Windows GPU client with X running

Postby kromberg » Wed Jul 21, 2010 4:00 pm

Can you run the Windows GPU client via wine with X running? I have setup a system or two with the headless guide and it has the machines running in level 3. Just wondering if that is possible. Also you install a second GPU in a system? The GPUs will not run in SLI mode since the MB does not support it.

Yes, just install and configure everything needed to run the Windows console GPU2 or GPU3 client as you would for a headless system. Running X, open a terminal window and run your wine F@H command line in the directory where the F@H GPU executable is installed.

Also you install a second GPU in a system? The GPUs will not run in SLI mode since the MB does not support it.

Yes, you can run a second client on a second GPU card. You do not need SLI (actually I think you cannot use SLI.) As you would on a 2 GPU headless system, install and configure a second GPU client in a separate directory. Open a second terminal window and run the command line in this directory.

My setup is described here: http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=14971. I have since upgraded to wine-1.2-rc3 and moved the DLLs/symlinks to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 directory. Moving the DLLs was the key to getting Core 15 with the GPU3 client (thanks to Hyperlife for the solution http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=14673&start=300#p152014)
