Hi, I have been testing out a Cuda wrapper for WINE to make the Folding@Home GPU Windows client run on Linux.
You can get up to speed here
We have the client running but it seem that not only does the FAH process use up one full core but so does Xorg. This is a dual core system. When Xorg is requesting this much CPU time it basically locks up the computer. The client still runs until stopped but the computer is mostly useless during that time.
Why is Xorg using a full core during this? Are the Cuda Linux libraries currently out of sync with the Windows version in any way? This is similar to how this client acted in Windows before a few driver updates were released. Can we expect any similar optimizations for Linux any time soon?
