I do folding on Slackware systems. Don't use any other Linux distro. I've been successful using the 64bit versions from 13.0 and beyond. These have the 32-bit Multilib setups as created by Alien Bob, one of the Slackware developers, along with his 32bit Wine builds....and it's working as expected.
What I've noticed is that when I setup a system to use the GPU3 wrapper version, that the FAH process ends up consuming an ENTIRE core on the PC. That means that a quad core only had three cores left to do other work with. A dual core has one left for other work.
Can folks out there take a look at your 'top' numbers, and see if the 3.0 wrapper is causing the same level of idle time on the FAH core?
