Great! What driver version and toolkit version are you using?

Thanks very much, Hyperlife, for this fantastic guide. I used it, and was able to get both of my Debian Linux v6.0.6 systems 'GPU folding' right away. You can see them, as the #4 and #5 systems, here :)

I don't know if it might have made a difference, but before I started using this guide, I followed the Debian-specific method to install an NVidia driver, with these commands (as root):
Code: Select all
chmod +x nvidia-versions.sh
./nvidia-versions.sh
apt-get install module-assistant nvidia-kernel-common
m-a auto-install nvidia-kernel${VERSION}-source
apt-get install nvidia-glx${VERSION}
This gets the most recent NVidia driver (which is not the correct one), but it does set up (I believe) the environment for installing the correct version (the one in this guide, 256.35). I also used the Windows v6.41 GPU3 (required for Fermi and AMD 6xxx) "no-nonsense" console client, instead of v6.31 as shown in this guide.
EDIT: The ~friedrim links no longer work, for downloading the GPU or CPU FAH versions.

I also created the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Code: Select all
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 256.35  (buildmeister@builder97.nvidia.com)  Wed Jun 16 19:15:05 PDT 2010

The part that I did have to change, was your step 8, because my two Linux machines are not headless. So the X server has to be shut down for that part of the installation.

Here is how I had to run step 8:

EDIT:
The following instructions have been changed, due to:
  • a rare problem where a properly shutdown X server still appeared to be running, due to a flag falsely being set, and
  • the instructions now show how to properly set the gcc compiler version, in the case where the NVidia installer warns about having the wrong version of gcc installed.
  • Reboot the computer when the installation is complete.
  • The driver version number is shown as a variable, because this post is used as an example by other topics, which use a different driver version. I use v275.43 for my Linux/Wine/GPU3 systems.

Now, the following instructions will vary a bit according to which Linux you have installed, this is for Debian v6.0.6 that I am running here:
  • Reboot the computer, and select the "recovery mode" option from the GRUB screen
  • Login as root
  • Install the NVIDIA driver:
    Code: Select all
    cd /home/art/Downloads
    sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-nnn.nn.run
    Where 'nnn.nn' is the version number you are installing (eg 256.35, 275.43, etc.). Follow the prompts. Go ahead and install the OpenGL libraries too. Answer "Yes" when asked if you would like to run the nvidia-xconfig utility.
  • If you get a warning about having the wrong compiler version (see below), select "Yes" to abort installation, set the CC environment variable to the name of the compiler used to compile your kernel, and restart installation, by (for example) executing these commands:
    Code: Select all
    apt-get install gcc-4.3
    export CC=gcc-4.3
    and go back to the previous step (above) to complete the installation
  • When the installation is complete, reboot the computer using this command:
    Code: Select all
    shutdown -r now
    and allow the "normal" Linux kernel to boot up.
This is the compiler version mismatch warning message from the NVidia driver installer:
Code: Select all
   The compiler used to compile the kernel (gcc 4.3) does not exactly match the
   current compiler (gcc 4.4).  The Linux 2.6 kernel module loader rejects kern
   el modules built with a version of gcc that does not exactly match that of t
   he compiler used to build the running kernel.
   
   If you know what you are doing and want to ignore the gcc version check, sel
   ect "No" to continue installation.  Otherwise, select "Yes" to abort install
   ation, set the CC environment variable to the name of the compiler used to c
   ompile your kernel, and restart installation.  Abort now? (Answer: Yes)

any help ? it's been so long that I can't recall every thing I need to do.



well this is nice, I'm having the same problem again.
windows is fine and my cards are stable.
anyhelp?

Try that. Otherwise, the recent updated guides from Jesse and Art contain all the usual tricks, and links to further info on particular problems.

Sorry I can't check anything at the moment, my Ubuntu/Wine/GPU is down :(

Re: NVIDIA GPU3 Linux/Wine Headless Install Guide

Hi all,

Looking to do this as well for my current NAS server as the current GeForce 8800 GTS is not even being used at all given there is no X UI elements installed and only install what I need from the command line.

Questions on this procedure although seems from the posts of many of you, that there still requires some tweaking:

- Do we still require the installation of WINE to make this work? I have SMB running, but never installed WINE, and would prefer not to.
- Is this the lowest overhead install possible, or were some able to cut out portions, like the need for ZIP support. I think F@H are no longer zip extensions, correct?

Cheers all,
pedwards

WINE is required for the v6 GPU clients, which AFAIK are still supplied as zip files.
v7.3.6 will run natively on Linux, using either or both CPU and GPU. FAHControl can run remotely on another PC.
Various levels of support and expertise are available, depending on your flavour of Linux, on the v7 area of this forum.
Personally I have a dedicated Ubuntu folding rig and v7 is much easier to install and manage than v6 under WINE.

Great to know. So I'm running 7.3.6 on Ubuntu 11.10 with FAHControl monitoring on a separate PC. Not planning to upgrade to 12.04LTS partially because it ain't broke, so no need to upgrade as of yet.

Meanwhile you mentioned that the latest will use either GPU or CPU? Is there another forum I can check on that, or what elements in this post are still valid.

Thanks much.

See http://foldingforum.org/viewforum.php?f=88

v7 install is completely different from v6, information here is for v6 and is not applicable to v7.
What GPU do you have? I am reminded that at present v7 on Linux for nVidia will only work with Fermi/Kepler.

Oops, reread your earlier post and you did say 8800GTS. I'm fairly sure you will need to go v6/WINE to fold on that on Linux. In that case stay with this thread and enjoy jumping through all the hoops to set up WINE! Or find a suitable newer graphics card...

Sorry for getting your hopes up.

David

Greatly appreciate the link. Thanks.

Was posting the same time as you did. Ah, so I will need WINE to get this to work and downgrade to v6 with the F@H client? Yeah, not worth it then. Then won't be able to use the remote access afforded by v7.

So does the similar constraints apply to AMD cards with Linux? Just curious.

Cheers David.

There was an attempt to create a WINE wrapper for AMD-ATI cards for folding 2-3 years ago, it did not come up with a successful piece of software. For Core_17 on Linux, reports are that it did not work well on Linux with the existing OpenCL implementation in the drivers from AMD-ATI. If that improves, then folding on AMD cards may come to Linux too at some time in the future.

The lower end ATI cards were already deprecated (those below the 5xxx series) some time back which is sort of like deprecating NV's G80 series. That said, AMD's low-end hardware is very, very slow using Core_17 and many have chosen to either switch back to Core_16 or to upgrade their GPUs.

Joe and Bruce,

Thanks for clarifying. Very clear now.

Interesting point regarding the Core_16 vs. 17 speed... assuming that closely mirrors to v6 vs. v7 clients? So if there's an issue with the GPUs, do older architecture CPUs also run slower in v7 clients? Meaning although I'd lose the remote FAHControl feature, it would fold much faster on a v6? Or does that not matter.

Sorry for hijacking this thread, promise my last question here as it's not aligned with the topic.

Cheers.
