    The new Hexus Teams - Setting up Folding at Home

    Here's the new team for F@H:

    Team Stats
    Folding@Home - After joining it may take a while before your name appears in this list.
    More team stats: www.HEXUS.net - Team Summary - EXTREME Overclocking Folding @ Home Stats

    Installing / Running - Using the basic client - Single core folding
    1. Download Folding@home - Download, Install
    2. Enter your username (search f@h site to make sure it's unique)
    3. Enter 69776 as the team number.
    4. Enter your passkey (get one here: http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-passkey)

    ATI / Nvidia GPU Users - Graphics core folding - Using the GPU client:
    Get the latest drivers for your graphics card: from ATI or nvidia
    Get DirectX9c or later: Microsoft Download
    Download GPU Client Folding@home - Download, Install / Run
    FAQ: ATI GPU FAQ, ATI 2, Nvidia GPU FAQ

    Dual Core / Quad Core Users - Multiple core folding - using the SMP client: *
    1. Install .Net Framework 2.0 (microsoft download)
    2. Download the "Windows 2000/XP/Vista SMP client console version" from Folding@home - Download,
    - scroll down to the high performance clients link to find the SMP clients and get the MPICH version -
    3. Run the FAH setup program you've just downloaded in step 1.
    4. Run install.bat from the F@H directory
    5. Run the fah.exe client
    6. Enter your username (search f@h site to make sure it's unique)
    7. Enter 69776 as the team number.
    8. Enter your passkey (get one here: http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-passkey)
    9. Setup a shortcut the the fah program and add -smp to enable multi-processor support

    Still not sure? - Choosing the most productive / best client to run:
    http://forums.hexus.net/distributed-...lated-f-h.html (by webby)

    NB - SMP does not currently allow running FAH as a service (so do not enable that feature when asked).

    * Instructions tested with Windows XP, for Vista you will need to run the program as admin, and will need to run the install.bat file from a cmd prompt that has also been run as administrator (for more information see the Vista SMP instruction on the folding at home wiki). For both XP and Vista - your windows user account needs to have a password, blank passwords will not work.

    There have been some "teething" problems, and a reinstall, or allowing units over 5mb may help, also make sure the client does not use Internet Explorer internet settings as this can cause problems

    There's also a Seti@Home Hexus Team as well just in case anyone's interested:
    www.HEXUS.net

    For anyone that wants to do compute against cancer, you can do that here:
    Compute Against Cancer - Powered by Parabon Computation, Inc. (but there doesn't appear to be any team system in place).

    Added the F@H team ID to mine this morning when I got in.

    Fingers crossed it should have done the first unit later today

    Hmm.. mine's been folding since early evening yesterday and I entered the Hexus team ID when I set it up.. does it take a while for members to show up (or is my digital hallitosis stopping me from showing?)

    I've never actually done any distributed computing before so I'm not sure if this is something to be concerned about or not.

    My MCE media rig is flying through these work units now and the display shows no WU returned yet the stats show 4 WU done and dusted.

    Ahh well - fingers crossed I'll get it on more than 1 system soon and crunch a few more units

    It does take a while before the team page shows members.

    you only show up once you've completed a WU... I appeared late last night when my work rig completed one.

    ok... Redlight proves that one wrong... but i had been folding on this one for 2 days!

    ^^That's one of the reasons I queried it - Redlight's 0 - anyway, not to worry, I'm within a couple of hours of finishing my first WU!

    Redlight 0. I am getting the hump here.
    I have completed a large WU and it has been trying to sent the result for over a day and I will be finished another large one tonight.

    Edit just checked I am up there twice I am getting confused now. Maybe because I altered my name as i was folding for another forum a while back.

    I was resting my system for a day or two as I seem to be having a few issues with the odd BSOD appearing. I've figured out it's probably down to my 2.5 year old windows install and plan to format in the future.

    Watch my rig spit these out once again

    Fixed... some n00b forgot to tick the box for the large work units so it's only been doing the smaller ones...

    Yes, two ways:

    1) Using the beta SMP client.

    2) Launching two console-only clients, each configured to a seperate machine ID.

    Does it do 2 work units at the same time (one per CPU)? or does it do 1 work unit and spread the work between the CPUs?

    Got it setup and running okay
