FAHCoreWrapper v7.1.52 for Ubuntu 10.10 64bit (tar.bz2 package) doesn't work on Debian Unstable anymore. It fails after starting the FahCore with: FahCore returned: FAILED_2 (1 = 0x1)

Using the FAHCoreWrapper from v7.1.52 Ubuntu 10.10 64bit deb package also works correctly.

Why are the files in .tar.bz2 release not the same as in the package?

Folks need a clear warning about that, and once it's posted to the main page with the default configuration of GPU=True we'll be getting lots of complaints. You can blame the FAHCore or the driver for problems with GPUs, but it's V7 that's configuring the GPU by default, and that's the real problem for a public release that enables cores and drivers that aren't ready for novices.

The warning needs to be on the download page.

Exactly. Putting it on the Download page is an excellent idea, but of course we don't want to scare people away from V7 itself. Another options is show the message on V7's configuration screen. When V7 first starts up and doesn't see an existing configuration, it asks for a slot configuration and has SMP+GPU as the default option if the hardware supports it. This is fine for science, but perhaps the GPU slot should be optional UNTIL the cores handle their processing a bit better and the problem goes away. Of course this would require J. Coffland to make some coding tweaks, and I know he's very busy to get this out there. From my perspective, I'm not entirely certain how common lag issues actually are. All I know is that on both my laptop's 240m and my desktop's 560TI, GPU folding makes the most system impact, but on both machines the issues are fairly tolerable. The v6 Nvidia GPU client caused some display issues on my parent's machines, which may have been heat related in retrospect. Thus in my mind installing SMP/uniprocessor by default is fine, but exactly like you so eloquently said I'm also not sure about the widespread release of the GPU folding if my experiences are in fact the norm.

I do like the new home page, though I agree with elrado1 that the periods on Ready. Set. Fold. are unnecessary. I know that passkeys are mentioned in the v7 installation guide, but I feel like there should be some mention of it in the Earn points, join a team window; if you're going to be competitive, you usually need a passkey.

I'll probably download it on April 1st providing no major problems arise.

Some of the newer GPU Wu's do have the potential to over tax and possibly damage a highly OCed and inadequately cooled GPU and they will also make your cpu sluggish if a person is unaware of how they run and the problems that might arise there could be some resulting damage. If I was a new folder and installed v7 F@H on my gaming rig which has a ASUS Matrix GTX 580 on it and when it is gaming I run it at an OC of 1000+, if I try to fold at that with the fans set to auto it will hit close to the 100C mark. That is something that a person really should be warned about and be aware of.

Yep, Always be around watching GPU-Z and Speedfan while doing the first couple WUs.

Thanks for your report, csimon. Nobody knows what causes this problem (yet). I'm going to move your question to a topic we already have going on the issue, but I'll leave this quote here so it's still reported against V7.1.52. See viewtopic.php?f=67&t=20566

For information on how your program can cause an assertion
failure, see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts

(Press Retry to debug the application - JIT must be enabled)"

It only happens if I install V7 for both gpu&smp ...
My workaround has been to use V7 for gpu & V6 for smp.
I tried today to run both together and it failed again with the same message.

So, what info do I need to provide and, how do I fix this?

Personally I feel that the default setting should be Uniprocessor when initially installing the system. I always set it up as Uni first when trying it on new machines. Get some monitoring tools up before dedicating the machine to F@H.

New donors are not likely to want to setup FAH 2 or 3 times like you do.

But I agree that we could do better guiding new donors to the appropriate setup options the first time through.

And the site is live! Wow major changes everywhere! Thanks J. Coffland, I know you're making a lot of the changes!
On the Press FAQ page (http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-Press) all apostrophes are rendered as strange triangle symbols. Please fix.
V7's installation guide still has Beta Client Warnings despite being linked to from the main page, which seems contradictory to me. Is it still necessary? Maybe for the GPU slot...

Also, http://folding.typepad.com/news/2012/03 ... sease.html :D

You seem to have some misconceptions about what a public release means. Wasn't private beta vs. public beta explained a while ago? What does the title of this thread say? ;)

Let me say "Great job!". The v7 client is something you can all be proud of and the site is looking much more 21st century.

New 7.1.52 GPU running hotter than 7.1.50 @ 86-88c . And that's at 100% fan speed!
I eliminated the GPU slot, again.
