Please consider downloading the latest version of folding instead.
After some more user feedback I have made some additional adjustments to the Folding @ Home Automated Installer and am releasing revision 0.3. Updates in this release include:
- General bug fixes
- More efficient collection of finstall script
- Execute permissions (u+x) now set within archive
- Improved init script creation
You can download your copy below if you’d like.. and thank you again to all that are running the Folding client and contributing to Stanfords medical research.

update: if you’re already running the Folding client there is no need to upgrade. Remember, this is simply an installer and any updates don’t affect the client itself or the working process.
I’ve tried upgrading from your first FAH installer release but I think it didn’t work.
If I run “sudo ./FAH-deploy.sh” for installation on the current PC it says that it launches the installer but then it doesn’t print anything more.
Then I tried with “sudo ./FAH-installer.sh” and it seems it worked fine until it said that:
‘/etc/init.d/folding’ is present.
Do You want to reinstall it?: yes
System startup links for /etc/init.d/folding already exist.
init script installed

RainCT – if you’re already running the Folding client there is no need to upgrade. It looks like your machine was already installed.
I’ll update the post (and future revisions) to remind of that fact.
