Right now I think I want to start folding on my Chromebook. It's ARM based (Exynos 3 I think), and I'm on the Beta channel right now.

You will probably have to jump over to Chrubuntu to do it.


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. -- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

I think there was a way though (like some URL I had to go to and enable some things in the Flags).

If there is, I am unsure. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

I should probably summon @Whaler_99 for this.

You're fine. :D

Can't you use the Chrome web app?

 

I would assume it'd work with Google's own OS :P

I doubt it will give much PPD, really not worth it imo.

I didn't even know there was one.

Every little bit helps. Right now my grandma's A6 has all of the weight on it's shoulders, and I need some more power. Can't wait for spring break. Hopefully my new heatsink will arrive and I can set Vengeance free again, to fold 24/7.

This is the official Chrome App for it https://chrome.googl...obnofo?hl=en-US

If the Chrome App doesn't work, and I don't think it will, the Folding App certainly won't - they don't support that CPU. Must be Intel or AMD general use x86/x64 CPU's, not the lower end ones.

I did manage to get the App running, but I don't think it's going to work either because of that, or because I'm at school.

Okay, Mr. Smartypants. They'll give me in school suspension, charge me $250 for a $150 craptop, and take it away.

It appears that it is working, and right now it's working on project 2981.
