It would be great if we could get LQ way up high in rank.

I just downloaded the linux console version and put it in my home directory. The first time I started it I logged into tty2 (ctrl+alt+f2) typed ls and then typed ./thefilenameofthelinuxdl
Now I log into tty2 and press up. I am sure there is an easier way but I like doing it. I hate having to stop things that start automatically.

I have a question or two, and I decided to check out your forums for some help. I'm folding for Team Mac OS X (I know, the enemy ) and I downloaded Ubuntu the other night to put on a couple old boxes I have sitting around. What are the steps necessary to get Folding software up and running in Linux. I had never even seen Linux until the other night, so I'm a definite noob (I did get into Terminal, but not enough to really count)! My second question is if there is a distro of Linux that builds Folding software into the set up. Our team has produced some great software for setting up Folding on Macs and Windows machines using Stanfords original software (and done with Stanford's knowledge and blessing), but I have no idea if such a thing exists in the Linux world. Any thoughts on that?

In response to speel's question, Folding@Home is definitely working. One of our team members did an interview with Vijay Pande, the head of the F@H program at Stanford University. You can hear the results in that interview. Both audio and transcripts are available in our forums at http://www.teammacosx.com. If I remember correctly, and its been a while since I listened to it, there is a new treatment for Parkinson's that is just starting the testing phase. It is a direct result of the Folding project. The Folding project has also resulted in more reviewed articles published in academic publications than any other distributed computing project. I recommend that you check out the interview, there's a ton of great info to be had.

Thanks for any help! I greatly appreciate it. And yes, we welcome Folders from other teams on our forums (and make our software freely available as well!), so feel free to drop by and say, "Hi."

Fold On!

Sorry it has taken so long to reply treadlightly... but yes, getting this to work on a linux machine is the easiest of all. D/L the program following the link at the stanford site and follow the directions above. If you have any questions feel free to ask. We have been climbing lately from 331 to 327 last I saw.
