To be clear, nvidia users need to enable both foldingathome.service and foldingathome-nvidia.service.

Anyone know why it would be failing to detect my AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT card for OpenCL? It shows in FAHControl a "Not detected: clGetDeviceIDs() returned -1". I have the opencl-amd package installed and the card shows up in clinfo (and vapoursynth plugins have been able to use it.)

I also agree - it would be great to make this more available!

I agree with xuanruiqi. This package needs to be updated...

Given the current COVID-19 situation, I believe that effort should be made for this package to be moved into [community] ASAP, to make it much easier for Arch users to help with the effort to develop a medicine for the virus. This will be the right thing to do, IMO.

Can you add provides=('foldinghome') to the PKGBUILD and remove the replaces part? It is an alternative to the other methods of installing FAH, not a replacement or successor.
