[tuto],openSuse leap 15.2, fah >= 7.6.21

FAH provides a V7 client installer for Debian / Mint / Ubuntu / RedHat / CentOS / Fedora. Installation on other distros may or may not be easy but if you can offer help to others, they would appreciate it.

A great news for openSuse users

there is now openSuse packages from community user "Curiosity"

with "one click install" you can install FAH

here

https://software.opensuse.org/package/fetch-fahviewer
https://software.opensuse.org/package/python-fahcontrol
https://software.opensuse.org/package/fetch-fahclient

No more problem about zip2 not installed.
No more necessity to create a systemd service for FAH.
No more compliancy problem with libopenssl openSuse package.



Perhaps you will need to launch FAH service in case fahcontrol gui is all grey
You can start and stop FAH

Code: Select all
        $ sudo systemctl stop fahclient.service
        $ sudo systemctl start fahclient.service


Complete fahcontrol settings with your "name ", team number (if you are a member of one) and your "passkey".

Perhaps you must ask system to start FAH at PC startup. For this use the tool "services manager" in yast. Choose "at system startup" for fahclient.

some problems may occurs:
- cpu too hot
- fah does not decrease its cpu power consumption when you launch an app.
- setting "folding power"to "light" or "medium" does not work

in this case see my solution

or the one of Bruce

I tested Bruce's solution.

The CPU of my PC gets 4 cores.
FAH settings : Power "full" when i am "working"

Result:
- my solution "cpulimit --exe FahCore_a8 --limit 50" : about 32 °C
- Bruce's solution "only one core for folding" : about 42 °C

My solution is complex.
Bruce's solution is easy.

One wonders what you might class a "cpu too hot" as both of the figures you quote achieved are barely luke warm - there might be a little thermal headroom for more folding? :)

@Neil-b

I forgot I want a silent PC thus I want to minimize fan noise. I can reach this with cpulimit.

That would explain the temperature choice :)
