my amd a8 with radon 6550d on chip has been running for just about 40 hours now...showing some good results and I have to say that I am impressed with the devs that have come up with the other programs to test hardware....since there is so little documentation available yet for this chip, I am getting good stats from those other programs like cpu-z etc.

So, I installed the 64 bit linux client on my Opensuse 64-bit server. Not sure if I'm doing this right. When I run it from console, I get this:

Code:
server@ibm-server:~/Folding@Home> ./fah6 

Note: Please read the license agreement (fah6 -license). Further 
use of this software requires that you have read and accepted this agreement.


The file FAHlog.txt has been locked by the operating system and cannot be
 opened for writing (possibly because it is open in another application).
Before you next run F@H, please ensure FAHlog.txt is not open anywhere,
 or simply delete it. For now, FAHlog2.txt will be used.

Am I doing this right? When I try to log in, it just takes me through the configuration again which I don't think is right. I've configured the FAH several times and it's like it never saves the config. It doesn't really matter what I input into it.

EDIT: NEVERMIND. I'M A DUMMY. I HAD TO RUN IT AS ROOT. It's working.

Y'all got yourselves a dual quad-core Xeon IBM enterprise server on your side now. 8-cores crunching numbers and this server is idle most of the time.

Now I just gotta figure out how to start the F@H program on boot...

I fired this up today. I won't need a space heater in this room for the winter (first snow today too).

Would the reason nothing much is happening for me be due to running on integrated graphics?

I don't think integrated graphics uses OpenCL, so you can't fold on it.

You can fold on your CPU though and it really is unobtrusive (Windows priority scheduler does a good job).

FAH v7, if that's what you're asking

Be sure to put the client-type beta option in your GPU slot to get many points (~200K vs. ~30K)

Well, I thought I'd participate! So I downloaded and installed the 64-bit Debian/Ubuntu version. That's where the fun ends! Running FAHControl immediately yields this error message:

Quote:
Failed to launch client with command:
FAHClient --lifeline 26871 --command-port=36330
[Errno 2] No such file or directory
(The 'lifeline' number changes each time.)

Selecting 'View' from FAHControl yields this error message:

Quote:
Failed to launch viewer with command:

FAHViewer --width=800 --height=600 --mode=4 --cycle-snapshots=true
[Errno 2] No such file or directory
I have no idea WHAT file or directory doesn't exist. The files for FAHControl are installed where I'd expect them to be, i.e., /usr/bin, /usr/share, etc. Its permissions look correct. I can RUN it, but that's as far as I'm getting.

Anyone?

Not really a "whine" but they certainly "whoosh". I've got a 660Ti and a 470GTX in this box atm so the fan noise whilst folding is definitely noticeable.

I just re registered for the forum but i was previously Lcanajoharie...number 8 on the folding team's ranking. Come on guys, there has to be hundreds of you with nice muscle PC's that could really help with the cause tremendously. I've got a quad core dell that bangs away at this stuff all day every day and never had a problem or felt any lag from the program running in the background. This is Stanford....they do big things. Let's help!

I have a few questions first, so does it use the processor or does it use the graphics card for this? Another question, how does this help biological questions? I visited the website, amd they say that they send your computer problems, I'm all for this, but how many problems do they have? Another question that may be hard to explain os what is the thing that is really going on during the process? From point a (Stanford) to point b (computer) point c (Stanford)?

It uses the processor unless you have certain high end (many of the nvidia models) graphics cards. The program does set its own priority very low and has never caused my computer to lag when I've asked it to work while folding. From what I've been able to gather, Stanford has advanced equations that need to be processed over and over again with a new variable introduced each time.... for millions of times. They send your computer a package of math problems, your computer chomps away at it and sends it back to Stanford when you are done. Your computer needs to be connected only when you send or receive a package. You can monitor all of this happening real time through the program's interface or see it all after the fact in a log the program keeps. Wish I had a more scientific understanding of what's happening so I could explain better. what I do know is that it's a good, noble thing to do if you have the resources.

Thanks for the reply. It does sound like a good thing, and I'll do this, but still, I would like a in depth explanation of what is actually going on. Hopefully Stanford can explain in depth.

So will this work with Windows 8?

I am back to folding after being gone for about a year. woohoo!!

Current system running: Win8 pro with an AMD A8-3870K, water cooled.

