The ones in ::gentoo are licence- and multilib-masked. The latter is an error; the binaries are static so userspace doesn't matter at all, and I used them fine without multilib. I remember reporting that as a bug months ago... It should work fine on x86-32 too.


How do I run that on a x86-32 system?
Code:
disi foldingathome # file /var/tmp/portage/sci-biology/foldingathome-6.34-r2/work/fah6
/var/tmp/portage/sci-biology/foldingathome-6.34-r2/work/fah6: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, stripped


It is the correct version for my system, but there is no ebuild anymore :(

From that page it sounds like they dropped 32bit after 6.02. You're better off keeping that old version, it should continue to work at least until they make a new 32bit release. I think all the newer one added is the bigadv SMP2 WUs (which need 64bit and tons of cores to finish within the deadline).

I still have a older x86 machine and I had to download the 32 bit executables manually. The script finstall kept getting the newer version which is 64 bit. You can use the file command to find out if it is 32 or 64 bit tho.

Code:
root@smoker / # file /root/foldingathome/fah6
/root/foldingathome/fah6: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.0.0, stripped
root@smoker / #


On my main rig which is amd64:

Code:
root@fireball / # file /root/foldingathome/fah6
/root/foldingathome/fah6: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, stripped
root@fireball / #


Hope that helps.

:D :D

P. S. I left folding running while I went grocery shopping. I was gone for most of the day. It still can't download a unit. But, emerge -e world is almost done. :roll:

dalek: Any chance you've changed locations since last folding?
I can fold absolutely everywhere except at my dad's house, with the same computer and settings that work elsewhere, and I decided it had to do with his crappy router (which has, for example, no ipv6 support among other issues that I had to work around).

I ask because I got the same output you did.

I'm still in the same place. Been here most of my life actually. My parents bought it when I was a kid and I'm still here.

Funny thing is, my older x86 box is folding away. It got a unit first try and hasn't stopped since. It's been going at least a month or so. My amd64 box, nothing. Everything goes through the same router and modem too.

Weird huh?

:D :D

Sounds like it. It's quite annoying to have a bunch of spare computing power you can't use!
Here's to hoping you straighten it out.

So I was building a little 80 node computing cluster and tried out ubuntu server for the nodes. That was a big mistake. I'm talking random kernel panics, oddly high CPU usage, and an inability to do ACPI reboots. It's amazing what they do to such a stable OS.

I replaced with Gentoo and now it's running beautifully. Thought I'd test out the cluster and show gratitude with some folding. Posting here to bump for awareness; the GLUE team seems like it can be in pretty good shape, why not spare a few cycles, fellow users?

Perhaps a bit late to the party. Only 31 active folders left on the gentoo team. Where did everybody go?

Mine got to the point where it never had anything to do so I just stopped the service and never restarted it. It went for months doing nothing but trying to find work. :?

While crunching, my energy costs have been four times greater than normal. Due to the german energy costs, this was too much.

And imho the credit assignment is intransparent. In some projects you can earn more credits than in other projects (even if both are GPU projects or both are CPU projects). So if you want to get a high credit rank, you have to support projects which give you many credits, even if you think that other projects are more useful.
