Linux install for dedicated folding machine
 
So I've decided to give Linux a shot to see if I can possibly get more PPD out of my machines. At the suggestion of Dead Things I installed Ubuntu Server, which is a CLI OS, so no pretty GUI or any GUI for that matter.

I was able to install Ubuntu Server after a few attempts. Went to boot to it for the first time I get these errors. Don't know a thing about Linux so if anyone know what is going on I'd appreciate it..

Disable ACPI on startup and see if that helps first..

pciehp = pcie Hot Plug, your server pci e ( or a card on it ) don't support HP and your Ubuntu is expecting one, what is your board ?

The board is an EVGA SR-2.

a bit off topic maybe, but does it work well with a client, doesnt have to be ubuntu? :)

I don't care what I use as long as I can fold. I would prefer GUI-less to squeeze every bit of performance out of it though.

just saying, since i try whatever s closer on my desk when i have doubts. ubuntu,fedora,mint..the list is long

if that fails, then there's a hardware or perhaps settings issue. in this case,as per above setting probably since windows was

working fine before, right?

I had issues with fedora, ubuntu and redhat enterprise when I was running linux on my folding machines. Every one would either have kernel issues or some form of stability issues.

The only linux distribution that worked "out of the box" for folding, on all my machines was Debian.
The only reason i'm running win2k3 servers on my folding machines is (1) I have a site license and (2) linux bigadv went down the tubes. Is bigadv for A3 working on linux now?

Supposedly they are just around the corner from working again. And according to Dead Things the regular SMP units are considerably faster (20%+) in Linux.

as far as I know the Linux OS is the Best OS for Number crunching / scientific things also as servers MS is for the average user home PC .the thing is you have to do most things from the CMD line. if you are not to familiar to Linux ( like myself, I just stumble my way through hehe) I advise going to LinuxQuestions.org that site is the best site that I have found for anything Linux. when you post a question it usually gets answered withing 10 mins.
