So, it says I'm BOINC 6.2.18 for Linux....

Just updated to CCC 9.9 in Linux (my weekend project - almost broke my install last time I tried...but didn't need them with BOINC being the only thing I did on it previously)

Newest Linux version of BOINC is 6.6.36 (Linux x64)...link on that page for GPU's...says I need 6.1.0 for ATI...which I thought wasn't out yet...

can't find the Milky way APP..

it's (BOINC CLIENT) never recognized my card (4870 1 GB)...I'm dying for it to..

So am I on a different version schedule due to Linux? I just want the thing, badly.

I'm building an HTPC to cool the downstairs this winter, hopefully quad coring it with the GPU..

Just give me the app...let me burn my house down please. I'll be a guinea pig if you want to release it on my machine...

So how do I get this thing....and should I update the BOINC client, or should it not really matter and wait for Ubuntu to autoupdate it for me?

Second question...should I just give up and get an Nvidia card for crunching? Thing is...800 stream processors...come on...I don't want to give that up - I'd rather let it heat my house while saving the world (albeit slightly expensively).







for MW you will find the app here.

they showed you above where to get 6.10.4 Boinc already.....

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

read the read me file that comes with the app to set it up for your machine.

the cuda card will run well over at Colatz or Seti@home. so will the ATI card on Colatz :)

That would surprise me. It's Windows only for the GPU applications so far.

Thank you, so I'm not crazy - I checked all those links...there's no GPU with Linux anywhere right? I use Linux because it beat my vista on CPU only by 30%...

But if I can use the GPU over in Vista, I'll switch over to that and download everything needed - that's all I was asking or getting at.

Thanks... I'll check it out tomorrow.

Got all these fancy animations now in Ubuntu with 9.9 I didn't have with stock..

Back to Vista, also CCC 9.9 - and I'll test this out...
