    Hey guy's! Long time and just waiting for the weather to cool before I can crank the rigs back up.:rockout: Why is everyone taking about Linux all of a sudden?

    @ [Ion]: Lovin' the 4P setup you got. If it was the one on [H], you got one hell of a deal. Does it have the [H] Next Generation bios?

    By running Ubuntu on our crunchers instead of Windows, we've reportedly seen PPD gains of ~10%. My second machine, which is mostly a dedicated cruncher, is running Lubuntu, which is supposed to be a lighter, faster variant of Ubuntu. Also, with Linux, it's easy to build diskless crunchers, either by loading the Ubuntu install on a USB stick and simply using the 'try ubuntu' option, or by installing it on a USB stick the same way you would a hard drive.

    More than that, even ;)
    My 2600k @ 4.4 has a RAC of just over 9000 (not kidding) according to BOINC. The 2700k @ 4.4 has a RAC of ~6k. If it wasn't for the FAH GPU client, I'd switch the 2700k, 3770k, and 3930k over to Linux right away ;)

    I think it is still spooling, but my phenom has actually lost ppd thus far on Ubuntu

    Well I took hats advice and I set my I7-920 to 3.4ghz 1.15V for now and temps shot back up to around 78-79 but no lockups or BSOD. It did put me alittle over the 2K mark but that still is not good for what this CPU should do.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Hmm that don't sound right man. When I switched my 920 over to Linux it spooled immediately, like with in a day or 2 max. I did notice on my Phenom rigs when I was running Linux the difference between Windows and Linux wasn't as great as it Is with the Intel rig and what people are reporting with Fx rigs. I am seriuos thinking of trying Linux on my Fx rig and see for myself if there is a huge difference. I just need to get another 2.5 sata drive and pop it into my hotswap bay.

    i have the 2630QM onboard @1.4ghz with 8 threads. Until i can get a cooling pad i have to run on power saving settings and this gets me no more than 60C while crunching @ 50% load

    Been writing this thing in a text editor today, but it seems it will take a while to finish properly along with making it in-depth enough and comprehensible for a reader any level of Linux knowledge. Gonna post as soon as I finish. And maybe form a printable PDF shortly after.

    This will be awesome! Thanks in advance, from a newbee to most things *nix! (I have a system on Mint and an Ubuntu machine but, they have been in storage for over a year, and I was just getting started with them).

    P.S. I still have about a zillion bookmarks pointing to *niz help sites and code stuff. Just sitting there until I get my stuff back up!

    I wouldn't recommend the USB stick method of running Linux to anyone. Its extremely unreliable. Every Linux based USB cruncher I have assembled has had the Linux software fail in some way shape or form. Really better served in the long run picking up a cheap HDD.

    Ok so I have been posting some things in the other post here, 'Setting up for CEP2'.

    Rather than clutter up two threads with the same stuff, here's a link. My posts are #6 and #7.

    I am hoping that someone here will know what is what. Please, take a quick look. Thanks.

    I'm waiting on some fittings for my w/c'd rig to come in from Performance PC's and they have decided to use the looong way to get here :banghead:

    They left Florida on Tuesday headed for CT and USPS Priority says my package is now in Puerto Rico:eek:!!!! :wtf:-:mad: I was hoping to spend part of the weekend cleaning up the last part of my loop that was bothering me but I guess that won't be happening now :banghead:


    @Arjai- If I had any advice for you I would share but I haven't got a clue on ramdrives or super cache type stuff :(

    Sounds like they flat out shipped them to the wrong address. There's no way USPS would allow that. :wtf:

    I've seen packages go from the east coast to the west coast, back to the east coast, and finally back to the west coast to be delivered. It may have taken a wrong turn, but it should get to you eventually.

    I've had another one take a figure 8 route and take an extra 1,000 miles or so to get here- posted a pic of the route a while ago. On the other hand, I've had packages sent from Alaska, Washington, and California arrive here within 36-48hrs :shadedshu

    ** EDIT**

    Found it.... Here's the route USPS used the last time they took my package for a "tour"

    There may be a reason behind that routing that we just will never know. :laugh:
