    Re: [Linux] Compiling optimized SETI client using FFTW3

    Thanks for the reply........
    I am getting closer, I checked for the gcc and add'd a newer one, then checked for some make stuff and but didnt see any newer.
    Anywase, I now have the lib folder in the boinc dir. but no boinc_api.o, and I now have a seti executable.
    I am gonna check for more dev packages and try it again........

    Re: [Linux] Compiling optimized SETI client using FFTW3

    If you have a seti binary (executable), does it run?

    Re: [Linux] Compiling optimized SETI client using FFTW3

    Congrats - looks like you've done it then

    Also try running the standard native berkeley linux client with the reference work unit for comparison to see how much improvement your efforts have afforded you

    Re: [Linux] Compiling optimized SETI client using FFTW3

    What optimization flags did you use on the client you compiled - it looks like they didn't take. If you do a straight compile with no optimizations, you get a client that's slightly slower than the default berkeley client.

    When you reinstall, make sure you select to install all the development packages, then you should have everything you need on your system.

    What distro are you using?

    Re: [Linux] Compiling optimized SETI client using FFTW3

    I've updated the first post in this thread to now also link to my optimized seti binary for download if anyone wants to run it. It's for Athlon XP only at the moment. See the notes I added for more info.
