[NEWS] New client version for -bigadv Folders - Page 13

Reinstalling and starting F@H from scratch also didn't fix the problem.

I am currently testing the Windows 6.34 client through wine again, but I have to finish my current SMP WU before it should attempt to get a bigadv. Has anyone else had experience with this? Is there actually a way to get bigadv WUs with the Phenom II X6 using the native linux client? Thanks.
The Linux client will not work for bigadv on an X6, you have to use the windows client through WINE to get bigadv's. I discovered this a couple days after the new client came out. Now I'm running the windows client through WINE and it works perfectly for bigadv.

That's exactly what it's doing. The 8 cores hack doesn't work on the native linux client, so you'll never pick up a bigadv with it. The hack does work on the windows client though, so you have to use the windows client through WINE to get a bigadv.

Excellent. Thanks for the confirmation
post #123 of 146
By the way the new client detects the number of cores differently so the old script that changes /proc/cpuinfo no longer works. This is what I used for the native linux client:

Code:
cat /proc/stat | awk 'BEGIN { TARGET_NCPUS=8 } ; { if ($1 == "intr") { for (i=NR-2;i<TARGET_NCPUS;i++) print "cpu" i S } ; S="" ; for (i=2;i<=NF;i++) S=S " " $i ; print }' > /tmp/stat.save
mount --bind /tmp/stat.save /proc/stat

Thanks for that. I made the code change. I finished up the SMP I was working on. Unfortunately, now I get the following and I can't get any new WU's. My internet connection is working fine. Traceroute to the server succeeds normally. I am not running firewall or antivirus software. Any ideas?


Code:
[16:11:23] - Connecting to assignment server
[16:11:23] Connecting to http://assign.stanford.edu:8080/
[16:11:24] Posted data.
[16:11:24] Initial: 0000; + No appropriate work server was available; will try again in a bit.
[16:11:24] + Couldn't get work instructions.

I'm getting the same thing, so it's a server issue.

Ah, something seems to be coming through now and it looks large enough to be a bigadv. Finally...

Were you able to pick up a bigadv with the linux client by using that script?

Yup. I tried the old script whe the 6.34 client was first released but it didn't work, so I tried this one and it's been working ever since.

No, the Linux client wasn't able to connect to the assignment server correctly. You seem to have to go through wine still if you own an X6. The above hack definitely works for the newest client, but I don't understand why the old modification of /proc/cpuinfo wouldn't work as well since the F@H client should be insulated by wine. Perhaps I'll try the old method at some point because it doesn't mess with monitoring software.

Are you saying that with the new /proc/stat hack the native linux client will now process bigadvs? I wasn't able to get that working, but it seems they were having server issues at the same time.
