Optimized AstroPulse_v6 6.01 for Linux 64 & 32 Bit OS
Updated 26th/27th/29th march 2012 w/ new application AstroPulse v6 6.01, revision 546

Seven Linux OS specific editions available now at Lunatics AstroPulse for Linux Public Downloads area

Hi Everyone,
A new version of a SETI@Home AstroPulse optimized application for Linux has been released.

This release offers significantly improved performance for SSE, SSE2, SSE3/PNI & AVX capable computers running 64 and 32 Bit distributions of Linux.
Here you can find a list containing all the following release builds:

Linux 64 Bit Science App:

A Linux 64 Bit AVX Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 64 bit Linux that have at least AVX capability.

A Linux 64 Bit SSE3/PNI Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 64 bit Linux that have SSE3 (listed as PNI in /proc/cpuinfo) capability.

A Linux 64 Bit SSE2 Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 64 bit Linux that have SSE2 capability.

Linux 32 Bit Science App:

A Linux 32 Bit SSE Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 32 bit Linux that have SSE capability.

A Linux 32 Bit SSE2 Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 32 bit Linux that have SSE2 capability.

A Linux 32 Bit SSE3/PNI Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 32 bit Linux that have SSE3 (listed as PNI in /proc/cpuinfo) capability.

A Linux 32 Bit AVX Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 32 bit Linux that have AVX capability.

Linux build source is located HERE


VERY IMPORTANT!!! Note that correct install of these applications requires ADVANCED SKILLS.

A customized app_info.xml file WILL need to be properly created and edited if you also run a version of the S@H multi beam application and or CUDA MB application (see below "issues").  Done incorrectly, you may trash your work unit cache and or not be able to receive work.

There will be some known issues and situations to be aware of:
SO:
- As mentioned above, You WILL need to edit or create an appropriate app_info.xml file if you run any combination of Astropulse, Multi-beam, and CUDA MB applications.
- Ensure you choose a build that your CPU/OS will support.  Ask for help If you need assistance determining this. (less /proc/cpuinfo)
- Ensure Boinc & Seti@Home applications are already properly functioning on your machine, read carefully the documentation readmes and installation instructions.
Known issues:
- There is no support for CPUs below SSE capability
- Borderline OC'ers be aware that you may need to back off to maintain stability, the increased throughput of this application will stress all system components more.
- Non overclockers make sure you have a proper cooling and a clean case.
- As always, use these apps AT YOUR OWN RISK.

And finally of course :
Thanks to Urs Echternacht for his Linux port of r546 by Raistmer, Josef W. Segur & JasonG !!!
