New SMP Clients. Version 6.29

Post by geokilla » Thu Jan 21, 2010 9:54 pm

New SMP clients has been released for Windows and Linux. Only Mac users are left out. Sorry Mac users.
We have just posted updates for all our SMP-capable clients except for the OS/X-Installer version. These updates do two things:
1. fix a small but important bug
2. enable the clients for the upcoming release of our first SMP2 cores (threads-based SMP)

The new client version is 6.29. Please update your clients at your earliest convenience if you are running SMP, particularly if you are running -bigadv work units.
We anticipate swapping over -bigadv work units to use only the new client in the coming weeks.

Client downloads are available at:

and windows SMP at:

So, how would I do this for a VM?

I have a FAH folder on the desktop with stuff in it, but the Linux64_FAH.vmdk is not expanded or anything.

I am an idiot with this stuff, so please throw me a bone.

Thanx!

After reading the thread it seems you can just do an upgrade also. I might try that and see how it goes after this unit is done and transmitted. Maybe upgrading wont hurt the current unit being folded, but I wont take the chance till it gets a new one ;)

Updating worked GREAT!

now the new package includes the un/pw so you dont have to type it in each time, but if you dont want to do that, upgrading is the way to go...

send ctrl+alt_del
enter your un and pw (fah/fah1234)

after that type this in

wget http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegrou ... -Linux.tgz
mkdir old
cp fah6 mpiexec old
tar xzf FAH6.29-Linux.tgz

then start your client like normal with either -smp 7 or -smp 8

I stole this from the same link above. It was written in the forum replies
