I thought it was doubtful too. But I verified this by changing clients in the midst of a work unit, then switched back before it was done. Makes no sense to me either. But is it possible that the 6.24 client is checking WU status much more often than the 6.02 client? And that would have to be a lot to make a temperature differential of a couple of degrees.

I don't believe we had a kernel update during this experiment. I'm reasonably sure I did these client switches without re-booting.

Here's some of the system specs:

Processor - 2x AMD Athlon(tm) 7750 Dual-Core Processor
Memory - 3729MB
Chipset - AMD 780G
Operating System - Ubuntu 9.04
Kernel - Linux 2.6.28-14-generic (x86_64)
Compiled - #47-Ubuntu SMP Sat Jul 25 01:19:55 UTC 2009
C Library - GNU C Library version 2.9 (stable
Desktop Environment - GNOME 2.26


I'll try my experiment again.

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 beta on an older laptop. Intel pentium M 1.73Ghz (32bit)

Will this build run on my machine? is there an alternative?

My Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit only accepts the 32-bit version of Ubuntu 9.15 to run on VMware, and not the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. Seems odd....

What's the command in Linux to update the FAH client to the latest (beta) version? Thanks!

You don't update. You download the new version and replace the old one.

Is it under the hardware of your profile (Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor E8500) ? Activate Intel VT-x in BIOS, load and install VMware Player 3.0, create an 64 Bit VM in Player and it will work.

I would like avoid to use Wine, emulating is not efficient.

I prefer to use my gpus with Collatz for the moment :)

There is currently no GPU client for Linux other than the user-supported version that works with WINE. There have been rumors that there will be such a client, but nobody has been able to get a reliable answer about if that's happening or when it might happen.

There are several different techniques that are all called emulation with widely varying degrees of efficiency. In the case of the FAH GPU client, almost all of the time spent processing the FAH WU is consumed by code that runs in the GPU, where no emulation is performed. Suppose that 99% of the time is spent in the GPU and 1% of the time the client is processing x86 code. Now suppose that 10% of that x86 code is Windows code which runs less efficiently than if it were Linux code and that it runs twice as slow.

The overall time would increase by 0.1%. I wouldn't worry about it - - but if you'd rather wait, that's certainly your choice.

I have given a try.

Can we have another client that works on newer distros such as Ubuntu 10.04 etc..?

In the meantime, you can use tear procedure to work around the issue : viewtopic.php?p=138466#p138466
