    Downloaded the executable, but cannot open or "run" it as we say in windoz land. I guess I have to use "synaptic"?

    Did you download it directly from the WCG site? There's probably an already compiled BOINC Manager in Synaptic, although I use 12.04 which has the newer Ubuntu Software Center. try searching for BOINC Manager in Synaptic and see if you come across it first.

    Use the Ubuntu Software Center or the Synaptic Package Manager (I prefer the USC, but your choice). Then just launch it from the Applications menu :toast:

    The BOINC service doesn't start automatically. You may have to
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client start

    If installed through the software center, it should.

    Edit: Not if just installed. On system start. But it has that nice graphical tool too. Just like windows.

    Why don't you finish it, not let the system get another one, and then start BOINC tomorrow? :confused:

    If i pause the BOINC work until tomorrow, do i lose points?

    And, are there any projects I want to stay away from in Boinc?

    OMG! :eek:
    It's so beautiful!!!! :toast::toast:
    I've never seen a SS of that many WUs going at once :p
    BOINC doesn't use bonuses, so you'll just lose out on ~18 hours of crunching time. All projects are OK, sometimes HPF2 will give errors, but usually only on Windows.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    If you install through the software center it will load automatically when you reboot. Trust me I have 3 rigs running Ubuntu and have had a rig running ubuntu for a couple years now. :toast:


    Hey Buck Nasty your running 12.04? Are you using Unity? And if so do you like it or would you like something more like this?

    :rolleyes:

    I get to see 8 WUs going all of the time--and my dad showed me a 16C system at work crunching a while back--but never more than that.

    OK, pausing WCG and finishing the F@H WU. Will start back up on WCG tomorrow @ 3pm with the 4P rig. The i7-870 is running Boinc as of 6pm tonight and will stay on WCG. F@H SMP only netted 21K in Windows 7, so WCG it is!

    Running Ubuntu 10.10. It folds faster.

    Only 21k :rolleyes:
    I'd take that, it's still a 58% boost on where I am ATM (I've gotten saddled with only the 5187pt WUs again). I'd say you should get a solid 5-5.5k from the i7-870 depending on how high it's clocked.

    Glad to have you back on the Team! :toast:

    You guy's know that I roll "old school". Here's a pic of me at the "command post".

    it's good to be back on Boinc. The rigs run cooler!:D i7-870 @ 4.1Ghz/1.4Vcore is hovering @ 60-65C on water.

    That's quite amazing! My (admittedly cheap) WC kits keeps my i7-860 @ 60-65C @ 3.4GHz :eek:

    Seeing your CPU clocked 700MHz above mine makes me want to OC more. What clocks/voltages are you using for that?

    Here you go, copy and paste in terminal. Enter after each line.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install cinnamon

    After installation has completed, logout. Your login screen’s session menu should now show the entries shown in the image below. Select Cinnamon and log in

    It's very preliminary at this point, but it's looking like the X4 965BE is pulling about 2.3k PPD. Kinda horrible IMO...that's barely more than what a 2.4GHz C2Q will do. We'll see what it's looking like after it gets to run for a bit longer. This X58 board can't get RMA'd fast enough.

    Give it a few days to ramp up some more. I am averaging 3k on my 960t @ 3.2 and 3.6k on my stock speed 970be.
