Post:
Frequency (in Hz) that should try to complete individual work chunks. Higher numbers may run slower but will provide a more responsive system. Lower may be faster but more laggy.
default 60 (corresponds to 60 fps)
Period (in milliseconds) to check for scene updates
Change how fast the view randomly moves around
Make particles bigger or smaller
Make particles bigger or smaller when using uglier particles


Thanks,
Steve

Yes, I've had the same problem on two of my crunchers, both of them failed to recognize my GPUs after upgrading from 13.10 to 14.04. I've had to stop running Milkyway and go to Einstein as it works fine with either 12, 13 or 14 versions of Linux. Seems Milkyway needs to fix something to make it compatible with 14.04 or 14.04 needs to change, don't know and don't care, just want to crunch without having to mess with software drivers.
