Langouste 15.18 is now available


I'm pleased to announce availability of Langouste 15.18.

It works around Folding@Home bug that can, under certain conditions, prevent the client from retrieving WUs until queue.dat file is removed or client is uninstalled and reinstalled again.

If you're running Ubuntu Folding Appliance or followed musky's Ubuntu Desktop Installation Guide, follow the steps below:
  1. Log in
  2. Open new terminal (if using GUI)
  3. Run:

    sudo fahinstall

    Naturally, provide your password if so requested.
  4. Fahinstall should complete without error, print your hostname, IP address and request a reboot. Given the scope of the upgrade, a reboot is not required.
  5. You're done :-)
If you're running standalone/custom setup, follow upgrade Langouste per instructions on Langouste's page.

Feel free to share your comments below and subscribe if you'd like to be kept in the loop on this and other developments!

Langouste is a Folding@Home WU upload/download decoupler with number of additional features. To learn more, visit Langouste's page.
