[Windows 7] 2500k & X6 Bigadv Folding w/ Native Linux Client - Page 31

Yes, you should have used "big" in the config.

Using the CPU to Fold will take up as many of your CPU cycles as aren't being used elsewhere, your GPU will normally need some CPU cycles to work (don't ask, I don't know how or why it does it...it just does) so your GPU's TPF will increase when you start a CPU client; much the same as if [like me] you only normally Fold on the CPU, if you start the GPU client up, the CPU's TPF will go up....
Thanks, I'll try to change to "big" tomorrow to see if I download a bigadv WU next time . In my case, when I'm only folding with GPU, I takes about 25% of my CPU.

So I did everything as you said, but it made my PC extremely slow and unresponsive while running Linux in VirtualBox. So I have 2 questions:

1. How can I make my PC function normally while folding in Linux?

2. Do I need to enter the terminal stuff every single time I fold?

Guys, I installed fedora64 in my VMWare, but in the 3rd step:
Quote:
3. Now that you have your distro installed create a new folder @ the root.
Quote:
mkdir /fah
I'm getting an error message:
Quote:
mkdir: cannot create directory `/fah': Permission denied
What did I do wrong? I tried "sudo mkdir /fah" but that didn't get me anywhere either. I'm a Linux newb, so please help me!

1) I think you've already asked this (and possibly have a resolution, or at least a workaround) in another thread.

2) Define "the terminal stuff" you refer to.. All that you should need to do is fire up your computer and maybe log in...then the rest should automagically start itself and carry on. Make sure that you don't have "-config" or "-configonly" in the script, otherwise you would need to repeatedly enter the relevant details from that - and might find that you lose any WUs that aren't completed before you close....and without that in there, it will just do everything it needs. (It might well bring up a CLI prompt anyway, but you can ignore this if it is set up correctly)

I don't think you need the leading slash, try this instead:
Code:
sudo mkdir fah
Let us know how you get on. It can't create a directory/folder with certain characters (just like Windoze can't) and IIRC, the slash "/" character is one of them.

It's still not working. I think it's because Fedora isn't actually installed, but is just running off the live CD. The thing is, no matter what I try, I never get the option to actually install Fedora. It goes right to the Live CD and that's it... I don't know what to do... I'm gonna try to keep messing around until I actually figure out how to install it.

EDIT I've just learned that you have to go to the desktop and then choose "Install to Hard Drive". I'll keep poking at it until I get it.

EDIT 2 Yay! Fedora is installing! So far so good guys!

FINAL EDIT I got it working guys. Thanks a lot for the help Nude_Lewd_Man!

Okay, so I made it to the last step, and it isn't doing anything... no folding. Resource manager says my CPU is at 0% for all 4 cores. What gives? I got no error messages while doing this.
Code:
[02:07:17] - Expanded 24874598 -> 30796292 (decompressed 123.8 percent)
[02:07:17] Called DecompressByteArray: compressed_data_size=24874598 data_size=30796292, decompressed_data_size=30796292 diff=0
[02:07:17] - Digital signature verified
[02:07:17] 
[02:07:17] Project: 6900 (Run 1, Clone 22, Gen 66)

[02:07:23] Mapping NT from 4 to 4 
[02:07:26] Completed 0 out of 250000 steps  (0%)
It's been sitting like this for a good 20 minutes...

EDIT: Weird.. so I let it run overnight, and now it's at 19%... I guess it is working then.

post #307 of 348
Hi guys, please help out a linux noob here. This is the first time using linux, and this terminal command windows is a royal pain in the ass!

After almost an hour, I'm at the point where I type in:

curl -O http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandeg...inux64-SMP.exe

But all I get is curl: (6) could not resolve host: stanford.edu Connection refused

I did set the NIC as bridged. I see this question was brought up on page 16, but it was never answered. Please help!

BTW, I tried typing in sudo in front of the curl command, and doesn't work either

I get "ping: unknown host google.com"

Hope I did the installation correctly and didn't miss something. In my VMware, all I have is a dos style terminal window. Believe I chose "minimal" during the Fedora64 installation, which I assume is the non-GUI version?

Thanks again.

post #310 of 348
Just looked up under "network and sharing center", and noticed the two VMnic are under a "unidentified network", and the access type is "no network access".

I wonder if this is the reason I'm getting no internet access within Fedora. I searched around the VMware forums and can't find a solution.

Anyone else having this problem?

Edit: Forgot to add, the little network icon in the VMware's system tray is showing connectivity.

Edit 2: second update, nothing wrong with Windows 7 host network. I installed a second Fedora within VMware, this time with GNOME gui, and firefox is working perfectly.

So I guess my VMware is fine in terms of internet access, but something about the first terminal window version is messed up.
