Excellent Tutorial and script.
With the http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?p=1037125472#post1037125472 BFS Install (this is a 16 core 8389), it went smooth, then I rebooted.
It's been doing MEMTEST 86+ for an hour now, and I can't figure out how to cancel it. I tried C-Config>Test Settings> but I could not get it to SKIP TEST.
Eventually it will finish, but will it do this everytime I boot?
I knew how fast this machine was, and it has a brother also without BFS.
"... If you have 32 (threads) or less, you should at least try BFS and see how it affects your frame times..."
Never done it personally but I figure pointing it to something like \\ip-address-of-linux-box\fah-share should work (e.g. \\192.168.1.15\fah).hmmm, OK, I got HFM.net set up on the windows box, and got it showing the local client there, but I'm a bit confused on how to get it to show the linux box, should I start a new thread?
It is definitely worth a try. Let us know what you find out, or if you are still having issues booting to the correct kernel.
In the tutorial, it says "If your file looks like this (pic), with the top two with -ck designators you are good to go.
Mine looked like the example so I set grub=2 where the designators were (like the pic). Should have have skipped editing the grub file?
Any word on when the script will be available again? I don't see a link for it in post #2.

I come across this comment from another folding forum. Is it correct that with v6.34 there is a downtime in between finishing a WU and crunching on the next one?I'd go with V7 anyways since it can start on another WU while it's uploading the finished WU. Less downtime in between.
I have upgraded one of my 4P Folders from Ubuntu 10.10 to 12.04. The installation was so easy - easier than a Windows installation, IMO. Thank you very much. I also enjoyed the download/installation guide that automatically installed and performed the base configurations for bigadv Folding, 6.34, with thekraken and Langouste. Wow, simply wow!
The machine has already completed two bigadv work units successfully without issues. Smooth as silk.
I cannot say enough good things about Musky, Tear, et al, who made this possible. I apologize that I can't find the list of all those who deserve credit. Rest assured, I may not know your names, but I salute you. You have my full respect.
