Please consider downloading the latest version of folding instead.
Based on some more testing and user feedback I’ve done some bug squashing in my Folding @ Home deployment script. Attached are the updated v0.2 files.
A few things to consider:
If you want to install the Folding @ Home client on your (single) machine unpack the archive and simply run:
chmod u+x FAH-installer.sh
If you want to deploy the Folding @ Home client across multiple machines in your network run:
chmod u+x FAH-deploy.sh
note: the deployment script connects as the root user. You may need to temporarily activate the root user on Ubuntu networked machines for it to work properly.
Just a little note.
The user has to chmod +x the FAH-installer.sh file.
It isn’t hard to do, you should just let people know before the hate mail starts.
You should fetch the finstall from ra.vendomar.ee and not from http://www.vendomar.ee. The ra.vendomar.ee is the main machine carrying the finstall script. The http://www.vendomar.ee should forward any connection attempts to ra.vendomar.ee, but it has failed to do that on couple of occasions.
Ivo – I have updated the script based on your suggestion. Thank you. It will be available as of the next release.
I see that you have your own set of service installers, but is there a reason not to use the installService/uninstallService scripts provided by the finstall itself?
