[Solved] Help With bigadv in VMWare

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to get my x6 to fold bigadv by running Ubuntu 10.10 in VMWare. I've managed to set it all up to the point where I'm able to get a bigadv WU, but it's only folding on 1 core. Any idea how I can get it folding on all 6 cores?

I'll post what the client looks like in code tags below.

Code:

Any help you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated

Edit: I think I followed these steps perfectly, but can you guys check and make sure I did?

4) Now follow this closely. Change memory to 2048mb. Click OK. UNcheck "Power on after creation" and then finish setup of the VM. Now go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Notepad. Go to File>Open and navigate to C:UsersyouruserDocumentsVirtual Machines"Name of your virtual machine" and open the "VMWare Virtual Machine Configuration" file that's there, it should have the name of the VM you created.(make sure, while browsing, you change from .txt files only to "All files" to see it) Add 6 next to "maxvcpus". Also add a line with "numvcpus=6". Save the file and go back to VMware.
Code:
.encoding = "windows-1252"
config.version = "8"
virtualHW.version = "7"
vcpu.hotadd = "TRUE"
maxvcpus = "6"
numvcpu = "6"
scsi0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0.virtualDev = "lsilogic"
memsize = "2048"

Wow, I'm an idiot

I forgot to add a "s" to the end of "numvcpu"

It's working perfectly now, so if you want to feel free to delete this thread.

I can run this chip stable at 4.31ghz @1.52v, but I'm afraid my motherboard might explode (these motherboards have been known to do that), so for now I'm content running it at 4.24ghz @1.45v.

Are you running your 1090t in native linux, or are you using VMWare too?

native ubuntu 4.3ghz 1.525v about 31k ppd on a p6900

unless ur mobo has 4+1 power phase, i'd think its safe to run up to 1.55v.. especially under water

It does have 4+1 power, and this motherboard in particular has been known to blow VRM's with these X6 chips. I've been very lucky so far that it hasn't had any problems with my chip, but I don't want to chance it and push it further.
