I did a little experiment with the "8cores.sh" in this guide.

ubuntu-a-linux-n00bs-guide-to-running-bigadv-and-big-bigadv-on-x6-and-2500k

I ran the script from a terminal so I could see the output using this ( Prompt$ ./8cores.sh ). I was asked for my password and then it returned to the prompt.

I then opened up stat with a text editor ( /proc/stat ) and in the image below you'll see that my X6 1100T now has 8 cores. Unfortunately when I ran my folding client I still got an A3 WU.

338

I haven't been able to get my X6 1100T to go above 3900 MHz but when this current WU completes in a few hours I'm going to try the "12cores.sh" script to see if I can get a big or huge WU.

so far even following those guides I get error messages with the core fix. It is always with the awk and a closing }. Using my old corefix is the only way to have the computer show more then 4 cores

Ok so i just got my first 6903 WU thumb.gif. I ended up using my old script along with a new Ubuntu VM install pointed at by one of your guides. Hopefully my TPF will not be what others have claimed. I might not make the deadlines because this is also my main computer and like to game an hour a day and watch some movies.

Good news but for a few days go watch some movies at your local theater and play some pong at an arcade! biggrin.gifthumb.gif

Ya it is not looking to good. My first TPF was 86 minutes putting me over the deadline. Hopefully that wont keep up. I will let it run for 24 hours and then bail if it is looking bad. Are there any bigadv that are smaller then this (ie generally shorter TPF)?

I'm currently working on a 6903 with about a 63 min TPF. I expect it to finish around 4:30 PM Monday. The deadline is 8:30 AM Tue. That only gives me about 15-16 hours.

Lately I've gotten two different bigadv projects. The big (6901) takes me just under 2 days while the huge (6903) takes just over 4 days.

I would agree that a 86 min TPF doesn't look good. You have no control over which project you get.

If you have it set to 12 cores my advise would be to set it up for 8 cores and hope for a 6901 WU.

What I don't know is if the 8 core machines are even getting the 6901.

just bailed on the 6903 and got a 6901 right after. Glad I bailed when I did because even at 96% average CPU usage it was still at 79 minutes which is about 6 hours past the deadline so it would be way to close to use the computer for anything even at 98%

What clocks do you run in that 2500K?

It's pretty well know that if you have a 2500K/X6 and wants to fold the huge WUs it has to be pretty much dedicated, native Linux install and highly OC'd. But you found out the hard way, just be aware if your corefix still shows 12 cores you still have a chance of getting the 6903/6904 WU.

@msgclb: Your TPF on the 6903 seems really high for a 970, I get about 57-58 min with my 2500K@4.9 (dedi, native Ubuntu). What clock do you run? Native Linux? Do you have a lot of other things going on?

luckily I only lost 4 or 5 hours on trying the 6903. Ya I definitely would not be able to complete them without this rig being native Linux and dedicated to folding. Currently I am running at 4.7GHz and can get it up to 4.8 but it starts to get unstable at that point.

Native Ubuntu 10.10 and it does nothing but run SMP bigadv.

Before the 1st of Jan I had this rig running @ 4.0 GHz.
I tried to get it running @ 4.2 GHz for the TC but I couldn't get it stable.
This rig is back @ 4.0 GHz until I can make another attempt to OC it.

The Dark Predators passed us but tomorrow afternoon I know for a fact that 5-Bits will have over 2 million points. thumb.gif
