    Re: Another New Frog

    Thanks for the welcome guys

    I've been folding for a long time at nV News, but unfortunately the folding community is quite dead (never was a lot of interest). Riptide is the only nV News guy left.

    I've always enjoyed reading the articles here and watching the podcasts, so it seems like a good community to join. I'd love to help you guys pass Rage3d!

    Right now it's just 2 Q9400 SMP boxes, but I'm debating about throwing a bit more stuff online. It's cold in my office and rather than fighting to change the thermostat everyday, I'll just generate some extra heat. Those bigadv points look pretty tempting, so it would be a good time to stretch the legs on my i7 2600k.

    And welcome again...

    By the way a dedicated I7 2600k smp -bigadv on linux at 4.5 gig will get around 35000 PPD depending on work unit.

    sounds nice, I'm not one to turn down 2 Q9400's

    with the recent ppd cut by stanford, that 2600k won't net you quite what it used to, but its definitely worth throwing some bigadv its way. dedicated linux is the best option from a PPD standpoint, but I've been reading some talk about putting in on a linux VM within windows. Sounds like you get a nice hefty bonus over doing it on windows native. If you want more info on that I can point you in the right direction

    Re: Another New Frog

    I'll probably just throw together a native linux install on gentoo for that box. Running W7 for the 2 quads and I'm guessing the difference for that is going to be minimal.

    Might check this out too: http://www.linuxforge.net/docs/crunching/dc-pxe.php

    I have tftp/pxe on a laptop so I might be able to push these clients out.

    What's funny is that minecraft acts the same way. The server runs so much better in a VM on top of windows than it does natively. There definitely is room for improvement on their windows code.

    Re: Another New Frog

    Gentoo???? This guy can't be all that bad.

    I tried to build a small cluster using Gentoo + an tftp. It worked pretty slick with a laptop I had at the time from work. But I couldn't get any motherboards with on-board nics to work. At the time I ended up doing some reading and found many manufacturers didn't follow proper PXE standards so it was hit & miss as far as getting to work. I probably would have had more success with higher end boards, but that would have put my hardware costs through the roof. In the end, I ended up abandoning the project just ran the test boards I had as individual computers.

    well that sounds pretty sweet, but i'll warn you that if you start getting technical, i'll be lost pretty quick! Case in point, i'm running a pretty standard ubuntu install, followed a guide and it STILL didn't go 100% smooth

    I think at this point onboard NIC support is a lot better. my SR-2 uses Marvell 88E8057 PHYs and had no issue with NIC support on Ubuntu, and these are less common than your standard realtek chips

    Re: Another New Frog

    The network card them selves actually worked well in Linux. Had the drivers all built into the kernel as I should. The problem was the network booting system on the card's bios. They weren't finding my PXE server properly and/or calling the boot image properly.

    Re: Another New Frog

    I know what you mean

    Right now my Gentoo box is lacking support for my Realtek NIC, but the minimal install cd had the drivers for it. I was pressed for time so I just grabbed an Intel Pro 100S and put that into the box. They are like the universal fix because any OS in the past 10 years is going to have the driver built in for it.

    Everything that I normally PXE is a prebuilt Dell or HP so they all work flawlessly. I'm sure it would get a bit harder to do that on some Nforce boards.

    I have a few intel NICs floating around as testers and in my home server. they seem to be pretty much the gold standard and they aren't super expensive

    First page, why not?


    Going to slow down dramatically now though. Take a couple of days per person to pass.
