 Folding@home works on Freebsd...
Author: Mason Begley

I just wanted to verify that the Folding@home client (http://folding.stanford.edu) version 2.19 for linux works on freebsd. I downloaded the linux executable from the website, then ran:

brandelf -t Linux FAH2Console-v219-Linux.exe
chmod +x FAH2Console-v219-Linux.exe
./FAH2Console-v219-Linux.exe

This will attempt to download a new exe file (Core_65.exe) that will attempt to execute and will fail because it needs to be branded too. The client will just keep downloading it until it works, which won't happen. I hit control-c to exit, then I typed:

brandelf -t Linux Core_65.exe
./FAH2Console-v219-Linux.exe

And then it started to work. I'm not sure what the Core_65.exe file is yet, but I'm guessing that since there are more than one type of protein types, there are more than one executable. If this is true, once this program finishes, its going to try to download a new exe file that will need to be branded as well. But this is work in progress, I haven't seen it yet so who knows.

I'll post more later when I have ran this for a bit.

Dear Mason,

I may be wrong but the FAH3Console-v300-Linux.exe doesn't seem to work on FreeBSD.

Ik runs but it doesnt seem to fold any proteins.

Do you have encountered the same problem, is there a solution for this, or should I just try to get the v219 version?

Um you need to download the linux client file to a directory by itself and then type "brandelf -t Linux" on it.

Here is what I did to get the latest and greatest to work:

fetch http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/release/FAH3Console-Linux.exe

brandelf -t Linux FAH3Console-Linux.exe
chmod 750 FAH3Console-Linux.exe
./FAH3Console-Linux.exe

This will start the client and will ask you for your name/team and whatever else it needs to run. After you enter that in, it will start transfering another exe file called "FahCore_65.exe".
once it completes the download and you see the error "ELF binary type "0" not known", hold down the control and hit the C key. This will exit the program and then you can type:

brandelf -t Linux FahCore_65.exe

Once that is done. You should be able to restart the client by typing:

./FAH3Console-Linux.exe

This is what worked for me and I'm currently running it as we speak.
