    finally got the ole dual 450 out of the closet and using an 802.11g wireless pci card (belkin f5d7000) as per help in a previous thread.

    down loaded the .dmg for dual processors and am at a loss.
    1. Is this a terminial app?
    2. If so can some one walk me through it?

    I love macs cause I don't have to go to places like the terminal. I used to say I would rather be in hell than be in dos and terminal gives me high blood pressure.

    I really need to get these 2 old processor humming cause sparklytone has been kicking my arse and I don't like it! :mad: ( ;) )

    Ok, I really need help here. I am thinking that I should do a rid command and basically uninstall, but am not sure I understand the implications as stated in the "read me".

    Well I'm not shy of self deprication, but this forum is notorious for slow replies, thanks for your "priceless" though. :cool:

    The folding community is very helpful, the real problem is that not many folders use the software to fold on 2 processors and therefore are not able to help extensively. This thread is a great example.

    looks like u started the process either by using start more than once

    or

    u installed it more than once

    or

    something else is going on :)

    just use the rid command and try again. if u've never been in terminal before than this command's side effects won't affect you

    if everything goes well u should only have 2 fahcores running. if not post again and we'll go from there

    thankyou, here goes a run at "rid"
    btw running 10.2.8 on dual 450 with 1.128 gb ram

    edit: went in terminal, typed "rid" then responded "yes".

    In process viewer there is no longer a F@H running.

    will try another install. then type start once.

    I was reading the one I reference in this thread, and did some searches and of course FAQ, but did not find enough specific to my delimea.

    But with the assist, I am now crunching my way to revenge sparklytones tire treads on my back and bumm. :p
