|DETAILED LINUX INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS|
We are in the process of making an installer to make this process much easier. For now, here are detailed instructions to setup the SMP client.
1) Go to Terminal. Depending of your desktop engine (KDE, GNOME, ...) the Terminal application can be at different places, but you'll find it. GNOME has it at "Applications->Accessories->Terminal". Open Terminal.
2) In the Terminal window you should see a prompt that looks something like this:
[email protected] ~ $
3) To get the SMP FAH client going type in following commands:
mkdir -p ~/folding/FAH
curl -O http://www.stanford.edu/~kasson/fold..._SMP_Linux.tgz
tar xzf FAH_SMP_Linux.tgz
Note: If you don't have curl available on your machine, use wget instead:
4) Now you should have the SMP FAH client in place and you'll have to configure it. It can be done by running following command:
After setting the configuration there are couple of ways to start the SMP FAH client. One way is to start it is by typing in each time the following command
./fah5 -verbosity 9
5) OPTIONAL: To make it a little easier for yourself, one can making a script by running following commands:
echo "./fah5 -verbosity 9" > FaH
chmod +x FaH
Now you'll just have to run
and all those additional FAH client flags will get added by itself.
Note: All those listed commands MUST be typed/pasted from this little HOWTO to the terminal (window) of your machine.

if it works, it shouldn't brign up an error.
Then, you execute the program by typing ./fah5

Rippon's post is pretty much dead on right, but I'll go into more detail.
Ok so you downloaded the file and saved it in you home folder (ie. /home/dangeroushobo/FAH504-Linux.exe)
In a terminal type:
mv FAH504-Linux.exe ~/folding
sudo chmod +x FAH504-Linux.exe -OR- sudo chmod +x FAH <press TAB> Note: tab completes the line
./FAH <press TAB>
I think some of you were trying to do tab complete or something with the ./fah5, but didn't say to press tab. Also Unix/Linux is case sensitive. So ./FAH....
