I've got my file/print server running seti. It's running xubuntu 8.04 32-bit, and has a Athlon 64 3200+ CPU. My first problem was with the frequency staying at about half and I've fixed that. Computer ID 5271847, with
Measured floating point speed 1226.66 million ops/sec
Measured integer speed 2988.81 million ops/sec

Do these seem low for what it is? I ask because it seems like it's gonna take generally 16 hours per WU and I only run multibeam. This seems long to me.

thats about average now for aa AMD computer like that. AMD SSE tends to be a bit slower than the Intels. also, The sensitivity on the Multibeams was doubled a few months back. IF you know how to install BOINC maybe you'd hazard an optimized app for seti on your linux box. That might and most likely will cut your times down significantly.

Sure I can try that. I just wanted to make sure that nothing was actually wrong with it first, since that would be the first order of business. What specific app would you recommend? A cursory google basically just shows me windows stuff, and most of that is also astropulse (which I stopped running a while back because it ran way too long)

I found and "installed" (I can't call copy, paste an install) the one from the the optimized app post in the crunching forum. Hopefully that's the most up-to-date one. Doing that was a joke compared to manually doing nvidia drivers.

just make sure the app is specifically made for linux. most of the apps floating around out there are for windows
