to access 2 cores, if linux was able to tap into the RSX GPU and it had a reliable GPU folding client it would be worth doing..maybe in time we will see.. *JaKe*

The drop in performance when switching to Linus on the PS3 is not an option either, so I guess having it on the tv will have to do. It would just be nice to be able to see it on here alongside my PC client.
