Freshly installed, ran FAHClient --configure, enabled/started the service, and it fails to grab work units. I checked the IP's it's requesting against the server status page, and they weren't listed. Does this have anything to do with the FAH blog post from yesterday about certain servers being down? Can I control which IP's my FAHClient is trying to talk to?

opencl-mesa should be added as an optional dep for folding with AMD GPUs.

foldingathome.service should be installed to /usr/lib/systemd/system/, not /etc/systemd/system/.

In order to use the GPU client on a Nvidia card, opencl-nvidia is also required.

I've made a new version of this that creates an fah user and runs the client as that instead of root. Let me know what you think.

Updated to the latest version and dropped initscript support.

Adopted and updated!
If anyone was using my old foldingathome-v7 package, please update to this one and copy your config.xml from the /opt/fah-v7/ folder to the /opt/fah/ folder.

@Snowman
I just sent that TU an email and asked him if would orphan it for me.
We will see....

It would make more sense to update the foldingathome PKGBUILD instead of creating this one. The foldingathome PKGBUILD is maintained by a TU but it has been out-of date for 6 months. You might want to report/ask for help on the aur ML.

Updated the package to include a systemd script and to fix the download error.
Thanks to luolimao for all the help!
