OK, I have some problems. I have quite a few friends that want to help me out and fold for team 32, but they all run freebsd, sun, etc. Only a select few run linux and those are mostly on slow boxes anyway.

I wanted to know if someone was working on a fbsd port or what.

And no, they won't install windows :D. I can't really blame them.

Totally command line, no KDE or GNOME or even xwin. Command prompt is all they got.

Great for servers, bad for folding I see.

You can fold in FreeBSD. Its easy. Get the latest Linux Client. Then:

brandelf -t Linux FAH3Console-Linux.exe

To run the client and make sure it makes the scientific cores it downloads work correctly,

./FAH3Console-Linux.exe -freeBSD

If the CPU is capable, you may want to use this instead:

./FAH3Console-Linux.exe -freeBSD -advmethods -forceasm



There is no port to work for the Sun Architecture.

Sun Sparcs

You'll be waiting a very long time. Back when the project was [email protected] 1 (as opposed to 3 as it is now) they had a SUN port. They cancelled support for SUN when the project went to version 2 and have no plans to ressurrect support for SUN. That's about 40 CPU's I'm missing out on that could be folding, even if they are just wimpy 64 bit 450mhz.
