Seems to be working....
System is running Ubuntu
Downloaded to and installed from my home directory...  couple of errors on WCG's install page tho.

# Download the BOINC installation file from the BOINC website and place it into a desired directory.  (home works fine)
# Open a command line window and change to the directory where you downloaded the BOINC installation file.
# Make the installation file executable:  chmod 700 boinc_5.2.2_i686-pc-linux-gnu.sh
# Install BOINC:  ./boinc_5.2.2_i686-pc-linux-gnu.sh
cd BOINC

Then, all I had to do was run:
./boinc -attach_project   http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org cc17014a27e50d3749dffd1ca3884e4

All you shold need to change is the string I colored green to whatever they gave you to use. (It was on the WCG install instructions page, and they were also nice enough to send it to me via e-mail.

[Edit]  Remover the included WCG errors...  Made it harder to folow.

I tried that and all went OK but my Linux boxes are all old P3's with 128MB (shared) RAM.  Seems like the same conditions apply under Linux - 128MB RAM minimum  Sad

PC-100 or 133 ram?   Getting cheap. 128mb $28...
If EDO/SIMM, that's cheap too, but the biggest card I found easily was 64mb $17

Hmmm....  Looking at the list at Tiger Direct, looks like ALL the prices are dropping SODIMM as well..  
Keeps this up, and the notebook may just get a memory boost.

PC133 - all CAS 3 but I have a couple of CAS 2's but the machines don't seem to like it  Sad

I just read at WCG that the Linux client will require 256MB RAM - as my machines have shared video it would be cheaper to get Windows and run with lower RAM  Rolleyes

57min showing 41% completed.  Not bad since it's sharing with Folding.

Compy said the same - had a look and not as much as I thought.  Not happy about the 256 minimum though  :evil:

probably more foresight on their part....they may have somewhere in the program itself that looks for the minimum, and if a new project comes around that needs that minimum amount, it's easier if it's already set...  just a random guess.  though it likely would have been wiser to write it like the windows client where it checks to see after downloading the unit if the correct around of ram is available, instead of hardcoding it like i suspect.


sounds like they went terminal-style client....good to hear they didn't do something silly like DIMES did... Tongue  why a giant graphical client that eats up all your memory for a program that just pings right and left is necessary kinda baffles me lol

The only problem I've had with thier rebates, is the short expiration time.

I've learned to watch the dates..  Every one I've filed has been paid within the 4-6 weeks advertised.

Well,  there have only been two.....  Got them both.  May be someone may have missed reading the end date for thier rebate.

I've seen lots of great rebates there that were listed to expire on the same day I saw the price.

Buyer beware on those.

Thinking  Why run WCG if I can go straight through BOINC and still do Rosetta HPF?

http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/

[email protected] is a scientific research project that uses internet-connected computers to predict and design protein structures, and protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions. Our goal is to develop methods that accurately predict and design protein structures and complexes, an endeavor that may ultimately help researchers develop cures for human diseases (See the  Human Proteome Folding Project, a collaborative effort to apply our software on the human genome).

Hmmm strange...  The last link goes to WCG.

 Thinking Predictor looks like another interesting project.

I got the linux version of WCG running and it attached to the project.  Got this anyways

[World Community Grid] Starting result de239_48_2 using rosetta version 419

I also used the special secret code they emailed me.  Tongue  So its apparently running but when I look in the boinc manager there is nothing there.  So how do I know where this will even go.  Cry  Was i suppose to do something else as well.  I'm not showing a new device for this at WCG either.   Doh  Rolleyes  Cry

If you just started it, it will take a day or so to show up on your device list.  When Boinc returns your first stats to WCG.  Takes a short time to to thier validation bit. Points show up later than you expect due to this also. But it seems to work.

So its ok if the boinc manager is empty.  Guess I'll just let it run and see what happens.  Is there any way to see what % its at?  Huh
