PS - I think Gromacs 4.6 comes in a Linux version, though whether Folding will offer that is not clear. But maybe that is what they are holding out for?
(I suppose it is out of place in a discussion of AMD drivers, since Gromacs-GPU appears to be CUDA only, so I will leave it at that.)
Please have a look here
, I am
GPU folding on all of my Linux systems, using Wine and the GPU3 v6.41 console client:
OK, how about this
for being different - eight (8) Linux/Wine/GPU3 folding systems?
I had all these "obsolete" computers and GPUs lying around here, and I thought - "How About Linux"? At first, they were smp:2 folding only, but after I found out how really easy it is
to do GPU folding (thanks, Hyperlife!) with Linux/Wine/GPU3 and the re-released v6.41 console client (thanks, PG/Stanford!), well, as they say, the little snowball started rolling down the steep, snow-covered mountain ...
GPU folding is very easy to set up on Linux with Wine, I am going to start a topic with the 'tips and tricks' I have learned on 9 Linux/Wine/GPU3 installations, to make it go easily and quickly. I started with Hyperlife's Headless Linux Guide
, and I've automated a lot of it with scripts so that very little typing has to be done. It has become (for me) just as easy to get GPUs folding under Linux , as it is under Windows.
