First, I'm a Linux newb and I'm having difficulties getting my machine to fold. I'm hoping that someone may be able to help. I've installed different AMD Linux drivers (the latest and the previous ones). Everything seemed to install correctly with both driver installs. I can monitor the GPU using the following in the terminal:
Code:
watch -n5 aticonfig --adapter=all --odgt --odgc


I've done some searching and not found much help. The most helpful thing that I have found was from our friends at Overclock.net: http://www.overclock.net/t/1506137/ubun ... tu-gpu-cpu

I will likely post there too asking for help, but any help would be cool!

My specs are:
CPU: Intel i7 930
GPU: Radeon HD 7970
OS: Linux Mint 17.1 with MATE

Hey Gero, excited to see that you're going the Linux route. So exciting!

Sorry, can't help out at all :( But, it would be a real asset to team 11108 if you document your progress to make it accessible for others that want to give it a go.

Good luck, friend!

Thanks Lemur!

So far I've got the CPU crunching away, but haven't had any luck with getting the GPU to go yet. Some points are better than no points. Up to this point it has been as easy as on Windows. Simply download and install V7 (client and control), then fire it up. I will give any pointers on getting the GPU going when it happens for me.