I also have the on-chip AMD 6XXX series and an ATI Radeon 7770 Vapor-X in the system, and they are being recognized by the software. Currently I am not utilizing the GPUs, have to spend some more time with the settings first.

Running well and folding away!!

Either or both. GPUs that support CUDA (Nvidia) or OpenCL (AMD) will complete the work units magnitudes faster than even high-end CPUs, so using those is preferable when possible.

Quote:
how does this help biological questions?
The research is on proteins, which assemble themselves by "folding" their chains in order to do their work of breaking down food, regulating mood, combating disease etc. If this folding malfunctions there can be serious effects on health, so the aim of the research is to better understand the processes involved. To properly do so requires modeling the huge number of possible folding permutations that can occur, which is done by mathematical modeling. This is where folding@home comes in....

how many problems do they have?
A lot! Certainly many millions.

Perhaps these links will answer some of your questions better than My own limited understanding will allow:

I got into this many years ago and it just fell by the wayside when I got new computers. Maybe I should join in again.


I'm fascinated by molecular modeling, and this is another outlet

So it works well with Windows 8? That's good, that's what I have now. I'll get this. So, how do I join the Phandroid team to help us reach higher ranks?

Amd that it uses a lot of power! Possibly like $3-4 a day. I'll only fold when I am using the computers

I used to fold on my PS3 but got away from it because my son was always on it. Does PS3 still do folding@home?

I'm sorry but no, the PS3 was retired November 6, 2012. More information:

Sounds like quite a lot, but it's for a good cause I'd prefer not to fold whilst I'm on cos the added heat makes my GPU really heat up and the noise!

If Sony ever takes it up again I'll do it from the PS3 but other than that I don't believe my PC is powerful enough to do it for extended periods of time.

Who knows. Maybe they might start it up with the PlyStation 4. That would be a great thing, for a great cause.

I don't really get heat at all from anything on my computer, but if it's at a full load, using both the processor and graphics card, things will stutter. So, I mainly turn my graphics card off while playing games and turn my processor to only use 3 cores for folding, and 2 for gaming. Love the fact that I got a 6 core processor instead of a 2 core or something.

I'm pretty sure I've done at least one work unit. I didn't get no certificate :-$

Not long. A few hours. Though I have a pretty powerful computer, and am able to achieve about 4,000 points for a work unit that may take a few hours.

awesome gentlemen! I was hoping I would spark a little bit of folding up by posting my experience with it. It's absolutely a power consumer. My little windows 7 CPU meter is pinned at 100 percent when I'm folding. 3 to 4 bucks a day for me is just fine considering the cause... however, I think that estimate may be a little high because my power bill is never more then 60 bucks a month and I've been folding consistently for a couple months now.

Well assuming for me, assuming that I am using my FULL 650 Wattage, it will be about $3-4 a day. Most likely the computer is not using that much at all, which is why I started another thread here in the forums.

Basically if I was using 650 Wattage, I would divide that by 1000 kilowatts, which is what the electric company measures your usage.

650 / 1000 = 0.65.
This is how much Kilowattage the computer would use in a given hour. It's a lot, considering it's the computer alone.

You then take this number and multiply it by how much the electric company charges per kilowatt hour. In my case, it's the highest in the country, Chicage! 15.8 cents per kilowatt.

0.65 * .158 = 10.27! That's how much it cost to run the computer for 1 hour! Multiply this times 24 for a day

$2.46. And this is assuming that is using the full 650 wattage. But I don't think it will cost that much, because most computers will use about 400 or so. I don't know how much mine is using, but I would like to know.

I have been leaving my computer on for some days now, and getting up the ranks. Already achieved 80,000 points and about 25 WU.

I'm now number 13 on the Phandroid team with 50 WU completed. I see since we joined, we moved up 2 ranks placing us at 622 now. Maybe someday we can place in the top 100!

Really? Sandy is the 2nd generation processor if I'm correct. I been running my Processor and Graphics Cards at 100% for about 2 weeks straight now, and there is no sign of heat from my computer, It handles everything very well!
Using a AMD FX 6 Core 6300 "Vishera" Clocked at 3.5GHz Processor
Graphics Card is a GTX 650 Ti OC 2 GB

Anyone know of a way to set how much load is put on everything? I think you can do it for the course, but what about the graphics card?

There's no direct equivalent of the 'Percent CPU Usage' setting, but there's a Windows environment variable that can be used to introduce a "wait time" to the GPU core. See here; the variable is FAH_GPU_IDLE.
