Yes it's possible but I'm no expert so I don't know how cause I've not tested it yet.
Been awhile from I used Ubuntu for my OS...but I do remember that the client would take a long time between finishing the work unit and uploading the result, especially with -bigadv.
Just leave it a while and see if it uploads.There was something called Languoste (or something like that) that would download a new WU while the other one uploaded so saving time between WU's.
EDIT: See post #5 here
Thanks I'll try that but HFM reports the client as Hung but I'll leave it there for a few hours to see if it will upload.
I cant remember if HFM reported my clients as hung or not, during the period that they seemed to be doing nothing.
Maybe some other members can help you out here.....I may just give Ubuntu a try again on a few of my rigs, this has awakened my interest in Linux again.
All is well now, but it took 3 hours from it finished untill it uploaded. Got a 2686 on it now.
Yeah that seems about right, mine would do the same when they finished a WU.
I would suggest installing the Langouste decoupler to help with the uploading and so saving time inbetween WU's.
Can I install it while the client is running?
I'm also trying to install Teamviewer without any luck so any help there too would be most welcome.
See Oily _17 post #14277, click on the link. Follow that guide For Ubuntu set up. They also have a great Sr-2 thread there. I'll help as much as I can too.
The long wait for the upload is a problem with the ext4 file system, use the ext3 if you can. I use ext3 and it takes 40 seconds from when the w/u finishes to sending the w/u. Languoste will help with that too, as it allows you to start a new w/u while it sends the other, but it helps more with a slow internet connection. I don't use it.
Can I change the filsystem on an existing install or do I need to reinstall?
I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 now.
Reinstall unfortunately. In my above post, the 40 seconds is from the time the w/u finishes to the start of the w/u being sent. Follow the link in oily's post #14277. That's how I setup my Ubuntu install, except for languoste. Post #'s 2-4 there is what I used.
Not sure about Teamviewer, I use UltraVNC to log into my rigs if the need arises.
Ahh thats good to know, I intend to try out a couple of Ubuntu installs, must make sure and use the ext3 file system when formatting partitions.
I agree, with only a 40sec delay there is no need for the Languoste decoupler anyway.
It can be usefull if you have a slow internet connection. With a 20 down and 4 up connection, the bigadv's take 5 to 7 minutes and the bigbeta takes 15 to 25 minutes to upload depending on what's using the connection.
Well I've got a 50/50 line so upload speed should not be an issue I'll jus have to do th reinstall and choose ext3 filesystem then.
Another question, is there any programs for monitoring CPU temps and speed etc cause I kind of miss Eleet i Ubuntu.
I tried to get lm-sensors to work on 1 rig with no success, I'm a linux noob and only know what I can read. It 's not like windows where you d/l it, install it, and then open it.
Can someone help http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2311486#post2311486 I don't have the time today.
Posted on there but still need more info.
Parts just arrived for the SR2 folding rig...two Xeon 5620's installed. I will install Win 7 alongside Ubuntu just in case I can't figure it out lol. This thing is freakin huge!
Always love seeing pics of the SR-2.
Here's one I took a while back.
SR-2 together with the R3E, both dressed for watercooling
What case Rick?
What is the requirements to get/complete one of those 400K+ WUs? Do you need a SR-2?
This is what I'd use if I could ever find the cash to put a SR-2 system together. Currently this is my only solution.
Top Deck Tech Station Kits (HPTX)
Note that it is the HPTX version.
Requirement is 12 cores minimum, Linux 64bit OS (for now), and a lot patience similar to the -bigadv days using VMware
Linux 64bit OS shouldn't be any problem.
Then if I had an Intel Core i7-970 Gulftown in an ASRock X58 Extreme LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel motherboard then confirm that I can run one of those projects.
12 Cores minimum.......
