FAHClient 7.4.4 Released

Postby jackrabbit » Sun Mar 23, 2014 10:09 am

A couple of days ago, Stanford released version 7.4.4 of the folding software. Release notes since the previous release version (7.3.6) can be found at the [url=https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=96&t=26025#p261024]official forum[/url]. That is also the main channel for posting bug reports. Of course, you can also ask such questions [url=http://www.teammacosx.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=300]right here[/url].

FYI, I have installed the new version on both an OSX and a Linux machine. The WU that was being processed at the time was continued without problems by the new version.

Happy folding!

FAHClient 7.4.4 Released

Hello, jackrabbit!

[quote="jackrabbit"]Release notes since the previous release version (7.3.6) can be found at the [url=https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=96&t=26025#p261024]official forum[/url].

When I click on the link you provide for the official forum, and then the link "Pictorial Installation Guide (Linux) -> A detailed pictorial guide of the V7 installation.", I get to a page that refers to v 7.3.6.

Scrolling down to the instructions for Manual Installation, again, the Terminal commands (which are incomplete) refer to v 7.3.6

I can always adapt them for v 7.4.4 (I assume, and unless advised otherwise) as in :

FAHClient:
wget --no-check-certificate https[color=#FF0000]<colon>[/color]//fah.stanford.edu/file-releases/public/release/fahclient/debian-testing-64bit/v7.4/fahclient_7.4.4_amd64.deb

FAHControl:
wget --no-check-certificate https[color=#FF0000]<colon>[/color]//fah.stanford.edu/file-releases/public/release/fahcontrol/debian-testing-64bit/v7.4/fahcontrol_7.4.4-1_all.deb

FAHViewer:
wget --no-check-certificate https[color=#FF0000]<colon>[/color]//fah.stanford.edu/file-releases/public/release/fahviewer/debian-testing-64bit/v7.4/fahviewer_7.4.4_amd64.deb

This is for my Ubuntu 12.04.4 machine.

I'm mystified as to how folk manage to get to the v 7.4.4 stuff while I seem to get sidetracked into the old v 7.3.6.

Indeed, it looks like the guides have not been updated yet.

This is how I got to the download:
• Go to the project [url=https://folding.stanford.edu]home page[/url]
• Click on "Start Folding"
• Click on "Download" (or "See all downloads" in case that's what you want to do).

Yes, I saw that link, thanks.

I'm going to go the Terminal route though. It's a trick I learned, as a complete noob, when I started folding on my Ubuntu machine in June 2012, and I'll do it that way for old times sake.

I see that 41 petaflops are quoted for F@H's 'supercomputer' output. A mighty beast!
