herbak wrote:Not that I currently know of. Well, that is if you are talking exclusively of F@H. On the other hand, I do know of other folding-style projects that will run natively on Linux and will run on ATI and nVidia cards on Linux natively. One such is the Help Conquer Cancer (HCC) project running under BOINC/World Community Grid (WCG), with whom I have recently been in touch. Their project WUs for native ATI and nVidia GPU on Linux are currently undergoing 3rd party (i.e. WCG) approval so all being well should be released fairly soon. No final ETA as of yet, however.

I guess I've already said enough times what the current state of play is so won't repeat it again. If I tell you up-front that there is a train coming towards you, you can do one of two things with the information: either be pro-active and use the information to act appropriately or be reactive and wait until it hits you...

Sidicas wrote:So you can say native support for FAH on Linux with ATI hardware "exists" but it's not "ready", same as you say above. In fact, I'd bet you a dollar that both groups are waiting on the same problems in the frameworks to get fixed before they release their clients..
