Working on things now...didn't realise how slow the Ubuntu ISO is to download - only getting ~80 kbps..!!
Haven't found anything that stands out as being relevant for running bigadv natively in Linux other than this
, which only shows how to do it under the old version (10.04 of Ubuntu, rather than the latest 10.10 version) and the 'official' Stanford guide
he latest v10.x Ubuntu (Debian) and Red Hat (Fedora) variant operating systems have manifested a library conflict in combination with the v6.29 SMP client. The error messages displayed are CosmHTTPOpen, Relocation, or Cannot get ID from Server. Until an updated client or OS resolves the conflict, there are several workarounds discussed in the Folding Support Forum including nscd, wine, VM, or a previous OS version.
So, once I've finished getting Ubuntu 10.04 downloaded, I'll start installing it on spare HDD on WKS04.
BTW, I'm also playing around with the HFM configurations, so don't expect it to be working until the end of the week...while I try to get the instance on WORK_PC to pull the log files from the instance on SRV01 directly - as it doesn't seem to be uploading to the existing site, meaning that the HFM instance on WORK_PC doesn't think that anything at home is running...but I seem to remember that when the one on SRV01 was updating locally (not up to the web) the logs were listed, so WORK_PC should be able to get the required details out of that and update itself, and then upload to that site....
I is playing with configs, don't expect the current http://www.team111.co.uk
link to be working for a few days.
