I have an older install of Arch without the Cuda package, and NVidia GPU folding works fine. However on a new Arch install, it wouldn't work without it. Anyone know what might be going on?

Along the same lines as Skeevy420's request, I think the cuda package for nvidia should be an optional dependency:

My nvidia GPU errored out until I installed this package.

Could "opencl-amd" be added as an optional dependency? With CIK enabled to use AMDGPU (free) with my R7 260X, opencl-mesa doesn't work and my GPU always fails. After installing "opencl-amd" which uses AMDGPU Pro's OpenCL with the mesa driver, my GPU folds just fine. Using mesa 17.0.1 and linux-lqx 4.9.13-2.

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.
