OK! I now have the MAD Cruncher up and running Boinc, I am also writing this on it. I had a bit of a glitch with the P4 this morning.
I downloaded the updates, around 3:30 am the thunderstorm woke me up, then rebooted to a screen of gooble-de-kook saying it couldn't find the 'BOOT' on any of the partitions. I futzed around for a few minutes, then decided to re-install fresh (since I have been messing with it a bit before I could get online).
So, install was going good, I figured I'd wake up and have to reboot, done. However, said thunderstorm knocked out power sometime after I went back to bed. It was restored around 10am.
So, finally got it re installed and set up The Boinc manager, again! Then it was on to the Mad Cruncher.
Only problem, so far, is the DVI connection will die. Monitor will say, input not supported, and give me a blank screen. In fact it just did that and I switched over to a VGA cable.
Upshot is this, I now have 3 computers and 4 cores Crunching right here in my room! I also have another computer, my sister's, with two threads that I am in the process of trying to get her to run all the time. She leaves the computer on, nearly 24/7, but will log off. Thus closing the Boinc Manager. I'm waiting for her call back, then I will be crunching at full speed!
Although, 4 cores, all running at 2GHz, or better, 3 cores on Linux...Should pump up my Daily points quite nicely, all by themselves. Especially since I appear to have all the kinks out!
