It is quite possible that it is just you however I did write this using 6.06 which is still very much supported by ubuntu and is probably a good choice since there are plenty of things that are known to work on it.

I'm currently running SMP + VMware. If you want to use Linux but don't want to set it up as a service. Can you just set it up like you do in VMware with this:

mkdir -p ~/folding/FAH
cd ~/folding/FAH
w
get http://folding.stanford.edu/release/FAH_SMP_Linux.tgz
tar xzf FAH_SMP_Linux.tgz


and run it each time you go into Linux?

Also, one time I accidentally closed the Terminal Window so I couldn't monitor the client anymore but I knew it was still going in the System Monitor. Is there anything I can type in a new Terminal Window that can still monitor the process of the client without having to stop the client somehow and then restart it in a new terminal window?

You could always use the 'tail' command on the FAHlog.txt to see its current status.

As far as I can tell, it "watches" a text file you specify for updates. So if you "tail" the FAHlog.txt file, it will show it updating.

tail -s 60 -f foldingathome/CPU1/FAHlog.txt

all tail does is display the last few bytes of the file.

EDIT* read the man page and the -s 60 tells the command to check the file every 60 seconds, while sleeping in between checks.

Thanks guys.

Also, would there be any difference between running the SMP in Kubuntu vs. Ubuntu since the only real main difference is KDE vs. Gnome?

Is it possible to fold without leaving a trace on the computer? I have a work laptop I can bring home at night to fold on. The only problem is that I can't leave a trace I've done so. Can I boot off LiveCD and put my fah on a thumb drive? Can I set it up to boot off the thumb drive? The bios is password protected, however, I can choose to boot off CD or other attached media. Will this leave my hd untouched? Thanks for the help.
