AMD64

Unread postby Augustine » 16.08.2007 16:38

Since you've asked, a native x86-64 client would be cool. Some BOINC projects experienced significant performance improvements when their applications were ported to x86-64.

I ported SETI Classic to x86-64 and helped out several projects in their porting efforts, such as Chess960 and Predictor, and I'd be glad to be of service.

Hello,
thx for your offer. But I use existing applications and include these with the Boinc wrapper. There is no application for windows64 because there is not performance improvement of it.
Here is the list of clients which can be included:

But x86-64 Linux is supported according to the info in the link above (AMD64/ELF). Or am I missing something?

Thanks.

Hello,
I added the AMD64 version for Linux. I use the 32bit version of wrapper which calls the 64bit version of cruncher. Hope this works.

Even though there's an official AMD64 client for Linux, it refers to too many dynamic libraries and requires a fairly recent Linux setup to run on.

So, one more time, I'm making available the AMD64 Linux client here. It refers to a minimal set of standard dynamic libraries whose version requirements should be satisfied by Linux systems up to 2 or 3 years old, however it was built with a fairly recent version of GCC, 4.1.2.

The drill's still the same:

The official AMD64 Windows client can be found here.

For more information, see the BoincStats Forum.
