Well, I got Seti up and running perfectly on my windows computers, partly because I know windows way better than Linux, but mainly because there is that sticky up there on how to do it. Isn't there a how-to to setup Seti on a Linux Workstation (not dedicated cruncher) running GNOME?!
Right now I switch my OS over to Windows XP at night because that is where I have a cache of WU and it works perfectly. I want to eliminate Windows and just run Mandrake Linux to crunch my WU's while using it as my desktop computer. Is there anyone out there who can tell me the steps they took to get it up and running with a nice cache in case of Berkeley downtime?
It' pretty simple really.
Download to a folder of your choice, such as c:\setiqueue.
Run the installer and point it back to your new folder such as c:\setiqueue
You can put a shortcut in your startup folder or ont he desktop etc.
Run the program and fill in the details under settings such as your seti ID and email address, how many days you want to cache etc.
It will not begin caching until the first client makes a request so don't worry that it does not show any units at first.
Go to each client, windows or linux etc., and change the shortcut/command line to something like this:
./setiathome -verbose -proxy 192.168.0.x:5517
"C:\Program Files\seti\seti0\seti0.exe" -verbose -proxy 192.168.0.x:5517
Use the appropriate IP address with the port ext. :5517 which is what SETIQueue uses for it's proxy.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Hope this helps, just replace the proxy address with
anyone who needs some work units should know that 2 people on our team have set up a setiqueue server that anyone can connect to and get some work units from so here they are
the first is B-Dogg who setup a server at
ip address=18.104.22.168 port=5517
second is Vodka314 who setup a server at
ip address=22.214.171.124 port=500
feel free to ask any questions on how to connect to them if u cant get it i'm sure they or i will reply with an answer
oh and for anyone who dosent know the ip address goes in the section for host on seti driver and port well i think u can guess that on your own
EDIT: we now have a third server setup by LUKE at
