Yep, that's weird. I assumed it was like the others, so I tried to compile it, but kept getting this:
bash: ./configure: Permission denied

So for fun I saw fahmon.desktop was already in there, so I right clicked & clicked Allow executing file as program and it runs. Hmmm.... :D

That will just run the version you already have installed. You need to change the permissions of configure and then start the recompile process.

Edit: After some testing today, it does work, but it needs some rejigging to get the benchmark dialog to show the same data.

DOH! changed the wrong files permissions. Okay it's running & showing the bonus points now. Just had a little fun there for awhile because Ubuntu had updated my libtool to 2.2.6b-2 so had to autoconf the configure.ac file to get it to compile. ;)

Do the bonus point calculations look anything like what they should do?

Pretty close. while I had FahMon open I opened HFM.NET & checked. FahMon shows 2083 for a p6701 and HFM.Net shows 2290. Have to wait a bit to see if it catches up later or not.

Might be due to the differences between the way we calculate the ETA based on predicted frame time (try some of the other PPD calculation options in FahMon).

Well, it seems to be a bit off no matter which PPD calculation option setting I try. Got a new one p6055, HFM says 1398, FahMon has been keeping steady at 999. Of course it's only at 8% now, but will keep changing the setting each 25% for a longer time period.

I figured out why it was giving values that were so different to HFM. I was incompetent and used the preferred instead of the final deadline. This has now been fixed in r538 and now gives almost the same values as HFM. There is a difference in the way the ETA is calculated which results in slightly different PPDs.

Got a p6055. The latest FahMon r538 Uncle did gives the points+bonus as 1394. HFM gives 1372. The bonus calculator says 1387.66. Right now I have FanMon set to calculate PPD based on all frames, will see if changing that changes the bonus calculation much.

Any chance to get a compiled version for other OS of this :?: ... the 2.3.99.1 is getting quite old (no bonus, lots of unknown cores, ...) :(

Yeah. I need to add all the new cores too. I'm going to be away until the end of next week so can't really provide a Windows compile before then.
