folding at home won't start

Postby crazzy88ss » Sat Jun 30, 2012 5:45 am

Hello,

I've installed folding@home on my core i7 imac. I go into system preferences and click on "Start folding@home." Nothing happens. The "Folding@home disabled" still remains the same.

The top of the system pref pane says "folding@home (32-bit)."

I've restarted the computer.

Any ideas?

To start off, what version of OS X are you using?

Beyond that, to get any work with the V6 folding client you will need to add a parameter. Under the Advanced tab of the control panel, add -advmethods to the Extra parameters line. Then try starting the folding client.

If that does not work, look in the Library folder of the account you are using to fold. Inside that folder should be one called Folding@home. If there is a file called FAHlog.txt, could you post the contents here. Use the Code tags from the full editor to enclose the contents of the log you post to give a scrollable box containing it.

Running 10.6.8.

I added -advmethods and it didn't work.


I did folding@home on my eMac YEARS ago and don't remember doing anything "fancy" to get it to run. Has changed things since then?

The end of the log shows v6.24, and you need to run v6.29.

Also, i think I made this mistake once before... does -advmethods not show up in the log when added to the Mac client? Shouldn't there be a line that shows arguments with -advmethods?

The version of Folding you have is too old for 10.6.8 as it is for 10.4 only, you need to go to a newer version. From the Client Download link at the top of the forum page, get the one listed as Mac OS X 10.5+ Intel 32/64-bit SMP Installer. You should be able to install over your existing installation with folding paused. If that does not work, there is an uninstaller.

I think it depends on the verbosity level, but -advmethods is not showing in my current log file. I switched back to V6 on my MacBook because I was only getting large projects taking 4-5 days using V7.

Edit: I just looked back over your log again crazzy88ss. It initially showed that 6.29 was being used, then it showed version 6.24 for all of the rest. I would recommend running the uninstaller, a link is in the next topic, and then do a reinstall. That should make certain that only the current version's files are left on your iMac.

P.S. The folding is not that complicated, just that there is a limited source currently for OS X folding with the V6 client. There is a V7 beta, it has some minor issues with 10.6.8, and major issues with other versions of OS X. So it has not yet become a recommended client for OS X folders.

The end of the log shows 6.24, the start of the log shows 6.29. That could indicate a messed up install

I would recommend running the uninstaller, a link is in the next topic, and then do a reinstall. That should make certain that only the current version's files are left on your iMac.


Bingo, good catch. Thanks!

Is there any way to throttle folding@home? I tried searching on forums, but I didn't see anything good in the results. These aluminum iMacs can get fairly hot -_-

Correct, I initially installed the wrong version, which I figured out, but didn't uninstall correctly until I ran the uninstaller. We're all good now.

I have not used any utilities to throttle folding, so can not recommend any. Perhaps others will have some to mention. By default the client will use all cores and threads available on your system, so in the case of your iMac that is 4 cores with 8 threads or -smp 8. You can reduce that by adding -smp 6 or -smp 4 to the extra parameters line. That should reduce the CPU usage of folding and reduce the heat output by some amount. Beyond that, from my own experience with my i7 iMac, do keep the air intakes at the bottom and the exhaust slot clear.

ok I'll give that a try.

Regarding parameters, do I separate them with spaces? commas? something else?

Thanks for your help.

Just spaces will do.

And you need to stop and restart folding for any config changes in the pref pane to take effect.
Best to stop, make changes, then immediately start.
The fah6 pref pane only tries to save the config after a stop, and before a start. It will otherwise forget any changes you attempt.
You also must run the pref pane logged in as the same user that ran the installer package, otherwise it won't have permission to change the client.cfg.

You would probably be better off just using fah V7.
Main thing to be aware of there, is to use the control key instead of command key to copy/cut/paste in FAHControl.

one last question: I also installed it on my Core 2 Duo MacBook. I put "-smp 1" hoping it'll do 1 thread, but it seems to be maxing out both cores. Does it not work the same way on that processor?

There you run into one limitation of the V6 folding client. It is SMP only and currently only can use the A3 folding core. The minimum setting is therefore -smp 2.

The V7 beta can also use the A4 folding core. That core can be run as either an uniprocessor or as SMP. I have tried it with the client set to uniprocessor in the past, one issue that I ran into was that some of the time it tried to download PPC Mac work from the one server left for that. That failed because there is no core 78 available for Intel and OS X. They may have adjusted the server settings since then so that will not happen, but I have not tested uniprocessor mode again.
