Gallium OS & FAH help

Post by ProDigit » Sat Dec 15, 2018 1:40 am

Hey guys,

I have a small netbook, running Gallium OS.
It has the Chromium browser, and the webpage doesn't seem to work.
I was able to install the deb packages of the control panel and Client, however the FAHviewer gave me an error installing:

Code: Select all

Preparing to unpack .../freeglut3_2.8.1-2_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking freeglut3:amd64 (2.8.1-2) over (2.8.1-2) ...
Setting up fahclient (7.5.1) ...
update-rc.d: error: no runlevel symlinks to modify, aborting!
dpkg: error processing package fahclient (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Setting up freeglut3:amd64 (2.8.1-2) ...
Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.23-0ubuntu10) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
 fahclient
I then installed alien to convert the RPM package to a deb package (5.1 RPM vs 5.2 on deb), which it did successfully,
The viewer now runs fine, I can see some atoms moving on a world map by night.

When starting, FAHcontrol, just remains idle, saying 'client local connection idle'.
I have Wifi, and my CPU is idle.
The app does not automatically start from browser.
I did follow the guidelines on enabling NaCI .
What am I missing?

ok, seems that the folding works on a chrome browser, but I'm still not able to start the client.

Since this is an exotic distribution, some packages needed by the client are probably missing ...

Is it based on Debian or RedHad ? Which package of FAHClient did you use (we have both DEB and RPM packages available) ?

I explained more at https://github.com/FoldingAtHome/fah-issues/issues/1217

GalliumOS is based on Xubuntu, which is base on Ubuntu.
They use Debian, though the debian package of the client is broken, I got the redhat package converted to debian, and installed, but it doesn't work, and doesn't allow me to uninstall it either.

The viewer and control installed flawlessly.
