    You can install BOINC in Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 using the Synaptic Package Manager. Select the 3 packages - boinc, boinc-manager, and boinc-client and it should install OK.

    Not sure if it installs the latest version as mine is running an older one, but works fine on my Ubuntu server.

    I think that it is a round up of our current status, not what we actually earned. In some project we have more gold then silver. Anyway a good representation of our efforts. Thx KieX.

    Socket A? Nice. Won't put out high numbers, but every little bit helps. :) Oily's method will work fine, but there is a diskless Ubuntu solution.
    I believe this is what you want.

    I'm not Brandon, but here are the numbers you want: http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=user&proj=bwcg&name=670861
    His 7-day average is 2,397 but yesterday and the day before he had a bit over 4000.

    Brandon, glad it's still going for you! You should be averaging about 4k PPD now. :)

    I gave you two only? I swore I had all four, or maybe I'm thinking of the clipsfor my mega.

    The mega keeps me X2 at 19c load, PASSIVE! God I love that thing!

    Wow, that is incredible! You could probably overclock it quite a bit, with those temps. :D

    I'm going to put the mega on my X6 rig and the Xiggg on the X2, I'll benefit both ways from that. Just don't have time, hopefully I can do it today. :)

    A little side-sticker: how do you get the Folding Member besides the WCG Cruncher sticker?

    Enter your F@h username in Miscellaneous Options in the User Control Panel. You may need a certain number of credits, though.

    I believe you need a minimum of 100k, the same as in WCG. If I'm not mistaken that is.

    By the way ..... how much is the WCG/BOINC influenced by the Folding@Home client? Performance wise......

    Are you sure you put your username in your user CP identical to how it is in your clients?

    As far as performance it slows down WCG a bit, noticeable but not huge

    Make sure you don't use the GUI client, it eats up resources. The command line client is much more efficient.

    Username is exactly the same as on the folding@home website - case sensitive it is....
